Playa del Carmen can get pretty hot in summer, with temperatures around 90ºF / 32ºC and 85 percent humidity. But don’t worry, here are some cool ways to beat the heat and spend a wonderful summer vacation here in paradise.
Are you wrapped up in a thick winter jacket and still freezing? Do you need summer? Why not escape the cold weather to Playa del Carmen where it’s summer time all year!
Sure, some people love winter – short days, snow, skiing… But others aren’t big fans of shoveling snow and scraping ice, and can’t wait for summer to be back already. To each their own. But for all the sun lovers out there, why wait, if you could as well get on a plane with destination to Cancun? Come to Playa del Carmen, where white sandy beaches await you, the crystal clear Caribbean Sea, delicious Mexican food, and of course all of us at Hotel Playa Palms.
The vitamin D deprived among you might just want to relax at our beach club, being spoiled with drinks and snacks by our waiters Daniel and Francisco. But there is more to do in Playa del Carmen than just getting a tan and sipping Margaritas.
Of course there are plenty of excursions to explore the Mayan world and get your amount of Mexican culture. Chichen Itza, Xcaret, Tulúm, cenotes… to only mention a few. But we don’t want to bore you with the same suggestions again and again.
How about a real adventure that gets your adrenalin pumping? Every winter, between November and March, bull sharks are returning to the shallow waters in front of Playa del Carmen’s coast, attracting dauntless divers from all over the world. Arrange your tete-a-tete with a bull shark with the famous Phantom Divers, or ask Carlos, our concierge, for more information.
Maybe diving with formidable creatures isn’t your thing. Is running in a fun environment? If so, we suggest participating in the Paint & Run 5k Playa del Carmen. The 5 kilometer run is less about winning or performance, but more about having a great time. Each kilometer the runners are doused into a different color, with a cloud of colors awaiting you on the finish line and a big party. The Paint & Run 5k Playa del Carmen is held on Sunday, March 6, 2016, starting at 8 am at the Plaza 28 de Julio.
However you like to enjoy your winter escape, we are waiting or you at Hotel Playa Palms.
