My friend and I are heading to Riu Playacar on Saturday. My friend is a non-swimmer, while I really enjoy snorkeling. As this is the first time we will both be in the Playa Del Carmen area, we needed help deciding our itinerary. After much research, below is what we have tentatively decided on, any input will be greatly appreciated.
Sat Dec 17 – Reach Riu Playacar /explore nearby markets.
Sun – Tulum and Xel-Ha
Mon – Akumal (or Cozumal??)
Tues – Chichen Itza
Wednesday – Rest day
Thursday – Xcaret
Friday – Rest/explore shops nearby .
Sat- Fly back home!
-Would you recommend booking tours from the Riu itself?
-Are there any specific companies that provide these tours?
-My travel agent has suggested that we try to go to Isla Mujeres as well, but it seems to be a long journey. Any thoughts on if this is doable?
-Is the itinerary balanced to be inclusive of a non-swimmer?
-Should we be considering other sites/activities as well?
