Playa del Carmen draws visitors with its expansive palm-lined beaches and year-long party vibe. This coastal town runs along the Riviera Maya, where divers and snorkelers can explore one of the world’s largest coral reef systems. The central part of Playa del Carmen is a vibrant avenue filled with quirky shops and restaurants, as well as a beachfront park that hosts traditional Mayan performances in the evenings.

    Many consider Playa del Carmen to be Cancun’s laidback sister, with most activities revolving around the beach. However, if excitement is what you’re seeking during your holiday, ancient Mayan ruins, adventure parks, and lush jungles are just a short drive away from the town centre.

    Playa del Carmen Beach is a long expanse of sand that’s cut into sections by the town’s many beach resorts and clubs. The widest beach here is located in front of Parque Fundadores, which is marked by the whimsical Playa del Carmen Arch. It’s often packed with tourists, thanks to its close proximity to Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue), and the beach is lined with plenty of beach clubs that rent out sun loungers for a few pesos. You can enjoy some fun on the full-sized volleyball court or try your hand at kitesurfing and paddleboarding on the Caribbean Sea.

    Must-See: Xaman-Ha ruins

    See iguanas lounging on this Mayan site

    The Xaman-Ha ruins (or Playacar ruins) are a complex of 3 stone structures dating back to AD 1200. This ancient fishing village is where Mayan women departed for Cozumel Island to honour the Goddess Ixchel. Compared to the iconic Chichen Itza and El Rey, Xaman-Ha may seem miniscule, but it’s one of the few Mayan sites that’s free to explore. This archaeological site is just a 10-minute walk from Playa del Carmen Beach, but it’s relatively quiet thanks to its jungle surroundings. Look out for iguanas lounging on the stone structures.

    Tlayuda is considered a Mexican version of pizza as it consists of a large tortilla topped with a variety of meats and veggies. Tlayuda is a common staple in most local restaurants in Playa del Carmen. The corn tortilla is first baked on a flat griddle until slightly crispy, then covered with a spread of refried beans. Common toppings include asiento (unrefined pork lard), shredded lettuce, avocado, thin slices of pork or beef, quesillo (Oaxacan string cheese), and a good helping of salsa.

    Parque Fundadores is a recreational park overlooking Playa del Carmen’s main beach. It’s one of the town’s most photographed locations thanks to its 16-metre-tall bronze arch, which has a whimsical design consisting of a man and a women holding hands. There’s a playground built in the shape of a pirate ship, and a stage that hosts live shows all year round. A must-see is the the Danza de los Voladores (Dance of the Flyers), which is a Mayan performance featuring acrobatic skills and traditional music.
