There’s no question it’s one of Mexico’s best places to visit. Don’t get stuck on thinking Cancun is the only place with amazing beaches and stunning blue water. Fortunately, there are other places not far from Cancun with even more wow-factor and worth bringing to your attention.
Playa Del Carmen is the place to go for those looking for luxury beach clubs and world-class shopping. You’ll also find plenty of restaurants, bars, and some of the most popular nightclubs in the world.
Yet another stunning beach that will blow your mind is in Xcacel (pronounced ISH-kah-cell). The beautiful blue water and shimmering sandy beach are eye candy to behold. There’s more to Xcacel than this, though. For starters, turtle lovers will be in sealife heaven with the Turtle Sanctuary located here.
You don’t need to go to Jamaica to feel the magic of the Caribbean. This sleepy little island is a dream for anyone wanting a Caribbean experience without the crowds. Located about two hours north of Cancun, Holbox is only one mile wide and 26 miles long.
