About
Though less than a mile from the Tulum Archaeological Site, Playa Paraiso is surrounded by untouched forests, giving it an idyllic and secluded feel—perfect for relaxing at. Take a dip in the crystal-clear waters before indulging in some delicious seafood at one of the beachfront restaurants. You can also go on a boat tour to snorkel around coral reefs. For better weather, you might want to plan your trip between April and May to avoid hurricane season. During the warmer months, you may come across seaweed on the beach, but don't let that stop you from enjoying this beautiful spot. – Tripadvisor

Another rip off beach where you will get people chasing you trying to sell you things you don't want.
Even to get to the beach is 58 pesos per person to enter the "archeological zone" and yes you have to pay it. That does not cover the entrance to the disappointing ruins either.

Hardly any shade on the beach as all the beach clubs have taken over the best parts.

Just a sad place I'd never call "paradise" more light nightmare.

Huge dissapoinment! Dont waste your time and money here! It is absolutely sad to see how pure nature is ruined here. Beach full of sea weed and beautiful nature does not exists here anymore. You also need to pay to access to beach and parking a scooter also! Marine patrols everywhere and also people who try to cheat money from tourists, whole place is very disturbing.

Please dont support this place.

Food at the restaurant was terrible, 90% of the food was just vegetables. Drinks were awful as well. Do not recommend at all, avoid at all cost!

The beach is covered with sargassum seaweed. Some of the establishments have made mounds 6-10 feet tall and in other places it takes up 6 feet of width along the beach. The smell is rancid.

Getting there was a nightmare. The traffic was some of the worst I have ever experienced. There is no place to park.

The military patrols the roads and the beach. The water is full of boats with gasoline engines.

We were constantly solicited to purchase trinkets.

A very demoralizing and disappointing afternoon. It’s tragic to see the chaotic development here. And then we learned that less than 2 percent of hotels and housing has a septic system. Raw sewage is being put into the underwater river which then feeds into the ocean. Destruction of nature’s beauty by humans at its finest.

Lovely beach just south of the Maya preserve. It is filled with local families, kids, volley ball, boats, etc. We had a great day enjoying the atmosphere and almost avoiding the incessant music blasted on the more southerly beaches. While we still paid for an umbrella and a spot on the sand, it was considerably cheaper than the in-town beaches.

Beautiful.

Be careful, my daughter was allergic to the seaweed which apparently happens to those with sensitive skin.

In my opinion one of the nicesr beach areas in Tulum. Nice white sand and boue water; really feels like paradise. Just make sure to visit when there is no seagrass ;)

Not too crowded, very nice sand, restaurants available. Parking is a bit of a problem but is available for a cost.

Really bad experience in Tulum Mexico!
Arrived in Downtown Tulum, asked for a taxi ride to Playa Paraiso.
500 pesos one way. The taxi drivers are really shooting for the stars.
Same distance in Playa del Carmen -- 100 pesos.

Ok. Arrived in Playa Paraiso -- 300 pesos to sit on a chair on the beach.
That's creepy!!!
But ok. Overwhelming heat. Go to a restaurant there to hide from the sun.
500 pesos for a dish of shrimp and mussels, cooked to death.
In a scorching heat.

People!!!
Are you serious???
THIS ????? For tourism????

If you are still in doubt, your return taxi ride is another 500 pesos. There is nothing else to ride on.

Seriously, wake up and stay away of this hell hole.

This is a "public" beach but you have to pay for chairs if you don't want to sit on the sand. And there isn't much clean sand at the time of writing. Unfortunately, this beach is practically unenjoyable thanks to the sargassum problem.
