Think of stunning beach and here it is. Great snorkelling and super surroundings. We saw rays and turtles here. The reef was quite a way out, good if you're a strong swimmer but you can rent life jackets at the end of the beach.

Liked everything - you could just swim with dolphins, stingrays, manatees which all cost extra or you could just laze around and swim through the lagoons dropping in to the various restaurants and bars which is included in the price

Excellent place but you need to get taxi. Make sure you have a ride back! If you don't, they will call the taxi for you.

All I can say is pictures do not do this beach justice. When you see dream vacations to beaches, this is what you expect. Xpu Ha is widely considered one of the best in the world and when you get there you'll see why!

The restaurant is not fancy, but it is fun and the food is pretty decent. Try the ceviche. They sometimes have live music and it just adds to the experience.

Loved the peace and quiet, the warm sea and the beautiful fine sand. This is an ideal place to while away a few hours with a good book and a long drink.

Seems like one of the excursions that is often pre scheduled - So Palace Resort Membership does not guarantee you will get scheduled!
