5 Things to do with Kids in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Mexico is a big place and I haven’t visited it as much as I should have. So our top 5 is based on Playa Del Carmen where we lived for the month. Some of the trips will be simple day trips and some are right on the doorstep.

1. Xcaret

Some of the birds in the sanctuary

Nature’s playground. Here the kids can snorkel underground rivers, visit bird sanctuaries, release sea turtles into the ocean, eat buffets, visit an aquarium, watch a live theatre production and more. This is a day you might want to extend.

2. Cenotes

The kids taking their first dip

I fell in love with these beautiful natural phenomenon. While I adored each and everyone we visited, the most kid friendly was the Grand Cenote, which had a shallow beach-style area for the kids to wade in.

3. Ancient Mayan Ruins

Interactive history lessons in the Mayan Ruins

Whether it was climbing 42 metre high pyramids in Coba or helping paint wood carvings at Chichen Itza – our kids loved the ruins. Ruins can be a fairly dull thing for kids, but enter a challenge or something out of the ordinary and they are having the time of their life. Costs vary depending on which one you are going to.

4. Beaches

Ranked among the best in the whole world, these Mexican beaches are not just breathtaking but also family - friendly

The Caribbean beaches in Mexico are perfect. Blue water, white sand, excellent weather. The beach in Akumul is even more awesome as the kids can swim with wild sea turtles while you relax under leaning palm trees. What kid doesn’t love the beach?
