Default Any experience with Playa del Carmen/Cancun?

I will be heading to Playa Del Carmen, Cancun for a wedding in mid-June. I will not have money for the local guides (~$400 full day), but I will be taking an 11wt saltwater setup (may be too heavy, but I'd rather be ready for whatever!)

Supposedly kayaks are available at the resort, and I presume that some exploring for flats or mangroves can be done. I found one site that says that "bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, snapper, barracuda, and jacks" can be found.
Of course I will just be poking around hoping to find something on my own...

Any ideas about places to hunt?
Should I just shore fish outside the resort?
Good flies to tie for the area?

Wish I had the money for a guide, but the whole trip is a stretch.
Thanks in advance!
TB
