Valladolid is a charming colonial town located between Tulum and Merida. Its close proximity to Ek Balam, Chichén Itzá, and the Coba Ruins make it an ideal place to have a relaxing afternoon.
Playa Del Carmen is a popular beach destination located roughly 45 minutes south of Cancun. Here you will find beautiful white sand beaches, vibrant nightlife, great shopping and amazing food. The caveat, however, is you need to know where to look. Playa can feel overwhelming and touristy at times but if you plan ahead and research, you will find that it has a lot to offer.
