Similar to Xcaret, this all-inclusive park is an outdoor playground with adventures that range from zip ling to rafting to spelunking. Among the park's offerings are two circuits of seven zip lines, amphibious vehicles, river rafting, underground river swimming, caves and caverns, and an unusual hammock ride that ends in a cenote.

Recent travelers loved this park, calling it adventurous and fun. While kids will love the park, Xplor advises it's best for children 5 and older. Reviewers recommended bringing sunscreen, bug spray and towels.

Xplor is located less than 5 miles from central Playa del Carmen. The park provides round-trip transportation (for a fee) from your hotel. Taxis, which typically cost $15 one-way, are also an option. The park is open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. (the park switches to "Xplor Fuego" in the evening, offering the same roster of activities after the sun has gone down). Daytime tickets cost $107.99 for adults and $53.99 for kids ages 5 to 11 if purchased online in advance. Food and nonalcoholic drinks are included in the ticket price. You'll also have access to a personal locker to store your belongings. Xplor Fuego tickets cost $89.99 for adults and $44.99 for kids if purchased online in advance.

#1 Playa del Carmen Beaches

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.
