There is always something to do in Playa del Carmen. First of all, there’s the beach! If you need more, there are also a lot of clubs, bars, and restaurants where you will have a great time. On the other hand, if you want to chill, you can visit a spa or a wellness center, they are among the latest trends in town.
There are many options… but, wait… what’s that on the other side of the sea? It’s Cozumel! Just 45 minutes away by ferry, and there are departures every hour.
Yes, east of Playa del Carmen this magical island awaits. It’s the first Mexican place where the sun rises everyday, and one of the most important scuba diving destinations in the world, thanks to the crystal-clear ocean and the wonderful reefs it has.
If you want to enjoy adventure sports, Cozumel is the right place for you, there you can find ziplines, and practice rappelling, kitesurfing, snorkelling, or go cycling, canoing or kayaking, and also you can visit some cenotes.
If you prefer something quieter, you can visit the archaeological site of San Gervasio, a former sanctuary dedicated to Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of the moon and fertility. You can also enjoy Cozumel’s beaches: San Francisco, Playa Encantada, and Palancar, or the National Marine Park Chankanaab where you can see crocodiles and sea lions.
When you come to Playa del Carmen, remember that Cozumel is a great opportunity to spend a day to remember. Spring and early summer are the best seasons to enjoy it, because the weather is nice (it’s not rainy season), and you can find good travel services rates
