General Tips and Suggestions

1) If you are a US citizen, no visa is required for stays under 6 months of duration.



This is a great little town that is close to Playa del Carmen and Cancun with more to see and do than just the archeological site by the same name.  We rented a great little townhouse in a quiet neighborhood.  It was a bit far removed from the center of town but taxis are easy to grab and aren’t hard on the wallet.

Favorite Activities

1) Cenotes.  Cenotes are lakes/pools inside of caves.  The Yucatan Peninsula are full of them and a visit to a cenote should be on everybody’s must-do list when visiting this area of the world.  We went to Choo-Ha, which is up by the Coba Archeological Sight, and a perfect way to cool down after spending a few hours exploring Coba.  It is less advertised that others in the area which meant that we had it to ourselves for the majority of the time.  There are two others right by Choo-Ha and they’ll give you the option to buy a three cenote hop pass when you enter into any one of them.  We knew one would be enough for our kids so we did not take them up on this offer.

2) Coba

3) Muyil

4) Siam Ecological Park
