Day Trip: Tulum, Coba, Playa Del Carmen and Cenote Swim from Cancun

28 reviews
Visit two of the most important Maya archaeological sites on this full-day tour: Coba and Tulum. Admire the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea while exploring the temples and pyramids of Tulum with a certified guide, then head to Coba to climb to the top of Nohoch Muul—the tallest pyramid on the Yucatán Peninsula. In the afternoon, take a swim in a 'cenote' (underground cave), sit down for a traditional Mexican lunch, and explore the city of Playa del Carmen. Round-trip transport is included.

And not just great art, a wonderful proprietor! We had the best time talking with him. He is clearly passionate about his gallery. Alex is an artist himself and recognizes quality when he sees it. We hope to continue doing business with him in the future.

Beautiful gallery with all handmade pieces. Wonderful owner willing to take the time to explain the pieces and a bit of the culture. Such a great place. Not your basic tourist items. Hand made collectables. A great stop.

Today we had the pleasure of shopping for arts and crafts and went to the Guelaguetza Gallery. This friendly family owned gallery sells authentic Mexican made art by local artisans, each with their own story. We were especially delighted with a piece we purchased to represent our 37th wedding anniversary and trip to Mexico. We had an enlightening chat and visit with Alex who shared about his family and the products in the stores. Everything we purchased was very well wrapped for travel. The only regret was not being able to take more home ! Go and enjoy - its so worth the trip to enjoy the real art of Mexico.

This new store at the new end of Quinta Avenida is run by a family from the interior of Mexico who have brought a huge assortment of home furnishings and decorations to Playa del Carmen—one of the best selections of authentic Mexican artwork and furniture anywhere here! I had walked past the store dozens of times without ever stopping in, but when it came time to look for a lamp for my living room, I’d remembered what a cool selection of them they had. There is a ton of Talavera, the blue ceramics, and many pieces of the hand-blown glasswork, but as well several sizes and types of tables and frames and artwork and collectibles and trinkets galore—truly a great selection! Of course it’s probably better for those of us who live here than for tourists—we don’t have to worry so much about fitting things in suitcases(!)—but there are still plenty of small options available!

We recently visited Playa Del Carmen and were looking for some items to bring home to remind us of our trip as well as pick up a Christmas gift for a family member. We had almost given up hope of finding something outside the typical tourist shop when we encountered the gallery. What wonderful items at what great prices! We found a few things to bring home but were unable to find what we were looking for as a Christmas gift. Alex, the owner, was extremely helpful to the point of calling another store (ok, it was owned by his mother) to see if they had what we were looking for. It was really above and beyond customer service. I will definitely shop here again when I next visit Playa!
