When the BPM festival is going on in Playa del Carmen, the city can be a chaos, depending on what you like… So here we’ll share some things you can do while the festival is going on…
You could visit the archaeological site of Tulum, this beautiful mayan site is located about 1 hr from Playa del Carmen and is right on the beach. You could probably spend about 2 hrs going around the archaeological site and then you could go to Tulum town and beach. During the high season for tourism, Tulum can be a little crowded since it has become really famous. The beaches in Tulum are amazing since they are really wide and the sand is really white.
Xcacel is a small beach in a bay in the Riviera Maya close to Tulum and Xel Ha… the entrance to this beach is a little hidden and this is made in purpose so not a lot of people comes here… Xcacel is a protected beach where the turtles come to put their eggs in the sand and there are times during the year you have to be careful during the day to not step on turtles nest and at night you don’t have access. The beach is beautiful and quiet, you can walk for miles and you will see the beach is virgin…
Akumal is really great to spend the day relaxing, since there is not much to do. You can go and stay at a beach club or just go by yourself to the beach. Akumal has a beautiful little bay and a cenote near by where you can snorkel and we are pretty sure you’ll be able to see a turtle and lots of fish.
Well, Puerto Morelos is a small jewell in the middle of the Riviera Maya. Puerto Morelos is a little caribbean town located in between Playa del Carmen and Cancun. It used to be a fishermen town but now it’s mostly touristic, fishing is still something going on though.
Puerto Morelos is great to spend the day at the beach, it’s really calm and you can go by yourself or go to a beach club. In Puerto Morelos you’ll find different bars and restaurants that will mainly serve seafood but you can find different options too.
In Puerto Morelos, there is the cenotes route “La Ruta de los Cenotes” which is a road that goes into the jungle where you’ll find lots of cenotes, these cenotes are like “sink-holes” where you can jump and have a swim, these are natural and made up of really cool/fresh water. This option is something really nice to get rid of the heat of the caribbean.
