Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Cancun Playa del Carmen

Arrive Cancun any time. Shared transfer for your hotel in Playa del Carmen.
Just a few years ago, Playa del Carmen, a former fishing village, served merely as a springboard for visitors taking the ferry to Cozumel. But as more and more ferry-bound people lingered to enjoy its Caribbean beaches and rustic charms, the town came into its own as a resort destination. “Playa,” as it is called by locals, is growing, but still preserves a certain small-town charm and bohemian following.
Overnight in Playa del Carmen

Day 2
Playa del Carmen

Free day to enjoy the white sand beaches and pristine waters of Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya. Here you can find the small coastal fishing village of Puerto Morelos with its attractive beaches and somewhat bohemian village life, and the nearby Palancar Aquarium, Croco Cun crocodile farm, and the Dr. Alfredo Barrera Marin Botanical Garden, which features a replica of a typical Mayan home, a nature trail and native plant species like cacao and chicle (chewing gum) trees.
Overnight in Playa del Carmen

Day 3

Meet at the dock in Playa del Carmen, south of Cancun. We’ll board our boat for a 45-minute cruise across turquoise waters to the beautiful island of Cozumel. Here the Spanish conquerors first stepped on Mexican soil, and a plaque on the beach marks the spot Catholic mass was first celebrated in Mexico. We disembark at the beach club, where we have free time to go swimming or just relax at the beach (sunchairs and umbrellas available). But the real reason to come to Cozumel is for the great snorkeling and diving (equipment to be rented on the spot). After a visit to the
island in 1962, oceanographer Jacques Cousteau proclaimed Cozumel to be one of the finest diving sites in the world. Buffet-lunch and drinks at the beach restaurant. After lunch we head to downtown Cozumel, where we have time to explore the many shops of the island. Cruise back to Cancun. Departure from meeting-point in Playa del Carmen. Includes lunch
NOTE: Port tax of US$12 per person payable direct. Subject to change at anytime.

Day 4
Playa del Carmen Tulum

Transfer from your hotel in Playa del Carmen to your hotel in Tulum
Day at leisure.
The spectacular coastline of Tulum offers white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters with great diving and snorkelling opportunities. Tulum National Park is home to the most picturesque archaeological site in the Riviera Maya, built overlooking the sea. The ancient Mayan fortress city of Tulum dates back to the 13th century. Its most iconic structure, the clifftop Castillo was built as a watchtower, perched on the cliff-top overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The views from here of the Riviera Maya beaches, Caribbean Sea and the surrounding coastal region are spectacular.
Overnight in Tulum

Day 5

We will drive to the archaeological site of Tulum perched on the edge of the ocean. When the Spanish first came upon the site in 1518, they recorded that it was as large as Seville. We will explore the ruins, including the Castle, a beautiful pyramid perched on the edge of a cliff high above the pearl-white beaches below. From here one can see most of the ancient city, as well as a magnificent view of the Caribbean coastline. Approx. duration 4 hours. Includes entrance fee.
