Best Things to Do in Playa del Carmen
Most activities revolve around Playa del Carmen's renowned beach, just minutes from the main thoroughfare, La Quinta Avenida. At the nearby marina, you can charter either a fishing boat or a diving boat. Just four miles south, the popular Xcaret Eco-park showcases the Mayan Riviera's wild- and marine life. Still farther south you'll find some of the area's best golf courses -- recent travelers especially recommend Playacar Golf Club.
