FREE Kids Activities in Playa del Carmen

One of the main reasons we love living in Playa del Carmen is the strong sense of community. Not only is this city a gorgeous beach destination for tourists, it's also a family-friendly town for locals with a strong focus on Mexican culture and the environment. If you know where to look, you'll find fun and unique activities for kids every single week ... and most of them are free! Below is a list of some of our very favorite free kids activities in Playa del Carmen:

Parque La Ceiba
Calle 1 Sur and Diagonal 60 in Colonia Edijal



This large park provides a natural escape from the surrounding city where local Playa del Carmen families can find all kinds of free activities. The biggest attraction is the Saturday Tianguis on the third Saturday of every month, with a day of workshops, book readings, crafts, games and more. The park also has eco activities for kids, a small playground, and an on-site kitchen with local cuisine. To find out about what kids events they have coming up, follow Parque La Ceiba on Facebook or call (984)859-2327.

Almost all of the shows are free of charge. Follow Teatro de la Ciudad on Facebook to see what shows they have in the upcoming weeks.


The Playground at Parque Fundadores
Avenida Benito Juarez between 5th Avenue and the beach



Fun with an ocean view! This pirate ship-themed playground is located right by the beach in Playa del Carmen's iconic Fundadores Park. It's an especially beautiful place to go around sunset, when families congregate around the beach area to enjoy the breeze and the view.
