Puerto Aventuras is a private, gated community on the Mayan Riviera 20 miles south of Playa del Carmen where you can find exciting night clubs and plenty of high-end shopping along La Quinta Avenida. The ferry from Playa takes you to Cozumel, a world-renowned Dive location. The ferry runs hourly from two locations.
About 25 miles further south from Puerto Aventuras is the town of Tulum, home to restored ruins of the ancient Mayan city. Hire a guide for 40 minutes to hear the history of the site. You can swim in the Caribbean there, if you descend many, many stairs down to the surf.
For more history, culture, and popular activities available in the area visit the Puerto Aventuras website. You can read about the Dolphin Swim, the local golf course (Greens Fee of $79. u.s for 18 holes w/electric cart), sport fishing calendars of which fish are abundant in which months, sailing and parasailing, a description of the Si'an Kaan preserve, etc. There is plenty to do in the area!
