Chilled out beach chic

A Mexican coastal town with added international flavour, we love Playa del Carmen's chilled out feel. Spend your day sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling on the sandy beach, then stroll along 5th Avenue's cobbles, explore its eclectic shops and find a place for sunset margaritas. Relax, you're in Playa del Carmen.

Highlights of Playa Del Carmen

Xcaret

Don't miss Xcaret eco-archaeological park for an exciting mix of Mexican culture and nature. Here you can swim with dolphins, explore underground rivers and learn about Mayan society. You'll find a coral reef aquarium, sea turtles, wild birds, and Mayan ruins. And after the sun goes down, the park comes alive with Mexican dance and music. 

Tulum

Perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the Mayan ruins of Tulum are well worth a day trip. Dating back to the 14th century, Tulum was still inhabited when the Spanish arrived 200 years later. Explore the site's well-preserved buildings including the thick city walls, temple and castle. Visit as early as you can to avoid the crowds. 

Cozumel

Jump on a ferry or join a boat trip to the island of Cozumel, Mexico's premier diving destination. On the eastern side of the island is Chankanaab National Park, home to the Mesoamerica reef, the second largest barrier reef in the world. Scuba diving and snorkelling let you get up close to Cozumel's exotic marine life, from 26 types of coral to around 500 species of fish, and even loggerhead, hawksbill, and green turtles. 

Cenotes

Pronounced `say-no-tay', cenotes are pools formed when underground rivers wear away the ground above, revealing the beautifully clear water beneath. Over the centuries, these rivers have formed caverns, limestone formations, stalactites, and stalagmites, many of which you can see on the tours that take you to snorkel or swim in these natural wonders.
