Five popular water sports in Playa del Carmen

By SIMCA Desarrollos

Playa del Carmen is one of the world's favorite destinations to live and vacation in the Mayan Riviera, not only because of its natural beauty and breathtaking beaches, but also because of the wide variety of activities you can do there, especially when it comes to water sports. Here's a list of five water sports you can try if you live or visit Playa del Carmen:

1. Snorkeling


In Playa del Carmen you'll find a wide range of snorkeling tours, where you'll be able to swim with sea turtles, explore a coral reef, see the largest concentration of whale sharks in the world, and much more. You can choose the tour that seems best to you depending on where you're going, or the number of activities you're looking to do in one day; some tours include an afternoon at the beach, or a visit to a cenote.


2. Jet skiing


Enjoy the Caribbean and the most beautiful beaches while on a jet ski. There are plenty of rental options in Playa del Carmen; just make sure to book in advance. Most jet ski rental agencies include a guide, safety equipment, local medical insurance, and allow for cancellations 24 hours in advance in case your plans (or your party’s minds) change.


3. Diving


Another activity you can do is scuba diving. There's plenty of different options for beginners and experts alike. You can also choose between diving in the open sea or in a cenote. There are diving tours in shallow cenotes, and even three-day courses, in case you want to get started with the basics with certified guides.


4. Experience in Jet


If you're an adrenaline junkie, try a jetting experience. With certified instructors, this is a very safe activity you can do along the Playa del Carmen coastline. We recommend booking in advance, as this activity is becoming more and more popular along the Mayan Riviera.


5. Kitesurfing


You can also use your vacation to try something new. Playa del Carmen offers kitesurfing schools with top level equipment and safety standards so you can have fun while doing a different kind of water sport. It doesn't matter if you've never tried it; you'll find qualified, patient instructors who will get you started with the best technique.
