Xpu Ha. Beauty Beyond The Beaten Path.
Updated: Apr 12, 2020
Xpu Ha Beach, Puerto Aventuras, Mexico
It used to be a secret, a little dirt road off of 307 North that opened to peace, quiet, serenity and beauty. Not so much anymore as the word has gotten out, BUT do put Xpu Ha on your must visits if you are on the Yucatan Peninsula. Make it a day or afternoon, but whatever you choose, you will enjoy this slice of paradise. A beautiful, flat wide beach of white sand. There are few more beach side restaurants open now that will offer exactly what is needed, light snacks and cold drinks. If you prefer a little bit more to nosh on, bring your own. If you're not the BYOB (bring your own umbrella) type, pay for an umbrella which will allow you to sit in the shade and spend up to whatever the minimums might be, as low as 200 pesos, which includes beach side waiter service. Xpu Ha is still a relatively hidden charm and one you must get to if you need a day away from the crowds. Sundays are the most crowded, but the rest of the time you and your fellow beach goers will have a semi private escape that is wonderful.
