Accommodation & places to visit in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen was originally known as Xaman-Ha or waters of the north. It is located approximately 40 miles south of Cancún. This once small fishing town is now the home to about 100,000 people. It is the third largest city in the Quintana Roo. The close location to Cancún makes Playa del Carmen an excellent side trip on a weekend.

Coba dates back to 500 A.D. but around 900 A.D. when it was over taken with jungle. This mostly untouched area gives the visitors a very “Indiana Jones” feel. This site has limestone roads, a pyramid, ancient ball court, and castle. Xel-Ha or “the place where water is born” is a natural aquarium. The name comes from the constant flow of bubbles that come from the river floor. The location is in the midst of archaeological sites, caves, and thick jungle. Cavernas Chaaktun can be explored from both above and below water. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful caverns in the Yucatan displaying both stalagmites and stalactites.
