Half way from Tulum to Punta Allen this is the drivable part of the peninsula. The beaches are beautiful. The hotels are all small boutique like with a sixties feel.

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...More
