Customer Travel Tip: relax enjoy the beaches and the atmosphere

Liked: Very different to Cancun its much more laid back and there is easy beach access which is not the case in Cancun

Disliked: The only real culture close is the Mayan ruins in Tulum and the weather is unpredictable as you would expect, but even when it rains it is warm. Ideal for the wet t shirt moment.

Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing

Customer Travel Tip: Stay somewhere a few streets back from the beach - quieter and much better value (on the beach in a basic room with a shared bathroom compared to a few streets back for the same price in a room with a private bathroom, fridge and TV).

Liked: Great beach - clear sea, powdery sand.

Disliked: Too many people trying to sell over-priced tat in English in US dollars... hassle.
