I believe Palace resorts include a couple of tours in the package, which visit some of the items KVR mentions. Check the Palace website, to see what your options are.

Tulum is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It pairs nicely with a visit to Coba, where most of the jungle has been left in place.

I just returned from a resort near Playa del Carmen. We spent one day at Xcaret - Had a wonderful time! Swimming with the dolphins was a great experience, one I'll never forget, and hope to repeat some day.

When you visit Tulum, be sure to make time for a swim! A lovely jewel of a beach, nice waves, gorgeous views from the water. I wore my suit under my clothes, stripped down and dove in. There is a shower facility somewhere on the grounds(which may be the one we saw in the little mall outside the gates)if you want to rinse off the salt.

I so agree with pipingcat! The beach at Tulum is gorgeous. Take a picnic!

I'd recommend hiring a car to visit Yal-ku lagoon rather than going with a tourist group so you can go early when it's quiet or late in the day...

Visit a cenote (again you can go independently). Some are big, some small. Great to cool off in on a hot afternoon.

Chichen Itza is stunning
