Playa del Carmen Activities
PLAYA DEL CARMEN Activities
Over the years, Playa del Carmen has become known as the home of some of the best outdoor activities in the world! Not only do we have world-class snorkeling, we also have some of the worlds most recognized golf courses, diving spots and sport fishing tours. Or for those a little less adventurous we also have horseback riding and beach-side bike rentals.
Within a 12-minute drive of Playa, we have El Camaleon Mayakoba, home of the First PGA TOUR Event in Mexico, the Mayakoba Golf Classic (Dec 3-6, 2020), Playa Paraiso, host of Big Break Mexico, Gran Coyote (formerly Grand Coral) and the locals favorite, Hard Rock.
Playa del Carmen is also a great starting point for diving and sport-fishing adventures. It's a quick boat ride or ferry to Cozumel, which has some of the best wall diving and drift dives in the Caribbean. Cozumel has abundant marine life, great conditions and a variety of dive sites. Or if staying above the water andsport-fishing is more your thing; marlin, sailfish, grouper, mahi mahi (dorado), barracuda and snapper are almost always in season.
Or, if low stress adventures like horseback riding or biking are more to your liking, The Snorkel Shop can give you a couple hours in the sun as you leisurely make your way down one of our white-sand beaches.
