    Pocket Guide: Quintana Roo

    Quintana Roo is in the eastern half of the Yucatan peninsula on Mexico’s southern border, and it is home to Mexico’s most famous beach resort, Cancun. Most of Quintana Roo is devoted to tourism, with a strong emphasis on beach hotels and resorts. Yet, it’s not all beach, beach, beach: Mayan civilisation was strong here, and the string of beach resort towns are often called the Mayan Riviera. The large number of archaeological sites in the state allows visitors to mix up their beach holiday with a good dose of culture, and the sites are full of ways to spark the imagination about how this golden sanded paradise might have been in times past.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in Quintana Roo

    Cancun — The extraordinary beaches of Cancun have to be seen to be believed. The resorts and hotels are built on what is effectively a sandbar with the Nichupte lagoon on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. Inland are Mayan ruins and underwater caverns with coral reefs and endless white sand along the shoreline.

    Chetumal — The state capital of Quintana Roo is at the mouth of the Rio Hondo on the border with Belize. The city receives comparatively few tourists but there are plenty of interesting archaeological sites to tempt people with an interest in Mayan civilisation, as well as duty free goods at the border.

    Cozumel — The largest island off the coast of Quintana Roo in the Caribbean Sea has its own international airport and plenty to recommend it. Cozumel is most famous for its scuba diving facilities and superb dive sites which range from coral reefs to wrecks. You’ll also find beaches and a national park with as many iguanas as tourists.

    Playa del Carmen — The European atmosphere of Playa is a contrast to the relentless playfulness of Cancun, and visitors will certainly find quieter, more relaxed surroundings here. With the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve nearby, packed with mangroves, and several eco theme parks as well, this resort at the heart of the Mayan Riviera is definitely worth considering.

    Things to See with a Hotel in Quintana Roo

    If you want to see one of the best collections of Mayan art in the world, head to the Museo Maya de Cancun. The museum draws together stories from across Yucatan and allows access to a neighbouring archaeological site. Yamil Lu’um and San Miguelito also show a great deal of Mayan civilisation within the Cancun area. The Isla Contoy national park is ideal for people who enjoy birds in their natural habitat – the unspoiled bird sanctuary hosts hundreds of bird species. Crococun zoo and the Punta Mosquito also make great spots for nature lovers. Naturally, there are dozens of great beaches to find. Playa Chac-Mool and Playa Las Perlas are among the quieter ones. For full-on raucousness, go to Playa Langosta, Playa Las Americas and Playa Marlin.

    Things to Do with a Quintana Roo Hotel

    Diving doesn’t get much more unique than at the Museo Subacuatico de Arte – an underwater museum with more than 500 sculptures on the seabed at fairly shallow depths. If you can’t scuba, you can even do a submarine tour. Of course, the beaches have everything you could imagine that a well-equipped resort should have: snorkelling, sport fishing, jet skis, motor boats, glass-bottomed boat tours, parasailing, windsurfing, surfing and sea kayaking. It’s easy to find superb seafood restaurants as well, and all the major resorts have nightclubs, discos and bars to suit all tastes and wallets. But, if all you want to do is soak up the rays on alabaster sand and take the occasional dip in the ocean, Quintana Roo does that too.

    Royal Hideaway Playacar All Inclusive - Adults only

    Lote Hotelero No 6 Desarollo, Playa del Carmen - Map
    "quick get-away"
    The Royal Hideaway is a little gem. We found the staff to be incredible - very nice, gracious, attentive. The grounds were very clean and the service, impeccable. The clientele is a bit older; we are in our early 40's and felt as though we were the youngest there. But, having the peace and quiet to come home to is nice. Playacar is a fabulous neighborhood. It's very safe and filled with people bustling around. And, downtown Playa is a quick walk from the resort - through neighborhoods or on the beach. Lovely.

    "Wonderful experience"
    Incredible service provided by bartenders Roy and Rubicel. They both continued to remember our family and each special request. They always gave their 100% and the service will stand out among the best. Above and beyond service by lifeguard, firstaider Gustavo. He not only stopped to help my daughter, but went a step further to make her comfortable while tending to her foot. His kindness and professionalism will be forever remembered. Carlos from the photo centre, needs a huge pat on his back for his happiness and carefree attitude in making us laugh and feel totally welcome. His professional manner kept us coming back for his smile and amazing photography too. We will be planning our next visit very soon to Sandos Caracol Eco Resort.

    "Wonderful Ocean Front Hotel in Tulum, Mexico"
    Since our last stay here a couple years ago, Los Lirios has added several more "palapa" buildings, each with spacious ocean front (or ocean view) rooms on two or three levels. King bed, sofa and bathroom inside, chairs and a hammock on the deck outside. A few steps away, the hotel restaurant offers buffet breakfasts and dinners and ala carte lunches. Between all the palapas and extending to the water is the beautiful, powdery white sand Tulum is famous for. We felt safe and comfortable in this romantic setting.
