Life’s a Beach | Expat Life in Playa del Carmen : Playa del Carmen Summer Camps 2014


Once again, we are putting together a listing of camps and programs (cursos de verano) for children in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya for the summer of 2014. These are the programs and summer camps that we have found so far for kids living in Playa del Carmen and all across the Mayan Riviera. There are some exciting new programs this year for children of all ages, both day programs and sleep over camps. Whether your children are interested in sports, nature, the arts or even a traditional sleep-over camp experience, there are a variety of options to choose from. I have not yet heard back from all of the organizations who I have
reached out and I will update the list and re-post the link to the blog
on the BuyPlaya Facebook page as new offerings come in. If you know of any summer camp options that we do not have listed, please feel free to send me the info at [email protected]
