Timing

Five days will give you enough time to enjoy the beach, and explore many of the best parts of the Caribbean Coast. If you use Playa del Carmen as a base, you can easily take day trips to the Xcaret theme park or Tulum's beachfront Mayan ruins. Don't miss swimming at Xel-Há or one of the numerous cenotes along Carretera 307. The beaches at Paamul and Xpu-Há are also within driving distance, as is the Mayan village of Pac Chen, the ruins at Cobá, and the Reserva de la Biosfera Sian Ka'an.
