Playa Del Carmen Mini Guide
How do I get to Playa del Carmen?
It’s very easy to get to Playa del Carmen from Europe and North America. Most of the big tour operators in the UK
have direct flights from London
and regional airports including East Midlands, Glasgow
. The journey from the airport to the city is around twenty minutes and there are plenty of hire cars available at the airport if you don’t have a resort transfer booked.
What can I do in Playa del Carmen?
The easy answer to that is shop! The city has its own ‘Fifth Avenue’ called Quinta Avenida and the authorities have done their utmost to make sure the Mexican version is as populated as the New York one. You’ll find all the top designer names as well as the Apple Store and top restaurant chains. Many of them are there specifically to cater for the cruise ship guests but as you’re there you might as well take advantage. The other key attraction of the city is the beach. It’s absolutely perfect and dazzlingly white with attractive little beach bars and water sports. The sea can be a bit rough for little ones on times but there’s plenty for them to do.
Finally, if you have a hire car, why not explore a little of the Yucatan? You’ll be able to visit Xcaret, the semi-authentic nature and archaeological park on the Riviera Maya and do an underwater walk to see the marine life – no scuba skills required either! Inland there’s the world famous Chichen Itza with its step pyramids amidst the jungle.
