Playa Del Carmen Vacation Families

A Playa del Carmen vacation for families will be like paradise on Earth! A trendy beach town with plenty to see, spend your days here soaking up local Mexican culture. Kids will particularly love the laidback vibe of Playa Del Carmen’s friendly locals, and parents can surely appreciate its affordability. Here, nature and new-age combine to create a spectacular ambiance perfect for families. Watch calm blue skies set over restaurants like El Fogon, for example, also perfect for sampling authentic Mexican cuisine. Animal lovers can also spot countless wildlife in Playa Del Carmen, whether just by strolling and being at one with nature or visiting special sanctuaries. Head to Xel-Ha Park to meander down a lazy river and swim with dolphins. Or, hop aboard an Atlantis Submarine to get a closer glimpse at Playa Del Carmen’s marine life!

Often existing naturally alongside humans, kids who really love adventure should ferry to Cozumel to swim with the adorable turtles. There, stop by the Xaman-Ha Aviary, or, plan an excursion to Xcaret Eco-Park, equipped with a jungle! Whether you want to spend the day shopping on Quinta Avenida, relaxing on Punta Esmeralda beach, (which also has its own cenote!) or taking photos of the optical illusions at the 3D Museum of Wonders, we have all you could want and more for your next Playa del Carmen vacation for families!

Underground Caves and River: Rio Secreto with Kids

Rio Secreto is Riviera Maya’s very own underground adventure! A formation of ruins surrounded by a crystal blue river, otherwise known as a cenote, Mexico is one of the few places where you can witness such a beautiful sight. I had the delight of visiting this natural wonder during my family trip to Cancun, and I can confidently say Rio Secreto with kids was one of the most memorable experiences we’ve ever had!
