Parks and nature in Playacar

Top nature recommendations from locals

“Playa del Carmen’s main dining, shopping and entertainment district is located on the vibrant, pedestrian-only 5th Avenue. At the South end of this charming, cobblestone street is a central square in which visitors can view various free performances throughout the day. The ‘Voladores de Papantla,’ (Mayan Flying Men) climb an 80-foot pole and play traditional Mayan music with flutes and a drum. Four of the five men, spiral slowly downward, suspended upside down by their feet with a rope, which is attached to a rotating platform at the top of the pole. The 5th remains at the top to play the music while the others descend down, flying in a circular motion.”

“Playacar beaches are beautiful with less people. The entrance is at the Cozumel ferry. Pass through the bar Señor Frogs to the other side. On the walk back go to the Maya Ruins in Playacar.”
