My friend and I are both in our mid-twenties and planning a trip for this winter-- January or Feb.
I've spent time in Puerto Vallarta and Zihua and am looking forward to seeing the Caribbean side of the country.
We are both interested in going out (dancing, etc) but not necessarily party-animals. We're very interested in local art, shopping, etc and won't want to just park ourselves on a beach for one week. That said, we do want to stay on the beach with easy access to ocean swimming.
Can you recommend the best spot? Town or hotel in mind? I am leaning towards Tulum based on the hotels that I'm seeing, but am curious if it's maybe too quiet?
Thank you for feedback!
