MEXICO BEACHES

Mexico’s coastline is simply outstanding. The whole of the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula is lined with picture perfect powder white sand, making it one of the most popular beach destinations in Latin America. On top of this there are numerous top class hotels, all of which are located directly on the beach.
The most popular areas are Cancun and Playa del Carmen, however these are both large towns that are often noisy and overcrowded. We have found a selection of places that are away from these towns and are positioned on the best parts of the Riviera Maya.

Just a short distance away from the coast is a diverse mix of activities to keep even the most active person satisfied. The coral reef is a short 10 minute boat ride away, a place where a unique underwater world is waiting to be discovered. Inland are Mayan ruins, local markets, caves and even water parks where you can swim with dolphins

BEST MEXICAN BEACHES

There are so many places within the Yucatan Peninsula to ‘hit the beach’, but below are our favourite places. some are chosen due to their remoteness, other because of their sheer beauty!

Holbox Island

Located to the northwest of Cancun, Holbox Island is separated from the mainland coast of Mexico by a shallow lagoon, which gives sanctuary to thousands of flamingos, pelicans and other exotic birds and creatures.

Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya boasts some of the best beaches in Central America with hundreds of miles of wide beaches and inviting shallow turquoise waters. The soft, powder sand is a brilliant white and the clarity of vision in the warm and clear Caribbean is superb. 

Tulum

The setting of Tulum is simply stunning with a compact group of Maya-Toltec temples perched on coastal cliffs above the turquoise Caribbean Sea.  Tulum was built in the 12thcentury and these were troubled times in the Mayan world as reflected by its defensive wall and watchtower, rare in other sites.  Despite the beautiful sunrises from here, each doorway faces west and the site is dedicated to the worship of the Falling God or Setting Sun.
