Playa del Carmen holidays 2020
Playa Del Carmen holidays can be as entertaining or as endlessly relaxing as you want them to be. Not content to just soak up the sun on the beach or take a dip in the sparkling ocean of the Mexican Caribbean Coast? Why not try your hand at a little windsurfing, enjoy the gorgeous views from above with some parasailing or explore the hidden treasures of the ocean with an exciting diving or snorkelling expedition?
Spend your days shopping on 5th Avenue and grab some traditional street food when you need a snack, but save some room for one of the restaurants in the evening. After dinner you can party like a local at the many bars and clubs by the beach, knock back a few tequila shots, put on your dancing shoes and show off your salsa skills!

Things to do in Playa del Carmen
A holiday in Playa del Carmen gives you the chance to sample some of the finest golf, nature, lifestyle and shopping in Mexico.
For boutiques galore, wander up and down the popular shopping streets of Fifth Avenue and La Quinta Avenida, and spend your holiday money on some souvenirs for your wardrobe or gifts for back home. Take a break every now and then in one of the many restaurants and bars on the strip and watch the world go by.
People travel from miles around to play a few games on the Playa del Carmen’s golf courses, and golf enthusiasts will love the Golf Club Playacar, the Grand Coral Golf Riviera Maya and El Camaleón Mayakoba Golf Club.
The Xcaret eco-park is an incredible day out, as it has lots of nature-themed attractions and activities all in one beautiful spot. You can go swimming and diving, meet turtles, sharks and dolphins, visit the aviary, and even stick around in the evening for live performances and fine dining. The aqua park at Xel-Ha offers a lot of the same watery experiences as Xcaret, but is natural rather than man-made.
Think of Mexico and beautiful beaches are likely to come to mind, so when planning a holiday in Mexico you’ll want to make sure you experience the beach life. Playa del Carmen is one of Mexico’s most loved beach resorts and is perfect for those that want to mix sunshine, sand and culture. The colourful and inviting village is lined with beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal azure waters that adorn the Caribbean Coast in Mexico.
With the beaches comes all the fun of the beautiful blue sea, including the chance to experience all kinds of water sports. You can break up a long day lazing on the sand by trying your hand at windsurfing, parasailing, diving, snorkelling, or just sailing around on a sailboat or catamaran with its own bar, so you can sip a cocktail while admiring the beach from afar.
