"We took a ferry across to..." Mexico Off The Beaten Path Tip by mmanchack

Mexico Off The Beaten Path: 212 reviews and 213 photos


We took a ferry across to Playa Del Carmen and a bus up to Cancun on our trip to Cozumel. Skip Cancun ? it?s no different than Miami. Playa Del Carmen, however, had the most beautiful beach I?ve ever seen. The water was absolutely turquoise, the sand was white and fine, and it was a sleepy little Mexican town.

I had a friend who stayed for a week in Playa Del Carmen and it was her favorite vacation ever. She stayed in a little thatched hut, which was very inexpensive, and had a great time. Next time I go to Cozumel, I plan to spend more time there. If you get a chance, I recommend that you check it out, too.
