One of the beautiful things to do when living in Playa del Carmen or staying here on your summer vacation, is to go and visit Xpu Ha. The Riviera Maya receives Millions of tourist since many years, so there is hardly any secret spot, where the locals go on their free time, but Xpu Ha is the closest it gets if you look for a hidden paradise.
Just imagine the most amazing beach with the most unbelievable tones of blue and turquoise in the caribbean waters, a few really simple beach clubs, good ceviche, a metal bucket with lots of ice and cold corona beer, only a few tourist and a lot of sun and blue sky. Actually, just check out this picture, than you know what i am talking about.
Xpu Ha is just 10 miles south of Playa del Carmen and there are only small, almost hidden access roads towards the beach.
You will have to pay a small fee to enter the properties and drive down a dirt road until you get to the beach club, there are actually 2-3 of them to choose. The same bay has small boutique hotels like El Cielo and Esencia, where travelers from all over the world enjoy the relaxed and private atmosphere. O r just click on the picture.
One of the bets things to do there is to rent a snorkel equipment and swim out just a 100 meter to one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the Riviera Maya. You will find amazing underwater landscapes and a wide array of different fishes in all colors you can imagine. Very untouched and even better if you like to explore a bit more, there is a ecopark close by where you can snorkel in a lagoon as well.
There is actually no real estate available for sale in this particular area, but actually, that is a good thing, considering, the beauty and remoteness of this secret location 🙂
