Tulum town itself is not much to write home about but its beaches are spectacular--I think they're the best in the Riviera Maya.

Puerto Morelos is kinda like what the Big Island is to hawaii. It is touristy enough to draw visitors, but it remains small and quaint enough that it has not become a spring break destination. The town is entertaining at night and the beaches are great 24 hours a day.

The Reserve is considered one of the world’s top fly fishing destinations, and most visitors here are anglers. But Sian Ka’an ...

Small Mayan fishing community at the end of the Boca Paila Rd. Head to the beach from 307 at Tulum and turn right for an adventure you will never forget! Great food, fresh? You know it, langostina y pesca caught moments before being served to you on the beach. Fabulous tours available for sight seeing or fishing all run thru ...
