#holidayvacation 3D museum in Playa Del Carmen, the paintings in there are high quality and the vistual effect is great, however the museum is kind of small for the price (30 usd)

#holidayvacation Xcaret park is by far the best amusement park I have visited, it is a bit pricey (over 100 USD) but imho, it's worth it! The park is huge with a lot of things to do, sadly we only spent one day there so we probably only tried half of the thing in there. If you are not tight on budget, you can also book hotel Xcaret to get unlimit pass on all Xcaret parks (Xenses, Xavage etc) #decembertravel

Playa del Carmen is mostly known for its beaches, parties and giant resorts. But there's the whole other side of the city. It's a great hub for independent travelers with many things to do in and around.
