Hi! We're spending about 9 days on the riviera maya in June. After 2 nights near Chichen Itza we're going to spend probably 3 nights in or around Tulum, but then we want to drive further south to really get away from it all. we're looking at Punta Allen and Xcalak--both seem to have the kind of lodging we're looking for so we need to stack up other comparisions:
driving distance/difficulty from Tulum (eventually back to cancun for our flight)/
best beach for swimming?
best beach for snorkeling?
and, if there is good wildlife to see nearby (we will visit Sian Ka'an biosphere earlier)?
we may do a fishing trip, but we may also just explore around, beach it, etc.
any other considerations? recommendations welcome!
