Why go to Playa del Carmen

Mexico’s Caribbean playground is a hip coastal city, packed with everything from excellent value hotels and apartments to luxurious all-inclusive resorts. Playa del Carmen holidays are all about fun and relaxation, whether it’s on the beach, in the crystalline sea or exploring jungle-hidden temples and cenotes.

Sandy beaches, a shallow sea and hours of tropical sunshine – Playa del Carmen’s sparkling coastline is an ideal getaway. Not only does it have a beach right by the town centre, there’s also lively Playa Mamitas and laid-back Playacar nearby. The atmosphere is relaxed wherever you go, with sunrise yoga to start the day and chilled-out beach bars to end it.

Beyond the seaside, there’s lots for families to do in and around the resort. Visit the three-story aquarium, watch the Papantla dancers in Parque Fundadores or explore the surrounding area by bicycle. At Xplor Park, you can zipline through the jungle or visit Xcaret Eco Park for wildlife encounters, snorkelling and a boat trip down the ‘Paradise River’.
