The area's golf courses are picturesque and challenging – in addition to drawing Playa del Carmen travelers, many Cancún vacationers venture south to play a round on the links. The most popular courses are the Hard Rock Golf Club, the Iberostar Golf Club Playa Paraiso, the Grand Coral Golf Riviera Maya and El Camaleón Mayakoba Golf Club. Hard Rock is praised for all-inclusive perks and challenging course; Grand Coral wins favor with golfers thanks to its fair rates and beautiful design, though some say the greens could use a bit of improvement; and El Camaelón Mayakoba is heralded as a "gem" of a PGA course with well-manicured greens and excellent service. Meanwhile, Iberostar Golf Club Playa Paraiso is a hit with golfers for its tough fairways and attentive staff.

Green fees vary by course, but some offer twilight specials and golf packages for vacationers to save on rates. You'll find Hard Rock in southern Playa del Carmen, Grand Coral Golf Riviera Maya in the center of town and El Camaleón Mayakoba at the northern end. If you're up for the drive Iberostar Golf Club Playa Paraiso sits about 25 minutes north of Playa. For additional information on rates, opening times and more, visit the individual golf courses' websites.

Your hotel or resort will likely occupy a stretch of pristine white sand, but if you feel like venturing off the property to explore more of Playa's shore, you'll find a bevy of alluring beaches.

You'll likely walk past the beach at Parque Fundadores while strolling La Quinta Avenida as it sits parallel to the bustling thoroughfare. You'll know you're in the right place when you see the massive arch sculpture that's erected at the beach's main entrance. According to past visitors, this beach is always crowded with both tourists and locals, but it's also chock full of amenities and conveniently located near the ADO bus terminal and the ferry to Cozumel. It's also home to a playground – perfect if you're traveling with kids. The beach is free to access, but lounge chair or equipment rentals will cost you extra.
