Overview of Playacar

Hotel Riu Palace Mexico is nestled against the coast of Playacar, which is arguably the finest area of Mexico’s Riviera. It is made up of gated complexes and fine hotels, and there’s even an 18-hole championship golf course. Playacar is against the coastline, which means that nearly all of the resorts have access to the beach, or a private stretch of their own. On this area of the Riviera, the sun is always shining and temperatures are still at a tempting 23°C in the cooler winter months. Playacar is within reach of the party city of Cancun, although there are so many amazing attractions in Playacar that you may not find the time to visit anywhere further afield!

Things to do in Playacar

Inside the Riu resort, the focus is definitely around water sports. This means that guests needn’t travel far to experience the true beauty of the ocean while diving, kayaking, windsurfing and body-boarding. Outside the resort, there are two exciting parks close by. Xplor Park is full of opportunities for adrenaline sports, including ziplining, driving through a treacherous rainforest and underground river walking. There is also Xcaret, which is much like Xplor but with less adrenaline and more than 50 family-orientated activities to discover. Whatever the season, there are always exciting things to see and places to visit during holidays to Mexico. It’s time to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and embrace the opportunities that Playacar provides in abundance. From exploring the nearby parks and trying out water sports to simply relaxing by one of Hotel Riu Palace Mexico’s pools with a good book, there is something for everyone to enjoy, and you can do as much or as little as you like.
