Virgin beaches: hidden sanctuaries for the few who know where to look

If you Google “Mexican beaches”, “Mexican Caribbean”, “best beaches in Mexico” or “Mayan Riviera”, you’ll find pictures of turquoise-sea paradises, beautiful in every way. If you scroll down a little, you’ll see pictures of celebrations, music festivals with the Caribbean as backdrop, and so much more.

But real insiders like us, truly in love with Playa del Carmen, its Caribbean and its people, will tell you that there’s so much more to it than any tour guide can describe.

That’s right.

What you see in pictures is about 20% of what there is in the Mayan Riviera. That’s why we’ve decided to give you a brief glimpse of some of the beaches most tourists never see—beaches that stand out not only because of their unique beauty, but also because of their peace and quiet.


One of sea turtles’ favorite spots, and as such, perfect for nature lovers and conservation enthusiasts. Only 23 miles from Playa del Carmen, this marvelous beach is gorgeous from top to bottom.



This beautiful beach is a bay surrounded by jungle. Ideal for family visits, since it offers plenty of activities, food, fishing and so much more. Only 13 miles south of Tulum, Chemuyil awaits with open arms.


Sian Ka’an

Of course we have to mention one of the state of Quintana Roo’s most famous places. A breathtaking beach everyone should visit: Sian Ka’an is Mayan for “the place where the sky is born,” and that’s no exaggeration: it’s impossible not to lose yourself in this dreamy atmosphere where the blue hues of the water and the sky merge in Earth’s natural infinity pool.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit these beaches with your friends and family. What better way to do it than staying with the best vacation rental option, so you can be completely in charge of your itinerary?
