Playa Del Carmen Jet Ski Rental
…like renting a scooter and driving it on the sea…
Sounds perfect right?
But for some reason people who rent jet skis have a bit of a bad reputation.
It’s all down to those few yuppie kids who fly around trying to show off.
Ignore those spring break idiots.
I’ve been jet skiing many times in Playa Del Carmen and not once has it helped me pull a lady on the beach.
There’s far more to jet skiing in Playa Del Carmen than a quick acceleration in the ocean.
It’s a great experience for all kinds of different reasons.
Not the least for the fact that you’re driving your own vehicle across the Caribbean.
So, Why Is Jet Skiing So Good In Playa Del Carmen?
Great if you want to embarrass yourself in front of a beach full of bikinis.
But a bit one dimensional.
In Playa del Carmen you can rent a jet ski and zoom along the whole beach.
Turquoise water, white sand, and pure acceleration: what more do you need?
Well, listen to this.
In Playa Del Carmen there are whole jet ski tours that take you to hidden destinations.
Stop and snorkel along beautiful coral reefs, swim with sea turtles, and ride out to spectacular expanses of open beach.
Try a tour that rides out all the way to Playa Norte – that’s north beach for those who haven’t mastered their Spanish.
Jet skiing combines the natural beauty of the ocean with the rush of driving really fast.
What Are The Different Jet Skiing Options In Playa Del Carmen?
When you’re enjoying the beach and thinking about renting a jet ski, you’ve got two different options.
- For a quick ride it’s possible to rent a jet ski for 30 minutes. Jump on, accelerate away, and get a bit of a thrill in the ocean.
- Those who want to explore can go on a jet ski ride and then snorkeling afterward. I really recommend it. These combined tours take 1.5 to 2 hours and give you the opportunity to both ride a jet ski and also go snorkeling. It can take you out to the places that few other tourists see. Last time I went on such a tour, I jet skied for 30 minutes and then went snorkeling where I got to swimming with sea turtles and also saw an eagle ray. Amazing! (As well as hundreds of tropical fish.)
Okay, You’ve Got Me Excited. Tell Me The Where And The How
It’s usually best to ask if you want to know more information.
RENTING A JET SKI AND NOTHING MORE
Jet skis can also be rented out individually in blocks of 30 minutes.
In peak season it is ~$75-80+ USD for 30 minutes. If you want to rent longer than 30 minutes, prices become negotiable.
But in off season, when negotiating in Spanish, sometimes you can get one for lower.
COMBINING A JET SKI RENTAL WITH ANOTHER ACTIVITY
If you want to combine several activities at once, try the jet ski rental and the snorkeling.
You’re already wet. You already have sand in hard-to-get places. You’re already pumped up about being out in the sun on a beautiful day.

TALK TO CAESAR (or Erika), the Jet Ski GO-TO Guys
There was a day that I woke up with some motivation.
To make a long story short, a visitor had contacted me regarding suggestions about where to rent a jet ski.
To be completely frank, it is not difficult to find some greedy parasite out there selling jet ski tours; however, it is difficult to find someone who will treat you how you deserve to be treated (and like all tourists should be treated).
Let’s face it, this city, this website, and the tens of thousands of jobs that exist here are all dependent on tourists like you.
Because of this dependent relationship, I strongly believe that all tourists here should be treated well.
Consequently, I don’t recommend individual people unless I truly trust their judgment.
I relentlessly probed “third guy” about his moral integrity with questions like this:
“You’re not one of those short-sited, parasitical, jerk-off, wannabe tour salesman who try to steal, corrupt, ripoff, and cheat tourists, are you?”
After a short interview, I found out this guy was the real deal – a tour seller who wanted to see his customers have fun (with the hope that they would come back and recommend him to their friends).
I decided to add him to my website.
So, without more ado, let me introduce you to Caesar.
First of all, Caesar is a pretty cool guy.
Because you’re reading this, you likely read/speak English, so you can rest assured that Caesar’s English is very proficient.
He lived in the United States for a number of years where he was a mover.
After coming to Playa Del Carmen on what was supposed to be a short vacation, he ended up staying here permanently.
He’s been living here now for around 5 years and has been a tour provider for the entire time.
As you might have guessed, with five years of experience, he knows a lot about all the different activities in the Riviera Maya and close to this area.
Thus, if you have any questions for him, don’t hesitate to ask him.

Is Jet Skiing Safe?
These people shouldn’t rent a jet ski.
Of course a powerful sea vehicle can be dangerous.
But that’s usually only when people get carried away or don’t know what they’re doing.
There are some basic rules.
You might think it’s cool to zoom over to the tasty girl whose swimming in the ocean.
Never go near swimmers when on a jet ski.
A jet ski has no brakes so fooling around near people is a recipe for getting sued.
There’s all kinds of information about what to do if you capsize or fall off the jet ski.
But don’t listen to me.
Make sure you get a full safety brief when you rent the jet ski.
What Else Do I Need To Know Before Getting A Jet Ski?
If you’re thinking of bringing on a buddy or girl on the back of your jet ski, then remember one thing:
Make sure s/he is holding on BEFORE you accelerate.
The girl won’t be impressed if you zoom off and leave her in the ocean.
Life jackets are also pretty important, particularly if you’re one of those NASCAR impersonators.
And remember some good sunscreen.
Otherwise the hour on a jet ski is going to leave you with some embarrassing tan lines.
Did you get all that?
Get down to the beach and set off exploring!
See you there soon…
