Went for the afternoon with my boyfriend after a fishing trip. We brought fresh fish with us and the little restaurant there cooked it up for us for a fee. It was delicious! Then we napped on the beach under the sunshades. It was beautiful and relaxing! Don't forget, if you spend over certain amount of money give the receipt... More

I have come to Xpu Ha for many years. It is soothing, free spirit kind of place...they let you in with your car for like $6usd give or take, depending on the exchange rate and you are there for a treat, to be in contact with nature and a beautiful beach. You need to bring with you all beachwear possible:... More

We spent a day here in January and had an amazing time. We took a cab from Puerto Aventuras that dropped us off at the gate where we had to pay the admission fee. It was then a walk along a dirt road to finally get to the beach. We brought our own umbrella and set it up on the... More

Little slice of heaven along the waters edge. Beautiful bay to walk, spend the afternoon, and if it's calmer, to snorkel. I found the beach bar very expensive, but you can bring your own chairs and a cooler!

Beautiful white sand. Crystal clear water. Beautiful ocean colors. What more do you want? Yes it can be hard to find but every taxi driver knows where it is. Yes you will pay to get in but you will get it back if you spend money there. Yes some places will charge for chairs etc. but if you eat/drink there... More

This is a beautiful beach with a restaurant and bar and shops available. You can rent watercraft including jetskis. Lots of people snorkel and there are plenty of fish and other marine life to see. One of the prettiest beaches we've seen, and we've been all over the caribbean.

My family and I swam and kayaked here on a rough water day, so couldn't go out to the reefs in the glass bottom kayaks :( next time ;) There is plenty of parking, restaurants on the beach, a couple small hotels on the beach and so much sand! Some areas of the beach were crowded, some deserted. After you... More

It's probably good it's hard to find. No clear entrances. We only found a tiny sign. Walked down a long road only to get 'toll both' charged for 30pesos by a bunch of men laying around with a rope running across the road that they would pull to prevent people entering... I think we found the wrong entrance. Beach was... More

I used to like and work in Playa Del Carmen some 20 years ago, I am currently in Playa at this moment (Jan 17th, 2015) and am completely shocked by the utter commercialization and party vibe of what was once a laid back beach town. All this to say is, I wanted out of Playa and to find the special... More
