Playa del Carmen
Playa Del Carmen is a great city with numerous ethnic restaurants, boutique shopping and fun nightlife. The beach is stunning and there are plenty of dining options right on the water.
Puerto Aventuras is quite a bit smaller and quieter, and only fifteen minutes south of Playa. It has a large marina and a gorgeous beach. The plaza has more than a dozen restaurants and retail shopping.
Akumal is two hours south of Cancun and is home to a reknown snorkeling lagoon, gorgeous beaches, and great restaurants. A wonderful place to relax and spend quality time with friends and family.
