This is our favorite beach in Mexico. Its beautiful white sand, turquoise water, and sloping palms are postcard perfect! There are services available, including chairs, umbrellas, showers and food service, but you can also just throw down a blanket under a tree and enjoy.

What can I say, It´s the Caribbean sea, and a great place to spend the afternoon. A miles away Tulum you will find a kind of little restaurants down the palms with good service of food and drinks.

We were staying at the Iberostar in Playacar but heard from another couple at dinner that this beach was amazing so we decided to visit. It is listed in some guide books as the “best local beach in all of Mexico.” Other reviewers have told you how to get there by bus and taxi but we had our own rental... More

By far the most beautiful that we have ever been on. Soft white sands fringed by palm trees lead to a crystal clear turquoise sea. Our organised day trip included an hour stop at this piece of paradise and we could have stayed all day! The sea was wonderful to swim in.

Beautiful crystal clear water, bath like the Mayans did. You can rent a bike and go from beach to beach that are separated just a few minutes away from each other

Our speaker was completely knowledgeable in this area and had a lot of passion his his history. It was a hot day , I recommend taking a small bag with water and sunscreen, and your swim suits for hitting... More

An amazing white sandy beach, slanted palm trees and clear azure water, close to the Mayan ruins of Tulum. The beach is huge and there is a lot to do. For example a boat trip to see turtles, a simple walk along the beach... There are many bars along the beach, you can have a drink, ice cream and you... More

The beach is indeed nice with nice water temperatures, white sand and interesting coconut trees. The service on the other hand is terrible. You are met with unfriendly faces for the chair service and the towels take forever to get there. Wifi service is 20 pesos and the person wants to have your phone so they can input the password!...

Decided to travel for a few hours to Playa Paraiso, it will not disappoint you. The Travel was by ADO bus which is cheap and safe and once we get to Tulum you have to catch a taxi. Make sure you take towels, water, snacks and anything you might need because you will have to rent it or buy it... More
