Natural Beauty, Great Selfie Spot
Unwind at Parque Fundadores, a small green space near the water. Also called “Founding Fathers Park,” the relaxation destination hosts one of Playa del Carmen’s best selfie destinations: a roughly 52 foot high arch entitled “Portal Maya 2012,” which celebrates the Mayan calendar. The curving architecture frames the sand, the expansive blue sea, and the ever-changing sky.
Eat some ice cream while listening to a live band play. Fruit carts serve up healthy melon and pineapple in a cup, while a children’s playground keeps little ones occupied. Overall, this is a great spot for people watching, lounging, and enjoying an iconic Playa del Carmen locale. Sunrise and sunset should be particularly lovely.
