Besides Playa del Carmen there is a lot more to see and do in and around the Riviera Maya. Either do it by yourself or book a tour, but make sure you don´t miss out of some beautiful sights
Valladolid - One of Mexico's oldest towns, Valladolid is the perfect spot for delving into Mexico's past.
Bacalar - Go to Bacalar to experience the beauty of its famous lagoon — the Lake of Seven Colors
Tulum - Great beaches, lush jungles, Mayan ruins, cenotes, gorgeous lagoons and upscale nightlife.
Xpu Ha - Nestled right between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Xpu Ha is an oasis most tourist drive right by
Playa del Amor - A hidden (nude) beach at the end of Playacar. Beautiful, quiet but a long hot walk
Punta Allen - A small paradise in the Sian Ka`an Biosphere reserve. Its a bit of a bumpy drive but definitely worth the trip
Isla Holbox - Its crystal-clear blue waters, pristine beaches, and relaxed life pace are enough to attract anyone. With no cars and no worries, Holbox is famous for its bioluminescent waters
Isla Mujeres - Known for beautiful white sand beaches, calm crystal clear turquoise waters and the friendliest locals in the Mexican Caribbean.
Cenotes - Large sinkholes or caves, that have filled with cool, clear groundwater and rainwater over time.
Maya Ruins - Scattered around the peninsula you will find ancient Mayan ruins. Our favorite is Coba but you also can do daytrips to for example Chitzen Itza or Tulum
