Where to go? What to do?

We will be in Playa del Carmen from 8-5 on a cruise stop. We love to snorkel, lay on the beach, have cocktails and are always up for shopping and site seeing; so basically anything! Where should we spend our day where we may get all of this or at least have options near by?

You may want to take a tour and see the very beautiful Mayan ruins of Tulum that are the nearest Mayan ruins to see. There is a beautiful beach there where you can also go swimming, but I don't recall any snorkeling there. You may also want to check out the town of Playa del Carmen for some shopping.

There is a website promoting Playa Del Carmen and what to do. Just search Playa and it should come up. There is an ATV trip and a Catamaran trip but I think you may miss them, altho they start around 9am. There used to be some beautiful beaches for snorkeling but the hotels may have taken all of them! You can also take the ferry to Cozumel from Playa. Good luck.
