beautiful beaches

I am going to Playa soon. I would like to know which are the most beautiful beaches , in order to choose a hotel not so far. Thank you very much for any info you can send me. And if you know about any beach with a bit of shade, it would be great.

1. Re: beautiful beaches

Any of the Resorts in Playa Del Carmen or south in Playa Car are beautiful. You would have to go south to Xpu-Ha Beach to equal those. The beaches south of Tulum Ruins are even better yet.

North of Playa Del Carmen the best beaches are South of the Iberostar and North of El Dorado Maroma, this beach is Maroma Beach. A bit further both there are pieces of amazing beaches with Playa Secreto being the best.

As much as I don't care for Cancun there is little arguing that the beaches in the Hotel zone are also amazing now.

The beach in Playacar is perfect. There are 13 All Inclusives (AI's) in Playacar on the beach, all a little different and one to fit any budget. Playacar is just to the south of Playa del Carmen and a short walk or inexpensive taxi ride. If they don't have palm trees for shade, then they will have beach umbrellas. Most have both trees and umbrellas.

The beaches in Playa del Carmen are also perfect, but fewer AI's. The Royal Playa del Carmen is adults only but it's sister resort the Gran Porto Real is just across the street and they love kids.

There are numerous little boutique beach hotels in Playa and even more boutique hotels in town at a lesser cost.

Condos are all over the place, on the beach, just off the beach but with a view and then real inexpensive condos a little ways away from the beach. These are all within close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
