Cancun and Playa del Carmen are well known for their beautiful beaches and big resorts. But this incredible destination is much more than just big parties and landscapes. Here is a list of 6 Night activities in Riviera Maya that you probably didn’t know about and will definitely fall in love with.

1.- Fly in a zip-line

The favorite Park for those seeking for night activities in Riviera Maya. Since it’s the only place in the destination where you can zip-line at night. Can you imagine watching the stars while you fly 19 mi/hr? At Xplor Fuego is not only possible, but you’ll also enjoy other activities like swimming in an underground river, rafting and driving amphibious vehicles.

2.- Go shopping 

One of the cool things about living in the Riviera Maya (besides having a sunny weather all year long) is that shops and attractions stay open late. The perfect example is Playa Del Carmen’s 5th Avenue, a place where you can go shopping almost at any hour. Having a fashion crisis at 10:00 pm? Don’t worry, you will find somewhere to shop in here.
