There are very few places like Xpu Ha left in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, home to Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and many other well-known traveling destinations. Surrounded by nature and developed with an environment-friendly mindset, it is a peaceful paradise that’s not to miss during a trip to the region.

Here are 5 good reasons to explore Xpu Ha, the hidden paradise of the Riviera Maya. Don’t sleep on this place!


1. It’s oh so quiet

As opposed to most other beaches and destinations in the region, there aren’t any big resorts or developments at Xpu Ha, which makes it one of the most quiet, peaceful and sleepy spots that you can visit in the Riviera Maya.

Depending on when you visit, you could even find yourself alone at the beautiful beach, surrounded only by blue water, fresh breeze and the soothing sound of waves and birds. It’s natural therapy for your mind and body!


2. Yoga by the sea

Speaking of your body, you can treat it to some yoga at Xpu Ha. Even if you’ve never taken a lesson in your life, you should definitely try the experience here, since it doesn’t get any better than this.

With the sea as the background and the sounds of nature, you can try different yoga styles such as ashtanga, bikram and free flow.

3. Stunning nature

Xpu Ha is an unhindered area in which nature thrives. Take a swim at the Manati Cenote and the eponymous lagoon. Grab your snorkeling or scuba equipment and dive deep into the coral reef to find all sorts of swimming, colorful creatures.

Sea turtles nest their eggs at Xpu Ha from May through September, so you will also get a chance to see them –or their babies spawning and walking back to the sea. A true miracle of nature!


4. Fun at the sea

If you’re the kind of traveler who loves some activity and adventure, Xpu Ha is also for you. Kayaking, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving and sailing are some of the things that you can do here.

If you just like to hang out in the sea, you will love the fact that the water at Xpu Ha is shallow and calm, with little to no waves. It’s like a huge jacuzzi!


5. The sunrise

Did you ever watch the sun, rising above blue water, with its light exploding into several different colors as the sounds of the jungle awakening fill the space?

This is exactly what the experience of sunrise is like at Xpu Ha. A grandiose, spectacular and completely natural show that will blow your mind!
