Introducing holidays to Playacar
Treat yourself to white sandy beaches, sparkling waters and world-class diving with a trip to Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. For a touch of luxury on this beautiful stretch of Caribbean coast, you can’t go wrong with the newly developed upmarket community of Playacar. Just south of the large resort of Playa del Carmen, Playacar boasts beautiful private beaches lined with palm trees, azure waters with colourful coral reefs and blissful sunshine to bask in.
Playacar is the ultimate secluded retreat for those looking for a romantic break or a relaxing holiday with friends and family. With indulgent all-inclusive hotels, a mall filled with designer boutiques and a fantastic 18-hole championship golf course, escape from the stresses of daily life and unwind by the sea in this unforgettable Mexican destination. If you want to explore further afield, you’ll find Mayan ruins, jungle adventures and paradise islands all within easy reach.
Playacar itself is a place to relax and unwind on the spectacular beaches, but you’ll also find plenty of activities and adventure around. The championship golf course is popular with golfing fans thanks to its professional course and stunning jungle surroundings. Or why not flex that credit card with a trip to Playacar’s stylish shopping centre?
A trip to neighbouring Playa Del Carmen is a must, where you’ll find a fantastic selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Fifth Avenue, or Quinta Avenida, is a long and vibrant pedestrian strip just 200m from the beach lined with traditional taco-stands, souvenir stalls, restaurants and shops. For family fun, head to the Mayan themed Xcaret Theme Park.
Slightly further afield, the Mayan Riviera’s ancient Mayan ruins are a breath-taking sight and within easy reach for a day trip. The ancient walled city of Tulum is the closest, with Chichen Itza and Coba also popular sites. Or head across the waters to the small paradise island of Cozumel. Renowned for its amazing dive sites, the island is also a lovely place to spend a day strolling through the town and admiring the views from the pristine beaches.
Life’s a beach
Holidays to Playacar are all about hitting the beach. Pull up a sun-lounger and soak up the sun, take a dip in the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea, and watch the sun go down with a cocktail in hand. The beaches in Playacar are mostly private beaches attached to each exclusive hotel so you won’t be bothered by crowds or beach sellers here.
Action and Adventure
If you love being active on holiday, you’ll find plenty of watersports from jet-skiing to windsurfing. You can even take to the skies for a bird’s eye view of the coast with some parasailing. Above all, you can find some of the world’s best diving here, with coral reefs, abundant marine life and underwater caves to explore. The nearby island of Cozumel is home to the world’s largest coral reef after the Great Barrier Reef and draws divers from all over the world.
