Gorgeous public beach. We took our lunch and stayed all day. Not as crowded as the hotel beaches. It is a short bus ride from downtown.
Love this restaurant, excellent food. Dinners are substantial, my husband and I could always share a meal and be satisfied.
A fun aquarium to visit. We happened to go on a cloudy day when it was not good to go to the beach. The exhibits are very interesting and you can also swim with the dolphins here.
Plaza Kokai is a nice downtown Cancun hotel. It is about 4 blocks from the ADO bus station. A very easy walk. We stayed here for a month in 2013 and were very happy with the hotel.
Hotel Parador is on Avenue Tulum about two blocks from the ADO bus station. It is a nice clean hotel with a restaurant. Breakfast is included, toast, juice and coffee. Other food items can be ordered extra. The pool was clean and the water warm. The staff speak a little English so we were able to communicate.
Good place to view Mayan ruins if you don't want to travel far. R1 bus will take you there, it is practically across the street from Playa Delfines. The ruins are interesting, not terribly large, an hour will get you through there. There is always an older gentleman there who would like to be your guide.
Ruins right on the water. We must have walked past this twenty times and did not notice it. The ruins are located between two of the hotels. You can talk to the guards at the hotels and they will tell you how to access the ruins from the road, or you can find a way to walk up from the beach. It is just a small temple, but interesting.
This is a very interesting museum. There are a lot of jade pieces and pottery in the building. Outside you can walk around in the Mayan ruins. It is a nice cool walk through the jungle. There is an entrance fee, and they have lockers and restrooms.
