|About these ratings|
Just north of the Tulum ruins, the wide Playa Paraíso beach makes a relaxing topper to a day exploring the area ruins. With the recent arrival of the Nuddy Beach Club, the beach has grown extremely popular with Playa del Carmen or Cancún daytrippers as well as Tulum vacationers. But what it doesn't boast in seclusion it makes up for in activity -- you'll find plenty of opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving, plus a few hammocks, lounge chairs and umbrellas to choose from (if you get the ruins early you'll arrive at the beach in time to secure one) and a few beach bars should you want refreshment.
Paradise doesn't come free; there's a moderate charge for the watersports, the hammocks and chairs and of course, for any food. Save a little money by packing a towel and a snack of your own.
