Playa del Carmen, Mexico, offers everything a beach lover could want, from swimming in clear blue waters to great waves for boogie boarding or surfing. When you travel to Playa, as the town is playfully called, you'll find luxurious shopping, golfing and fun outdoor activities all near your Playa del Carmen hotel. Slip into your swimsuit for a fun day at the beach, then change into dressier duds for an exciting night out.
Things to Do in Playa del Carmen
When you book Playa del Carmen accommodation, you can stay right on or near the beach; the ocean and all it has to offer will beckon from right outside your door. But you don’t have to get “tide” down; golfers will enjoy the many beautiful courses nearby, and if you're an animal lover, be sure to visit the Jungle Place—a wildlife sanctuary about 50 km from the beach that is home to endangered spider monkeys. Archaeology buffs, the ancient Coba Mayan ruins will scratch your itch for history, zip-lining and kayaking in Mayan villages will give thrill the more adventurous. For shopping and people-watching, you can't beat the 20 blocks of La Quinta Avenida. Finally, take advantage of the exceptional diving spots and immerse yourself in dazzling and colourful sea life. When you've worked up an appetite, head downtown for a great burrito along Avenida Benita Juarez.
Getting to & Around Playa del Carmen
Hitting the pavement on your own two feet is the best way to get around Playa del Carmen; the beach area hosts most of the action. For trips further afield, taxis serve the Playa del Carmen hotels. Alternatively, book a Wotif hire car and pick it up from Cancun International Airport (CUN) after you’ve booked one of our flights to Playa del Carmen. A bus also operates between the airport and Playa more than 10 times a day.
