Holidays to Playacar transport you to one of Mexico’s best all inclusive resorts, complete with stylish hotels, private beaches and a world-class golf course.
A boutique resort
Playacar is quite simply the jewel of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. Just south of Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan peninsula, it’s a self-enclosed gated community of all inclusive hotels and luxury condo complexes. The place comes with its very own 18-hole championship golf course. Plus you’ve got private beaches, top dive spots and a stylish shopping mall right on your doorstep.
White sand beaches
With its brilliant blue ocean and soft white sand shaded by palm trees, this stretch of the Mexican coastline boasts some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. And you’ll be enjoying yours from your own private strip. There’s a nice breeze here, which is cooling for sunbathers and treats windsurfers to some helpfully choppy waves.
Top dive spots
The crystal-clear waters and abundant marine life here are a magnet for divers and snorkellers, and all the hotels offer tuition and kit hire. There are reefs just off-shore for beginners, and underwater caverns and wrecks for the more experienced. Nearby Cozumel Island has the world’s second-largest coral reef – you can even hear sea turtles singing to ward off predators here.
Discover the ancient Mayans
Mayan sights come thick and fast round these parts. Just 45 minutes away is the Mayan walled city of Tulum with its castillo and Temple of the Frescoes. Then a little further on you have the impressive pyramid and statues of Chichen Itza. Meanwhile, over at Xcaret Theme Park, there’s chance to explore Mexican history through reconstructions of Mayan arts and culture.
