From the low-rise buildings to the gentle surf, “laidback” is clearly the buzzword surrounding Playa del Carmen. Forty-five minutes away from Cancun, “Playa,” as the locals call it, provides a stark contrast and welcome foil to its high-glitz, high-energy neighbor for travelers looking for a slower-paced vacation. The former fishing village offers a number of championship golf courses, and its central location is ideal for day trips or excursions. Spend your days exploring the beaches and nature preserves, but be sure not to miss out on the nightlife. Although this beachside city has become one of the fastest growing areas in Mexico, Playa still maintains its coastal cool by mixing European chic with authentic Mexican culture in an effortlessly luxurious way.   In the state of Quintana Roo, it’s known for its palm-lined beaches and coral reefs. Its Quinta Avenida pedestrian thoroughfare runs parallel to the beach, with blocks of shops, restaurants and nightspots ranging from laid-back bars to dance clubs.

Great Scuba/Snorkeling Opportunities
Cenotes or Shuttle to Cozumel for a Day


“Cenotes” are cool fresh water sanctuaries scattered throughout the green jungles and savannas of the Yucatan Peninsula. The entrance to magical caverns and cave passages below the earth, Cenotes in Mexico are created when the ceiling of a cave collapses leaving what is sometimes known elsewhere as a sinkhole. Many Cenotes have cavern systems which are great for exploring with snorkel gear. Venturing into a cavern or cave system, or any overhead environment, on scuba, alone is very technical and advanced, requiring specialized training and safety gear. The cavern and caves of the Yucatan are well known to and important for underwater cavern diving and cave diving explorers who come from all over the world to experience them.
