We traveled to Paamul just to see what's there. We found a great little restaurant and bar. This pub had a pool and a quaint little beach, perfect for snorkelling.

We were there just for the beach and how nice it was. Very quiet and relatively clean. This isn't like the big resorts with manicured sand. Just a nice Riviera Maya beach. The restaurant was very nice for a cold brew or a shrimp cocktail....More
