    Surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea, this is one of the corners of Mexico that still has that Caribbean charm. Walk along its main street and enjoy its gastronomy in a restaurant near the beach or on its colorful streets. Rent a golf cart and journey to explore the island: amazing places like Punta Sur, where every morning the sun’s rays touch the coast. Cool off swimming in Playa Norte and enjoy sunbathing on the white sand while listening to the wind playing among palm trees, this is how this new Pueblo Magico invites you to live Quintana Roo.

    Forget about using shoes for a while, bring your sandals to walk down the main street while you decide where to enjoy the exquisite cuisine of this paradise. Take your towel, sunglasses and visit the only archaeological site next to the sea in Mexico. Walk and discover Playa Paraíso, where the white sand and turquoise waters are the ideal places to relax. Do you like adventure? Visit Sian Ka’an and explore the nature of the Riviera Maya in Punta Allen and Boca Paila: where you will have a better connection turning off your phone. This is just the beginning of the magic.
