Playa Paraiso

This beach is as pristine as it gets. Grab a sun bed, with parasol for roughly $10. Drinks and food available all day. Try one of the ceviches on the menu. Delicious.

On a side note, Extreme Kite Boarding School is located right next to Playa Paraiso.

How to get to Tulum…

As you head down the main highway, you will see the sign for Tulum Ruins on your left. Keep going about 3 more minutes and you will find a major intersection with stop lights (and a 7/11). Turn left and head down to the bottom. Once at the bottom you’ll hit a fork in the road, but you can  find beach clubs on either side. From Cancun to Tulum it is only 1.5 hours, 45 minutes from Playa del Carmen, and 20 minutes from Akumal. What are you waiting for?

You can get the ADO bus from either Cancun or Playa del Carmen to Tulum. Once out, grab a cab to beach.
