Activities in Xpu Ha

Sandwiched between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Xpu-Ha has become a nice mixture of the two destinations as tourism has creeped into town.  There are just a small number of resorts here, so for the most part it remains uncrowded, but the activities that are available here speak to that of a much busier destination.  Fishing is a top choice, but other watersports are popular as well, you can play mini golf with the family, and you can plan a visit to the town's newest eco-park which is 10 acres of forest, wetlands, and ruins.
