If you’d rather stay closer to the surface, there are still plenty of other aquatic activities for you to choose from!
Equipped only with mask, snorkel and flippers, organized snorkeling tours are a much gentler way of discovering the beautiful coral and unique wildlife of Playa’s underwater paradise.
If you’re looking for something more energetic, why not try your hand at kite-boarding or wind-surfing? If it’s your first time, certified instructors are on hand to teach you the basics and keep an eye on you!
With sailfish, marlin, barracuda and tuna in abundance in the local off-shore waters, Playa del Carmen can also provide some exciting deep-sea fishing trips. Check with our front desk for seasonal variations and make sure you book ahead.
Other watersports available at Playa include jet-ski, catamaran sailing and swimming with dolphins.
