  • 1. Xcaret Eco Theme Park
    Xcaret Eco Theme Park, Playa del Carmen

    I would actually suggest planning to spend 2 days here. There were things that we ended up not seeing here. Our tickets included transportation, which worked out well for us.

  • 2. Delphinus
    Delphinus Riviera Maya, Riviera Maya

    This is where we swam with dolphins and we enjoyed it. Our tickets came with transportation and a day at the waterpark with free food and beverage so it turned out to be a really good deal.

  • 3. Wet'n Wild / Parque Nizuc Waterpark
    Wet'n Wild Cancun, Cancun

    This is the waterpark connected to Delphinus and the kids enjoyed it immensely. As stated above, food and drink were included in our price, which made it really easy.

  • 4. Playacar Palace
    Playacar Palace, Playa del Carmen

    I would suggest staying in this area of Playa del Carmen. There is a small ruins area and a market within walking distance of the hotels in this area.
