A typical day in Playa del Carmen – Photo journal

Curious what a typical day in Playa del Carmen would be? The Riviera Maya has a ton of things to entertain you and admittedly, there is not a typical day, where routine sets in and you find predictable things to do, and little excitement. Each day brings a day that you can design for yourself or you can let the day unfold and take you where it decides to take you.

A photo journal of a day in Playa del Carmen

sunrise in playa del carmen mexico in the Riviera Maya - Hotel Cielo
Watched the sunrise on the beach at 630 am

A great breakfast at Carboncitos before we really start the day and head off to the Tulum ruins for a half day, self guided adventure using public transport and no tour guide!

Our self guided tour with our guide book took us 2 hours to complete at the Tulum Ruins. Though the beach was tempting the beach at Playa del Carmen was calling us

to shopping on 5th Ave for a little bit as we needed to have a shower, and get ready for dinner…

Strawberry Margarita at happy hour - HOtel Cielo
These margaritas served as the dinner cocktails and dessert! Man these are good!


5th ave night walk-HOtel Cielo
Needed a long walk after that dinner, skipped late night cocktails, walked 5th Ave and called it a night as I know that the sun wakes up at 615 am and I don’t want to miss my morning sunrise!

That was a day in Playa del Carmen taken by a guest that decided to share his experience. Thank you for your photos, a journal of your adventures and sharing this with all of us! Loving these photo journals as they do speak louder than words!
