Possible to find a hang-out beach a bit removed from PDC??

Would love to find a chill beach (and hotel?) that feels at least a little like mexico. Any suggestions either north or south of the PDC scene? Afraid that Akumal, Tulum and similar others would not work for us.

Thanks for any help that can be offered.

Do you want an all inclusive? How about adults only? What is your price range and does that include air?

Thanks for all your help.

No to AI.

No to Adults Only

No to Air included.

Local beach is great but need a hotel not in PDC

I want to be polite and non-judgmental but I am searching for a beach/town on the "Riveria Maya" coast that is ... well,,, like PDC was before it became so popular.

Also, searching for a white-sand beach w/o a ton of seaweed and slightly murky water.

Perhaps I am asking for too much.

My plan is 2-3 days beach-time then on to one of my favs...Valladolid!!!!!

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Great long sandy beaches in Tulum - boutique hotels

Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres are great sandy beach locations as well

Just reread your post

Perhaps Puerto Morelos is your best bet

Many nice condos / some non AI hotels I believe

Interesting community /hotel / beach just south of PDC is Paamul

Love Paamul and trying to keep it a secret - would not stay there without a car though. Only one place to eat and long, hot walk out to the highway.
