The Shopping & Street Life of Playa del Carmen
Although our tour starts in Playa del Carmen, first you will be picked up at the airport in Cancun. Let’s check out the street life. Nowadays, Playa del Carmen’s Fifth Avenue is lined with hundreds of shops, bars and restaurants. Tourism to this once small fishing town began with the passenger ferry service to Cozumel, an island across the channel.
A Dune Buggy Tour on Cozumel Island In
We go on a daytrip today. From the pier in Playa del Carmen, we catch the ferry to the island of Cozumel, which takes about 30 minutes to reach. Large parts of this island are covered with mangrove forest and is home to many endemic animal species. We are provided with a guided dune buggy tour, covering the popular attractions. We also have time for swimming. By the way, lunch is included on today’s tour.
A World Famous Archaeological Site, a Clear-Water Sinkhole & Sightseeing in a Colonial Town
We are going on another daytrip today. We are firstly taken to the ruins of Chichen Itza. There we are provided with a guided tour. Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most visited archaeological sites in the Americas. Next, we head to a sinkhole (a.k.a. cenote). Created as a result of a meteor crashing into the area approximately 66 million years ago and used only centuries ago by the indigenous tribe for sacrificial offerings, nowadays this cenote is used by tourists like us who enjoy swimming in clear waters. Lunch is included on today’s tour, near the cenote. Lastly, we visit a colonial town called Valladolid. There we have around 30 minutes to walk around freely. The highlights are the cathedral, city hall and central park.
Swimming with Sea Turtles, Canyoning Under Blue-Water Caves & an Exotic Maya Walled City
Before relocating to Cancun, we go on another daytrip. The first destination is Tulum. There we are provided with a guided tour of a pre-Columbian Maya walled city surrounded by exotic beaches and well-groomed landscape. Next, we board onto a boat heading to a reef. There we swim with sea turtles. Following this, we check out a sinkhole which features blue waters and caves. There we go on a canyoning tour. Afterwards, we have lunch, which is included on today’s tour. The day ends in Cancun. We make sure to check out the ‘Hotel Zone’. Almost always filled in the evenings with tourists, this shopping and nightlife area is best described as a huge venue which gets top entertainers and DJs.
An Open Bar on a Catamaran Headed for the 'Island of Women'
We go on a daytrip today. From the pier in Cancun, we get onto a catamaran headed to the Underwater Museum. There we go snorkeling. Sea turtles are often seen while snorkeling. Next, we cruise to a beach club on the island of Isla Mujeres (a.k.a. the Island of Women). There we have lunch, which is included on today’s tour. Also, included on this beach club is an open bar. After our meal, we get back onto the catamaran and are taken to the other side of the island. This is where the city center is located. We have about an hour and a half to walk around and shop. Alternatively, you could rent a golf cart and drive around the island. We get back onto the catamaran by 4:30pm and return to Cancun around 6:00pm.
