You can easily spend multiple days on this beach: when the sun goes up, grab a surfboard from any surf shop nearby and head for the waves. Grab a drink every now and then from the idyllic restaurants. Read a book, relax, sunbathe, hang out with friends. If your dream is to ride a horse on a beach here it... More

Everything was amazing! The food was delicious and the tourist attractions were very affordable and didn't make us feel like tourist we felt like we belonged there. This is a place I will definitely attend again but this time with family.

This beach is completely worth the bumpy trip! The laid back vibes and excellent surf is great! Lots of good food too! I liked that there were not any people hassling you on the beach to buy things and the beach is not crowded. We didnt really see much garbage and everyone is friendly. It's connected to Playa Carmen and,... More

The title says it all. There's nowhere else in the world I'd rather be. Beautiful stretch of beach, friendly people, and lots of sunshine. I'll be back every chance I can.

Beautiful surfer beach, day and night. Every night all gather for sunset enjoying spontaneous bonfires and music. The Pacific ocean is unbelievably warm, great for playing in the waves.
