Trip to Mexico - Need some Advice

Post by ricemeup » Fri Jan 26, 2024 3:15 pm

Hi everyone,

My wife and I are starting to plan a trip to Mexico next spring. We'd love to spend a week exploring some of the more popular destinations along the Yucatan peninsula. So far we're thinking about splitting our time between Tulum, Playa del Carmen and maybe Isla Mujeres.

Does anyone have any advice on the best way to fit all those places into a 1 week trip? We're open to renting a car or relying on buses/ferries if that makes the most sense logistically. We'd also love any recommendations for where to stay - we want nicely appointed rooms but don't need super luxury.

We'd also appreciate insights into what are can't-miss things to see and do in each of those locations. We're pretty active and enjoy beaches, snorkeling, hiking, Mayan ruins and good food/drink. Any "hidden gem" type spots that might not show up on all the guidebooks?

Overall we're really excited about exploring the Yucatan. Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions you have! Feel free to share experiences from your own trips to Mexico as well.

For accommodations, consider boutique hotels or eco-friendly resorts that offer nicely appointed rooms and personalized service without the super luxury price tag. Look for options with beach access, pool facilities, and convenient proximity to attractions and dining options.
It would be better to visit more places during the vacation, i.e. day 1-3 Tulum, 4-5 Playa del Carmen 6-7 Isla Mujeres
As for hidden gems, consider visiting lesser-known cenotes or exploring off-the-beaten-path beaches in Tulum and Isla Mujeres. Take the time to chat with locals and ask for recommendations, as they often know the best spots that may not be in guidebooks.
