If you are on vacation with your family and want to enjoy a day at the beach in calm waters and if that's not enough to enjoy one of the natural wonders such as the cenotes, we have an option that you will love, especially because you won't spend a single peso on the entrance fee. They are free.

This is Punta Esmeralda beach, a place that few people know about in Playa del Carmen, it is one of the best-kept secrets of the place that you can visit on a weekend or your next vacation.

The bad thing about this place is that during sargassum season, when the shore usually accumulates these algae, but don't worry, you will still be able to enjoy the beach and the beautiful cenote. If you are in Cancun it is just over an hour away and you will have to take the road to the south of Quintana Roo on Carretera Tulum - Cancun/Mexico 307.
