    El Mirador / Playa Delfines

    8 reviews

    The beach was fantastic. I would give the sand SIX stars. The limestone and shell sand is a fine powder, which does NOT get hot even on a blisteringly hot day. It is AMAZING. The water goes from a deep blue to aqua, then turquoise all the way to white foam. The whole family spent hours collecting shells, walking for ...

    Playa Sol

    2 reviews

    Less crowded than Playa Norte, but only a few steps away. Playa Sol is a bit better for the budget concerned, who are willing to sacrifice slightly clearer waters.

    Playa Norte

    6 reviews

    Playa Norte is one of the best kid-friendly beaches in the Riviera Maya. A long strip of white sand on the northern edge of Isla Mujeres, the water deepens so slowly into the turquoise sea, you can wade almost a hundred yards and still be only waist deep. The shallow waters also mean that there are virtually no waves, making ...

    Parque de las Palapas

    2 reviews

    The center of downtown Cancun is this "park"--I put it in quotes because it's not really a big green expanse, just an open plaza with a bandshell and a bunch of food stands set up on one side. It's a great place to go in the evening, especially on weekends, and just hang out and people-watch. Mexican families come and ...

    Cenotes Kukulkan and Chac Mool

    15 reviews

    There are several cenotes (limestone sinkholes filled with fresh water) scattered around the Yucatan, but these two, just outside of Tulum, are some of the most impressive. Swim, snorkel, or scuba dive through the bizarre underground waterways. The contrast between the calm scene at the surface and the twisting stalagmites below is impressive, to say the least. You'll see why ...

    Palancar Reef

    7 reviews

    Allegedly the best place to dive and snorkel on Cozumel. I only say "allegedly" because I didn't go very many other places so can't definitively say "best"--but it was pretty astounding, and I was only snorkeling. It's the kind of undersea life where, if you just float still for a minute and stare, you suddenly realize how everything below you ...

    Tukan Beach

    5 reviews

    There are three beaches in Playa del Carmen proper--Playa Faro, Playa Tukan, and Coco Beach. Generally, they all are well-kempt, with soft sand and clear turquoise waters. They also are within easy walking distance of each other, so really anywhere you stay in Playa, it's easy to access them all. Of the three, Playa Tukan is my favorite. It's located ...

    Ultramar ferry terminal

    6 reviews

    The ferry terminal is currently being redone and looks like it will be quite beautiful once finished! As for now, it is a bit of an inconvenience as the space is unusable during construction, but I suspect on my next visit it will be a much better experience.

    It's like snorkeling in a massive aquarium. Full of amazing fish, and definitely worth doing if you are doing the day trip to Tulum from Cancun. Hell, it's worth it if you only come here.

    Señor Frogs

    23 reviews

    Senor Frogs is a crazy antics show-bar with LOUD music. Not for the meek & mild! Crowd ranged from 20s–60s. Lots of audience participation. A good, safe place to get drunk & disorderly!
