Playa del Carmen Vacation, Tours, Travel Packages & Experiences


Playa del Carmen is located on the Riviera Maya coastal strip on the Yucatan Peninsula 70 kilometres/45 miles south of Cancun. Originally a small fishing village, it has now developed into a sophisticated resort with a distinct European feel. It is possibly Mexico’s trendiest resort. This is evident on Mexico vacations as one strolls down the pedestrian only main thoroughfare, Fifth Avenue, locally known as Quinta Avenida. It is the place to see and be seen in Playa del Carmen. By day it is busy with people browsing the shops and boutiques and at night, by roving musicians who entertain diners in the many restaurants and bars. many scuba divers and snorkelers due to its location on a coral reef and where one can view stingray, moray eels and sea turtles. 

There is easy access to the island of Cozumel reached by a short ferry ride and several Mayan sites including Tulum. An interesting site is Xcaret Theme Park, nature-based and offering the visitor a selection of attractions such as a replica of a Mayan village and the ability to go swimming with dolphins on a Mexico vacation.
