Remote and special. A world heritage UNESCO site. In a world with species disappearing daily this is worth a visit. Don't take one of those stupid jeep tours.

Beautiful area. Nice area. Good day fishing trip in the mangroves. It would be a great off the grid area to stay. Victor at Boca Paila will put you on the fish.

I will come back here. At the moment, tons of algae has affected the water colour and shores, but I can envision past that. Not cheap, but everything you could want. Quiet beach, lots of restaurants, and a 15-minute bike ride from action and great prices in Tulum Centro.

This area had a lot of character, great shops & restaurants. The accommodations were way too pricey for what they offered. Perhaps it would be more worthwhile if the oceans weren't full of seaweed seeing as most of the accommodations were oceanfront, but most had no AC; and it's hot here!

It was a shame about the seaweed. It tended to make the beach a bit smelly. Tulum beach has always been beautiful but I think perhaps its time to put a stop to the building of more hotels on this strip. The shops are great and not as expensive as some of the tourist shops in other places, however the... More

The rough road to Boca Paila and the pristine beaches along this stretch of coast still take my breath away after 25 years of exploring the remote white sand beaches of Qunitana Roo heading south to Boca Paila. If you park at the Boca Paila bridge and take the path along the north side the mangrove from the outlet you... More

far away from the norm, rugged and undeveloped, rough road, seeing more and more group tours that are pounding out the potholes, and taking up space on the bridge for a short time. make sure you are not behind one of these caravan groups cause it will be extremely dusty and frustrating. still one of the wonders of the mayan,...

If you wanna go off the beaten path and get away from it all Boa Paila is the place to go. Miles of empty beaches with only the waves and wind in the trees
