Slide 1: Top Things to Do in Playa del Carmen If you’re vacationing in Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cozumel or Cancun, odds are you’re looking forward to many a day spent tanning and sipping margaritas on the beach . Our top ten things to do in in this exotic and highly sought after area will take you from the beach to the ruins and the jungle and back— all in a manageable day (or half-day!) trip. Slide 2: 10) Visit A Cenote If you haven't yet heard about what a Cenote is, don't worry. These are naturally occurring in this area of the planet. There are many explanations of why they happened including the asteroid hitting our planet theory. There are breath-taking fresh water underground pools unlike anything you have ever seen before. If you are visiting this area, make sure you visit at least one. Slide 3: 9) Visit Akumal Beach At just half an hour south of Playa del Carmen, Akumal is a must-see for nature and animal-lovers. Imagine the quintessential palm trees, white sand, and clear surf— and then add in droves of sea turtles. Akumal is known for its Green Sea Turtles, Hawksbill Turtles, and Loggerhead Turtles, which visitors can swim with just off shore. The beach fills up quickly, so going earlier in the day is always best. Come prepared with your own snorkel or dive gear, or rent some on the beach. Either way, plan to enjoy the sun, the surf, and some quality time with the friendliest turtles you’ll ever meet. Slide 4: 8) Rent a Boat in Playa del Carmen or Tulum Party it up, cruise, snorkel, swim, tan and relax. Explore Playa’s coast, scope out hidden beaches, find an isolated spot to cast anchor, get your tan on on -deck, have a party onboard with your friends, or go for a fishing trip; no matter what you do, renting a small yacht for the day will make for a truly luxurious day in Playa del Carmen . Book your boat for a great crew, low price, and a one-of-a-kind Playa experience. Includes Captain & assistant, shuttle to and from and bring all the food and alcohol you want. Slide 5: 7) Visit the world's best eco-parks This region of Mexico is known for its wildlife, from the reefs to the inland jungles. For exploring Playa’s wild side, you have a few options: Xplor Xichen Xenotes Xenses Xel - Ha Xcaret Xoximilco Coba Slide 6: 6) Make the most of your nights in Playa There are plenty of family-friendly things to do in Playa del Carmen, but for those who are enjoying their vacations without kids in tow, the nightlife in Playa is a huge draw. Saturday is every day here, and Playa is rich with bars, nightclubs, and live music, whether it’s electronic dance music or salsa you’re itching to dance to. Slide 7: 5) Climb the ruins at Cobá Trek through the jungle, swim in a cenote and climb the highest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatán at Cobá. At about an hour and a half outside of Playa del Carmen, Cobá and its surrounding environment warrant a half-day trip at the very least. You can book your trip to Cobá, and expect to enjoy round-trip transportation with air conditioning, a guided tour of the pyramids, a visit to the cenote, a Mayan community visit, and a complimentary buffet lunch and water bottles. Slide 8: 4) Visit the ruins at Tulum While Cobá is unique for being the tallest pyramid in the Yucatán—and the only one visitors can climb—the Tulum ruins are unique for being the only ruins directly overlooking the ocean. At two hours south of Playa del Carmen, Tulum boasts some of the best beaches in the world— with the beach below the ruins being among the most pristine in the area— as well as an amazing selection of beachfront restaurants and spas and a downtown area perfect for kicking back with a mojito and listening to some live music. Slide 9: 3) Explore Chichen Itzá Any way you look at, Chichen Itzá is an impressive site. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, to name just two of its accolades. Here’s another one: it’s the second most visited site in all of Mexico. The main pyramid at Chichen Itzá is a physical representation of the Mayan calendar, and during the spring and fall equinoxes the sun casts the shadow of a serpent moving along its stairs. Although visitors can no longer climb the pyramid, Chichen Itzá remains a world famous site that is not to be missed. Slide 10: 2) Go Snorkeling and SCUBA Diving Playa del Carmen and Cozumel are internationally recognized as some of the best dive locations in the world, with a plethora of tropical fish and a national reef park just offshore of both, and a wealth of cenotes— underground freshwater caves— further inland. For the best diving in Mexico, take the ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel and spend a day exploring the reefs. For a completely unique experience, you can dive in one of Playa del Carmen’s many cenotes, with the guidance of a certified cave diver. Snorkeling more your speed? Not to worry— many of the cenotes offer entrance to snorkelers, and there’s plenty to see offshore, as well. Slide 11: 1) Experience Mamitas Beach If you’re going to Playa del Carmen, you’re going to want to spend some time on the beach and Mamitas Beach is, by far, the place to be. Located on Calle 28, Mamitas is lined with restaurants and hotels. It’s worth noting that food is always going to be more expensive on the beach, so if you’re looking to save money be sure to stop somewhere on your way to and from the playa. You can get transportation to and from  your stay, all-inclusive resort or different city to visit Mamitas beach and 5ta avenida for the day. Slide 12: Copyright © 2017,  Playa-Vacation .
