What is good to know if travelling to Playa del Carmen?

  • Bar hop along the lively Quinta Avenida where bars and restaurants stay open well past midnight. Blue Parrot, a bar right on the beach, has become a Playa institution. One especially unusual bar not to be missed is Alux which is dramatically housed in a cave complete with hidden nooks and chambers.
  • Organise a day trip to the ancient ruined Mayan city of Tulum, a must-see while visiting Playa. It’s one of the best preserved ruins and is set overlooking the sea and a rocky hillside.
  • Spend an entire day visiting the two nature parks: Xcaret and Xel-Ha. In both parks you can swim with the dolphins, scuba dive, dive in caverns, or see jaguars, manatees, sea turtles and other endangered species. If that sounds like too much physical activity for one day then relax and lie back in a hammock in a tropical forest.
