Uncrowded, unspoiled, and unhurried is the best way to describe Xpu Ha.  The beach, which is calm and clean is the main attraction, and other then a few hotels, restaurants, and shops, there is not much else to see.  If sightseeing is important to you, it is recommended that you enjoy the peace and solitude of accommodations in this area of the Mexican Caribbean, but take a short drive up the coast to larger resort towns like Puerto Aventuras for more activity. 


Playa X-Puha

You will find an abundance of beaches to visit in and around the area. You can click on the beach names for more information concerning that individual beach.

Playa X-Puha: Playa X-Puha is located off Federal Route 307 at Km 265.

Another location for beach-goers to consider is Half Moon Bay Beach. The beach is backed by a number of privately owed condos, but that shouldn't deter guests from planning a day on this beach. The snorkeling is worth a trip, with turtles, barracudas, small fish, and even a shark on occasion.

Playa Akumal: Blinding white sand powders the shore of Playa Akumal, which is lined with palm trees. As visitors sit ashore and look out over the sea they are awarded an expanse of clear topaz waters dotted with sail boats.
