Default playa del carmen - cancun

The wife, kids, and I are heading down to Playa del Carmen for Christmas. Staying in the Riu Yucatan resort. Looking for some ideas from anyone who has been down there. Want to take 1 or 2 excursions. Any recommendations are appreciated, not just on excursions, but shopping, snorkeling, etc in general.

Thanks!

Haven't been down there in years, but we took a trip to Xcaret and Tulum. Xcaret was nice, they have dolphin swimming, and an underground river you can snorkel through.

When you go into town you'll be approached by people selling stuff. If you aren't interested just smile and say "No, gracias". That was the biggest annoyance for me in all of the places I've visited in Mexico. The markets are really fun & interesting to visit and they expect you to bargain prices of items.

I'll be sure to do that. Actually my wife is from Cali Colombia. Have been there many times, so I am accustomed to security issues. What makes it worse is I am tall and blonde, don't really blend in to say the least. But I don't expect that part of Mexico to be dangerous.
