Sweat it all out in an ancient Mayan steam bath that comes with plenty of physical and spiritual benefits.
The Yucatan Peninsula is home to countless archaeological sites. Many of them close to Playa del Carmen, from modest settings to large and spectacular ancient Mayan cities. And every site has its own captivating history.
One of the biggest draws in Mexico is without a doubt the iconic Chichen Itza, the remains of a big Maya city. Impressive enough as it is, only twice a year you can witness a truly awe-inspiring event.
Playa del Carmen is mostly known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant nightlife, the cosmopolitan 5th Avenue, and the many Mayan ruins along the Riviera and the Peninsula. The word ruins may wrongly imply that the Maya people don’t exist anymore. But fact is, one of the largest groups of modern Maya call this region in Mexico their home. Throughout the changes that came with modernization and tourism, they held on to their unique way of life. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn about the incredible Mayan culture!
