Quality time with your mom
It is your holiday and you probably want to dedicate at least one day solely to relaxing and dolce far niente. Start the day with a delicious breakfast. At Playa Palms Beach Hotel this comes with a view! We serve breakfast every morning to your room, for you to enjoy it on your balcony with an ocean view. Is there any better way to start the day? Furthermore, our guests enjoy an exclusive discount on the breakfast buffet of the neighboring Indigo Beach. The perfect place if you are looking for a more hearty breakfast while digging your toes in the sand.
After that, how about a massage at the beach? At Playa Palms Beach Hotel you can book a massage at your hotel room or simply get one at the beach next door, with professional massage therapists.
Activities you and your mom will enjoy most together at Mother’s Day
Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya not only have gorgeous beaches, but also beautiful lagoons, the world’s second biggest coral reef, and many cenotes. Especially the cenotes are unique to the Yucatan Peninsula. In other words, you have arrived in paradise if you like snorkeling or scuba diving. One of the most beautiful lagoons is Yal-Ku. In its calm and clear waters, you can spot parrotfishes, rays, barracudas and many more. The nearby town Akumal is famous for its sea turtles. Or head over to the island Cozumel and explore the coral reef! If you want to visit a cenote, we recommend Chaak-Tun. It’s completely underground and makes for an adventure of its own.
If you are culturally interested, we suggest you visit an archaeological site. There are many of them close to Playa del Carmen. If you are looking for a breathtaking scenery and want to make a beach day out of it, visit the Tulum ruins. It’s the only ancient Mayan city built on the coast, and its views over the Caribbean Sea are truly unique. The beach on its feet ranks among the most beautiful worldwide.
Chichen Itza makes for a day trip, but it is worth every second. You will leave with a great respect for the mathematics and scientific accomplishments of the Mayan civilization. There is a reason why this site is one of the Seven World Wonders!
How to travel with your mom
You and your mom might not be the perfect travel buddies and maybe have different expectations of vacations. Make sure you know what each of you wants so you can find stuff to do that you both enjoy. However, it’s not necessary that you spend every second together. Besides of enjoying your time together, you sometimes need space and time. It’s absolutely ok to do activities on your own now and there. Maybe you really enjoy adrenaline-pumping ATV rides while your mom prefers to read a book at the beach. So why don’t you go and have fun in the morning, while she relaxes at Playa Palms Beach Hotel‘s beach and you guys meet up later for lunch? This way everybody gets the best out of your Playa del Carmen vacation.
Whatever you and your mom choose to do for Mother’s Day in Playa del Carmen, you sure will create great memories together! We are happy to help you with anything you might need before and during your stay with us. Feel free to contact us at any time.
