Playa del Carmen

Riviera Maya runs south, from Cancun to Tulum, and covers 120 km of coastline. Cancun and the destinations of the Riviera Maya, including Holbox, Isla Mujeres, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and Tulum are currently the most important tourist destination in Mexico and Latin America.

How to get from Cancun Airport to Playa del Carmen:

If you travel alone or as a couple to Playa del Carmen or Tulum, the cheapest option is the bus, look for ADO stalls. They leave every 30 minutes. If you travel with family to a hotel, collective taxis usually give a good rate.When you visit the Riviera Maya, rent a bicycle and get to know the area, tour the bike paths of Playa del Carmen (PDC).

Regional Street food.

Pork and cochinita.Both can be tortas and tacos. Taste which ever you prefer. We recommend Don Honorio's tacos if you are in Tulum, and tortas cochilocas if you are in Playa del Carmen.Empanadas.They have no tortilla they are made of white corn dough, and stuffed with cheese. They are fried and with red onion garnish, street cheap and very good.Kibis.They are reminiscent of Lebanese Kibbeh: fried meatballs, stuffed with more ground beef, but with a regional red onion and cabbage topping. A beach classic.Marquesitas.The traditional waffle pipes from Yucatan stuffed tiwh Dutch edam cheese. Find the guy in the street car and enjoy.

Unmissable spots in PDC:

  • Promenade and watch the wonderful sunset from "el Portal Maya".
  • Visit at least 3 cenotes. Our favorites are: Dos ojos, Gran cenote and Chac mool.
  • Diving and snorkeling. Into coral reefs or cenotes: it's another world.
