Explore the ocean beauties of Playa del Carmen

Playa Del Carmen combines nature and nightlife for a vacation you will remember for years to come. The city was founded 90 years ago in the Riviera Maya, less than an hour away from Cancun’s International Airport, making it a great destination for tourists. Its pristine white sand and Caribbean blue ocean feel like summer year-round. You will fall in love with its shore, having many beach options, from quiet spots to relax, to beach clubs with party atmospheres. For a truly memorable experience, dive into the depths on a scuba diving adventure or whale shark tour in Playa Del Carmen.

Don’t miss out on La Quinta, Playa del Carmen’s main street, a pedestrian street lined with restaurants, bars, hotels, and shops. When the sun goes down, the street transforms into a party, so if you are looking for great nightlife, this is your destination! The Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of The World, are located only two hours away and would add a great cultural experience to your trip. We also encourage you to visit a cenote, cenotes are natural sinkholes filled with fresh water, they were sacred for Ancient Mayan civilizations and you can find many of them by immersing in the jungle near Playa del Carmen.
If you wanted, you could hop on a ferry to visit Cozumel Island and its beautiful beaches. Cozumel and Playa are home of the best diving spots so don’t miss the chance to go on a diving excursion in Playa del Carmen to see its reef and colorful fish!
