bout 45min. ride from Playa Del Carmen lies probably the youngest but also one of the most beautiful Maya towns – Tulum. But what really makes this town so special is it’s location. Tulum stands on, almost vertical, cliffs overseeing the mesmerizing turquoise Caribbean Sea. As it directly faces the east it’s obvious why Tulum was once known as the “City of dawn”. The town isn’t so big and you can pass through it in a short amount of time.
bout an hour drive down south from Cancun lies Playa Del Carmen. Playa is quite similar to Cancun along with the intense presence of tourists but this town definitely had a bit more “chilled” vibe to it. The beach in Playa is almost the same as the one in Cancun but the good thing about this beach is that it has much calmer Caribbean sea compared to the cities in northern Quintana Roo.
