Semana Santa in Playa del Carmen

Semana santa in Playa del Carmen (Easter week/Holy week)  is one of the busiest times of the year! Many people from different countries and other states in Mexico come to Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya during this Easter week and it truly gets crazy fun!

If you are traveling with Family, this is a great time to start booking your visits to different parks and activities, because lots of travelers will be in town and if you wait until the last minute to book anything you might not be able to find a specific one you have in mind, specially if you are travelling with a big group.

Still don’t worry about finding things to do during your vacation, as Playa del Carmen has something for everyone, ranging from peaceful walks along the famous Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue) or the beach to a day’s adventure at the eco-archeological park Xcaret.

Here is the top 5 family activities we recommend:

#1 Xcaret

Upon arrival you feel the magic of the cenotes, where you can:

  • Descend by assisted rappel to a wonderful cenote of turquoise blue water, sheltered by an ancient cave.
  • Fly on fun zip-lines that glide into a refreshing splashdown.
  • Practice kayaking surrounded by a landscape full of exotic vegetation.
  • Enjoy snorkeling in a setting that invites you to relax in the middle of the wilderness.

If you are not staying at an All Inclusive hotel and are looking for a quiet beach during your stay on Easter week we recommend going to the beach in the Playacar area or if you have access to a car we also recommend going to Xpu-ha!

Xpu Há is 34 km from Playa del Carmen and 93 kilometres from Cancún. It is in the municipality of Solidaridad, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Xpu Há has an assortment of hotels, cabins, restaurants and dive shops to cater to tourists
