Playa (as the locals call it) is located on the warm Caribbean Sea. Playa is the center jewel of the Mayan Riviera as it is located just South of Cancun, just North of Tulum and is the mainland port for the island of Cozumel. With archeological ruins and natural beauty all a short distance from your door, Playa is the best choice for a vacation on the Riviera Maya.

The possibilities are endless! Looking to relax? Why not try catamaran sailing, horseback riding, or golfing. Feeling a little adventurous? Scuba diving, parasailing, or skydiving will get your adrenaline pumping. Once your days activities are over, Playa’s wonderful restaurants, bars, and beachfront discos can keep you moving until the wee hours.
