Playa del Carmen is one of the most popular tourist locations on the coast of the Riviera Maya, and with this free tour, you can discover its long history!

Free tour of Playa Del Carmen

Our free tour of Playa del Carmen, the epicentre of tourism on the Riviera Maya, begins next to the bus station, on Quinta Avenida. Here you'll see the Park of the Founders, where you'll see the Chapel of Our Lady of Carmen, the most famous Catholic church in the region.

Just around the corner, in next to the very same beach we'll see the "Mayan Gate": a sculptural spectacle, looking out into the Carribean sea, and knods to some of the customs and traditions of the native pre-hispanic population of the Yutacan Peninsula.

The tour then continues, past the Frida Khalo Museum, where the coloured facade will provide inspiration for some anecdotes and unusual stories about the most famous Mexican artist. And having wandered some of the other streets of the historic centre we'll make our way to the Jewish Quarter, to learn more about the history of the community that has made its home in the region.

Before the free tour ends in the centre of Playa del Carmen we'll visit the ruins of an ancient Mayan Temple, whose remains will help us better understand the fascinating society and daily life which came before the Spanish conquest.
