There’s barely anything you can’t do on holidays to Playa del Carmen. As this resort city has grown, so has its incredible array of restaurants, shops and watersports. By day you can tee-off at a world-class golf course, lounge on a private beach or visit ancient Mayan ruins. By night, you can sip cocktails looking out to sea or dive straight into the bar scene.

Diving in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, or just Playa as it’s often known, is a year-round diving destination. On the reefs just offshore, experienced and amateur divers alike can spot bull sharks, eagle rays and turtles. Inland, you can even dive in the Yucatan’s cenotes, azure sinkholes that plunge deep into the region’s limestone plateau.

From the beach to the bars, the fun never stops on Playa del Carmen breaks. This is a true holiday playground.

  • A day at a beach club is an essential Playa experience. Vibes vary enormously: you could hit the sand early for a juice and sunrise yoga session or dance on tables as the sun goes down.
  • You don’t need any diving experience to snorkel off the coast of Playa del Carmen. Take a guided tour of the reef at nearby Puerto Morelos for your best chance to spot rays, turtles and barracudas.
  • Hit the links at the 18-hole Hard Rock Golf Course, designed by world famous architect Robert Von Hagge, or the PGA championship course, El Camaleón.
  • Pedestrianised 5th Avenue, or Quinta Avenida, is the commercial heart of Playa del Carmen. Come for a stroll, to dip in and out of the shops or to check out the myriad restaurants and bars.
  • After dark head to 10th Street or 12th Street to find Playa del Carmen’s party scene. You can hop from cocktail bars to clubs that get wilder and wilder as the night wears on.
