Things To Do
There are many reasons to embrace Playa del Carmen. This dreamy destination is one of the most popular vacation spots in Mexico. Here are the top five Playa del Carmen things to do:
Scuba Diving & Snorkeling
Scuba diving and snorkeling are unforgettable experiences when in Playa del Carmen, one of the best places in the world to do both. A popular dive charter is Reef Quest Divers, and there is a number of others. For snorkeling, rental equipment is widely available at Playa del Carmen resorts, as well as other places within the city.
Pronounced -Sh-car-ret,- this eco-archaeological park is filled with Mexican and Mayan flavor, color, music and culture. Inside the park is a dolphin aquarium, turtle sanctuary, butterfly pavilion, aquarium and aviary, and views of flamingos, manatees, spider monkeys and jaguars. Xcaret also offers a variety of Playa del Carmen excursions, like dolphin interactions, stingray encounters, shark swims, scuba tours and speedboat rides. Plus, enjoy a beach for swimming, a lazy river, diving and snorkeling, and a small Mayan ruin to climb.
As cave tours go, this eco-park stands above the rest. Lauded as one of the best-kept secrets on the Yucatan Peninsula, Rio Secreto (Secret River) is a natural park consisting of an underground river and a collection of caves. Bright turquoise water contrasts with the caramel- and mocha-colored rock formations within the caves, including stalactites and stalagmites. Swim the river, climb through caves and marvel at the natural beauty, plus learn Mayan beliefs about the -underworld.-
A natural eco-adventure park, Xplor Park is located in the Riviera Maya, just south of Playa del Carmen. Activities include 14 zip lines, amphibious vehicles, and underground rivers featuring amazing stalactites and stalagmites created millions of years ago.
