Punta Allen is a small fishing village located just south of Tulum in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere. This village is truly an off-the-beaten-path destination, a hidden gem of the Riviera Maya. With only a handful of bungalow style hotels, most of which double as guided fishing tour operations, the area is a premier location for fly fishing and bird watching. In a world where it can feel increasingly hard to truly escape and get off the grid, Punta Allen offers an idyllic escape. If you are in search of a true barefoot beach vacation, in a quiet town by the sea, you should head to Punta Allen.
