A PRISTINE BEACH WITH A REEF CLOSE TO SHORE

It’s a fun trip to Xpu Ha Beach which lies about 30 minutes driving from Playa del Carmen. We bring our boards so we can enjoy the sea and paddle to the nearby reef.

 

Xpu Ha (pronounce SHPOO-haa) means “Stream of two waters” in Maya. It is getting more popular with people who don’t mind making a little bit of effort to leave Playa del Carmen with its crowded beaches and make a little trip to this easily accessible beach.

The sea in front of Xpu Ha is very shallow, which makes it perfect for swimming, snorkeling and standup paddleboarding.

 

Make this a full day tour by adding one of the the other private excursions and pay only US$55 more!

 

Xpu Ha Beach & Reef

 

“There is nothing like SUP’ing in a beautiful aquamarine sea!! On my recent trip to Mexico, I enjoyed an amazing morning SUP’ing and snorkeling at Xpu Ha Beach (30 minute drive south of Playa del Carmen) with two guides from Aloha Paddle Club. this beach is incredibly beautiful with clear aquamarine colored water and gorgeous white sand beaches.”

 Xpu Ha is still relatively under-developed, so no big resorts or hotels. There is a beautiful coral reef close enough to swim to or to paddle to, in our case.

The beach is surrounded by mangrove which makes a perfect safe haven for many animals, and in the summer months we can find many turtles here that come to lay eggs.

 

ITINERARY

You can easily make this a full day trip by combining it with the Cenote tour or the Lagoon tour. In that case the total price will be US $150 per person and we will include a stop at our favorite taco shop.
