Undoubtedly Quintana Roo is today the state with the greatest tourist development in Mexico. It has absolutely everything: Caribbean beaches, ecological reserves, archeological monuments, jungles, lagoons, gastronomic tradition, etc. At the same time it combines the most modern tourism with the most admirable vestiges of Mayan civilization.
Together with Tulum, Cobá and Kohunlich, visitors can stay in Cancún, Cozumel or in the Maya Riviera, the former being as imposing as the latter are paradisiacal.
This book describes the best way to get to know the attractions of Quintana Roo, such as the cove of Xel-Há, Xcaret, the beaches of Xpuha, Akumal, Paamul and Tankah, in addition to Isla Mujeres and Isla Contoy. The latter was declared a National Wildlife Reserve in 1961: more than 70 species of birds live there and it is a refuge for many migratory species.
Towards the south, after Tulum, extends the Sian Kaan ecological reserve, the largest protected area in the state where wild boars, tapirs and jaguars live, as well as a great variety of birds.
It is difficult to find, in any part of the world, a coastline of such beauty as the coast of the Mexican Caribbean. Its transparent beaches and reefs leave the thousands of visitors who travel every year to Quintana Roo in awe, where large-scale ecotourism in no way conceals the echoes of the Mayan civilization.
