  • Whether it’s ancient cultural sites and ruins or the endless white beaches to stroll along, there is a lot to see and do, making Playa del Carmen ideal for the whole family.
  • A must-see is the colorful Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue), Playa’s main avenue where you will come across great restaurants and bars, stores and shops and many other visitors from all sort of nationalities strolling along.
  • Playa’s sunny beaches have pristine white sand, a feature that avoids it becoming hot under the sun and thus, no problem for your feet. Participate in some of the many water sports available or just lie on the shore and let your cares melt away.

  • These are some of Playa del Carmen’s highlights, which really shouldn’t be missed: the the Chichén  Itzá Mayan Ruins, the Xcaret Eco-Archaeological Park, and a daily ferry run to Cozumel Island are just some of the things to see here, to give you a feel of the place and its surroundings.
