The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Explore Playa del Carmen's surroundings by going to Tulum (MiNiAtUrE art Gallery, Tulum Archaeological Site, & more), Chichen Itza (in Chichen Itza) and Ek Balam (in Ek Balam Village). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Xcaret, get outside with Outdoor Activities, take the plunge with a skydiving experience, and delve into the distant past at Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá.
