If you want to go the american style resort - go to Cancun. But if you want to know what the paradise looks like go to Tulum. Especially the color of the sea is striking. You can't stop staring and enjoying. If you add the white, hot sand, fauna, the sun, and the voice of the sea you feel like staying there forever. You have the impression as if there was no time passing. 

Except the virgin like beach there are very nice ancient ruins to see nearby. 

The food again is extraordinary. Ceviche of shrimps served with avocado is just delicious. Tacos - very tasty as always.

Of course you can't miss the local drinks. My favourite - pina colada. 

Have a look at the animals. I just fell in love with iguanas. I must have one as a pet when I have my own house ;)


Practical information

It's the town of the taxis. i had an impression every second citizen of this town is a taxi driver. There is barely any bus communication so they are the main mean od transportation there between the town and the beaches. Although you can try hitchhiking. Most of the time it works quite well. Then you can spare something like 4 USD each way. 

Food is great but expensive. You should count 10-15 usd per hot meal.

We spend 5 days there living in cabanas (small wooden houses).

Be prepared for the mosquitos. They are really enoying. The itching doesn't stay long, but it's strong and there are plenty of them in the July-August time.
