Playa del Carmen

Once a sleepy village, Playa del Carmen is now a favourite of Europeans, who enjoy a relaxed Mexican-Caribbean feeling with marvellous beaches by day and numerous restaurants and a lively night-life in the evening. Explore the coastline and visit the archaeological sites of Tulum, Cobá and Chichen Itza and water parks of Xel-há and Xcaret.
