Playa del Carmen offers gay and gay-friendly bars, spas for men, gay-friendly restaurants and a lot of shopping. Adonis guests receive discounts in several shops and beach clubs in this destination. We also organize special “discovering Playa del Carmen shopping and night life” tours for Adonis guests.
We will visit Chichen Itza, one of the new “New Seven World Wonders”. This 1000-year-old Mayan city lays in the center of the peninsula about a two-hour drive from the hotel. Our gay guide will explain all of the interesting places inside this once powerful Mayan city. On our way to and from Chichen Itza, we will pass several small Mayan villages and the colonial city of Valladolid, where we will make a small stop in the city center. Private transport, water and sodas, entries fees to the visiting places, a gay guide and lunch are included in the tour.
Coba Punta Laguna
Guided by a gay guide, we will visit the archeological side of Coba. You will be able to climb the highest pyramid of the Mayans in Yucatan, which is almost totally covered by the tropical Yucatan rainforest. We will use the typical village transport, “las tricis”, to bring you back from the Nohoch Mul Pyramid to the entrance. From Coba we will go to a cave-style cenote were you can swim and refresh in the crystal clear waters from the underground rivers. Lunch, featuring typical Yucatan dishes, will be served in the small Mayan village of Coba. Afterwards, we will go to the small community of Punta Laguna just 50 km (40 miles) away. We will visit a Mayan family in the village. Near Punta Laguna is a small national park where we will find spider and howler monkeys. With local guides we will search for the monkeys in the partly virgin rainforest. Private transport, waters and sodas, entry fee, lunch, and visits to the cenote and Punta Laguna are included.
The Museum Subacuático, MUSA
The Museum Subacuatico de Arte (MUSA) is an unique underwater project between Cancun and Isla Mujeres, where a “Silent Evolution” is taking place. More than 400 beautiful sculptures from the great artist Jason DeCaires Taylor have been placed on the ocean floor (at a depth between three and six meters) keeping the fish and visitors happy. The idea is that over the years other artists will be invited to add their sculptures to assist in the continuing growth of the Silent Evolution.
The Silent Evolution will take place when the sculptures, all designed and constructed from special materials, become an artificial reef. The appearance of the sculptures will change over time as the coral grows and marine life colonizes the structures in a never-ending evolution.
This area provides an unique snorkeling experience while enjoying the view of Cancun. You will have one hour to snorkel and enjoy the reefs and underwater sculptures in this unique museum, then we will visit the Crococun, a local non-profit rescue park for the local fauna. Here you’ll enjoy the exotic animals on the Peninsula. Private transport, gay guide, water and soda, boat trip, snorkeling equipment, and entrance fees are all included
We will take a 45-minute drive north towards Playa del Carmen. Here we will have the whole day to enjoy the shopping area around Fifth Avenue, with its restaurants, small boutiques, jewelry stores and department shops. Adonis guests receive discounts at several shops and restaurants. If you want to relax after shopping, you have several nice beach clubs just one block away from the shopping area.
Night Live Tours
The main destination for these tours is the center of Playa del Carmen. Here you will have around six hours to visit the clubs, discos and restaurants. Some of the businesses offer special rates for Adonis guests. Our private transport will take you back to the hotel.
Upon request, we could go to the hotel zone or gay bars in Cancun. This is a greater distance from Tulum, but we could combine this trip with an evening shopping tour followed by a visit to the Cancun night life scene
If there are other places you want to visit, please let us know and we will arrange a tour for you.
