We stayed south of Playa Del Carmen at a Barcelo resort. Our tour to Chichen Itza was wonderful as well as swimming in a cenote.

What are the best things to do in Playa del Carmen?

Cenote Maya gives you the opportunity for rappelling into the gorgeous cenote to enjoy the refreshing water. Coupled with a trip to explore at Ek Balam to climb El Torre is an absolute must (even preferred over Chichen Itza)!

I booked Playa Del Carmen mainly for the hotel. For excursions I highly recommend visiting the ruins, especially the Chichen Itza. I also did a day trip to Cozumel, which was awesome.

BRAD's Travel Tips for Playa del Carmen

What is your best overall travel tip for Playa del Carmen?

It's so easy to fly out to the Yucatan and spend all your time out on the beach. Don't get me wrong - it's easy to see why between the sugar soft sand and the azure blue water, but the inner Yucatan is so full of adventure! There are AMAZING ruins like Chichen Itza and Coba just hiding in all that dense jungle waiting for you to discover!
