Map of the Riviera Maya

Playa del Carmen is centrally located in the Riviera Maya, as we can see in this map (full version in the guide below). It has Cancun and Puerto Morelos to the North; Tulum and Xcaret to the South, Cozumel to the East, and Chichen Itza to the West. 

Our strong recommendation is: if you’re planning to tour the region, base your activities in Playa. It will help you get everywhere else easily, and it’s a great city!
