Mahahual

A growingly popular destination on Mexico's Caribbean coast, for most of its history Mahahual remained a tiny fishing village well off the beaten path.
On the 16th (Mon), stop by Colleen's Magnetic Jewelry, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then take advantage of the amenities at Maya Chan Beach.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Mahahual fast, fun, and easy.

Tijuana to Mahahual is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Eastern Standard Time (EST) is 3 hours. In March, Mahahual is somewhat warmer than Tijuana - with highs of °C and lows of °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Tulum.

Tulum

The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization.
Visiting Paradise Beach and Climbing Tours will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Ek Balam and Plataforma de Venus. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tulum: Chichen Itza (The Ossuary & Chichen Itza), Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Puerto Aventuras). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Tulum Archaeological Site, get engrossed in the history at Museo de la Prehistoria Parque Dos Ojos, look for gifts at Kaahal Home Tulum, and explore the fascinating underground world of Gran Cenote.

Traveling by car from Mahahual to Tulum takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. When traveling from Mahahual in March, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Tulum: temperatures range from °C by day to °C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel to Cozumel.

Few destinations in Mexico dazzle visitors quite like Cancun, a modern resort town filled with glitzy hotels sitting on picturesque and well-developed Caribbean beaches.

Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Isla Mujeres (Iglesia Del Sagrado Corazon & Captain Dulche's Museum) and Puerto Morelos (Zipline & National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos). And it doesn't end there: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, play a few rounds at Cancun Golf Club at Pok-Ta-Pok, browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, and steep yourself in history at Zona Arqueologica El Rey.
