My wife and I went to Playa del Carmen January 05 and took a taxi to Tres Rios. Didn't really know what to expect, didn't get the all inclusive package, which probably would have been better idea, horse riding, scuba etc. We got the bikes and rode to the beach, great fun, especially as the bikes haven't normal brakes!! They're the old type, pedal backwards. We then canoed up a fresh water river, the water was 3-4m deep and sparkingly clear. As my wife can't swim she was a bit apprehensive of the ocean kayaking (although lifejackets were supplied and advisable for all the activities) but she gave it a go anyway - both knackering and great craic (fun). We paddled through the surf to a magrove swamp, our guide warned us to be quiet as we may see or disturb the gators!! After all the exersion we chilled and lay in the hammocks by the ocean. Lunch was pretty good. As you've paid in for the day you can have several goes at the same things (I'm not sure if this is the same for All Inc extras). We then returned to taxi point by bike, specifically chosing the tandem - soooo difficult, but great fun. Would love to go back some day, especially with kids.We took a camera and locked it in the lockers when not used, but should really have taken the camcorder. It is so peaceful and uncrowded. One of the most beautiful places we've been and definitely one of the highlights of our trip, which also included New York and Las Vegas. Even if you have to travel for a while this wonderful place should not be missed.
