Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico
We found our beachIf you get sick of the all-inclusive, overdeveloped aspects of the Mayan Riviera, be sure to check out Playa Maya. Just a few minutes south of Tulum is the relatively undeveloped beauty of a beach lover's dream. We paid a few dollars for a boat ride to get a panoramic view of Tulum from the water, and followed that up with snorkeling on the reef. The incredible light blue water is flanked by bohemian hotels and cafes. Try the catch of the day at Zamas. You will thank yourself. When we return to the region, we will be relaxing here.
