Playa del Carmen Cruise

Cruise to Playa del Carmen, Mexico | MSC Cruises

The gate to Riviera Maya

During your MSC cruise to the Caribbean, Cuba and Antilles, you will get the chance to decide for yourself weather Playa del Carmen has the potential to become Mexico’s Miami Beach.

Playa, as it is called by the locals, is a vibrant city: the biggest city of Riviera Maya, a long tract of the Mexican coast facing the Caribbean Sea. 
Here, the city life is concentrated along La Quinta Avenida, a long street closed to traffic lined with colourful shops and inviting bars and restaurants. This street is located a short distance from where your ship will dock and is Playa del Carmen’s main attraction. Naturally, the city has its own small beach: if you wish to take a bath, just follow the coast towards Cancun. 
However, every MSC Cruises Mexico holiday should include a visit to the Mayan ruins, which have made the Yucatan world-famous. Excursions from Playa del Carmen include unique opportunities to visit the cities of Chacchoben and Kohunlich. Discovered by archaeologists just forty years ago, Chacchoben is still little known (most of its buildings are waiting to be unearthed). Inhabited
