Create an itinerary including Playa Carmen
Stroll along the sand or relax in the shade on Playa Carmen, a lengthy beach with room enough to find yourself a quiet spot. Surfers flock here, but the strong tides don't lend themselves much to swimming. Likewise, this may not be the best place for children, though rock pools at low tide provide places to play. Refuel at the onsite restaurant and browse handcrafted jewelry and clothing from the occasional vendor. Plan your visit to Playa Carmen and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Santa Teresa trip itinerary planning site.
