Customer Travel Tip: A few days here will suffice. A great place to take day trips from. Easy to leave and return via collectivo. Visit anyplace between Tulum and Puerto Morelos for a couple of dollars.

Liked: Easy to navigate. Colorful. Great jumping off place for much if the Yucatan. An easy place to visit for those new to the Mexico experience.

Disliked: Expensive. Overpriced food, beverage, and accommodation. The hawkers and street vendors are trying to separate you from your money constantly. This may be their job but it proves exhausting. Extremely touristy.
