PDC (Playa) is an amazing area filled with small businesses and restuarnts up and down 5th Avenue. Additionally there are great areas of beach and bars like Senior Frogs on the waterfront in which to enjoy some downtime.
I visit PDC every year for a week and know the area fairlly well now after 5-6 visits and absolutely love it here. For those with the time and a sense of adventure, you could hail a taxi cab to Xcaret - a eco park filled with animals, fauna, beaches, water actitivies and history. http://www.xcaret.com/
. Other nearby areas include Puerto Adventuras where deep sea fishing can be arranged.
No matter what you opt for, the Riveria Maya section of Mexico has it - it is a wonderful area with wonderful folks!!!
