Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: Eat at Mexican restaurants. Great value for money!!

Liked: Playa is beautiful. It has lots of variety fr shopping, food and activity. People are friendly and helpful and always good for a joke. The beach is nice and clean. The 5th avenue is amazing! It's hard to describe but I'm sure everyone would love it. It is quite expensive on that street but one street further down there is smaller and cheaper restaurants with amazing food. You can also get anywhere from here :) and Cozumel is just a ferry ride away. Lots of diving!!

Customer Travel Tip: Dont go to Xcaret! Far too expensive for what it is.

Liked: The beaches are nice. Close proximity to activities and Cenotes and Akumal
