Visit Mexico Commercial

Michael asks…

Where can I go on a beach holiday for under £500?

I live in England and have previously loved Mexico , Dom rep , cuba , Egypt and Florida keys . I went to Cyprus and the sea and beaches were lovely but it was to commercial . I quite fancy Greece but somewhere less commercial. I should be looking for a place where we can marry next year too.
We love the beach, scenary , animals , culture and getting out and about .

Tijuana answers:

Go to Greece. If you don’t want a commercial place, visit one of the following islands:
patmos
folegandros
samos
lesbos
lemnos
ikaria (really nice)
rhodes isn’t that bad at all, however there is a little tourism. Its nice for the culture, there’s a castle, city walls, etc. Plus a great sea

Maria asks…

Can anyone tell me where is a good place to go in Mexico which is not so commercial?

I am thinking of going to Mexico for my honeymoon. I want to see the Mayan pyramids and have some leisurely time on the beach with my husband. Can anyone help educate me on the best places to visit at a moderate price?

Tijuana answers:

I would look around Tulum in the Maya Riviera. The beaches are very nice with the clear Caribbean water and the further you can get from Cancun the less commercial things become. From Tulum you would only be a day trip away from the Maya sites of Tulum (obviously) Coba, Ek Balam, Muyil & Chichen Itza and several other smaller sites. I believe this is the best balance of Beach/Ruins/Less Commercial.

The other option that may be cheaper depending on the time of year would be something in the area of Progreso on the gulf coast. There is only one resort in the area (Reef Yucatan in Telchac Puerto) but house rentals are an option. If your honeymoon is planed for the 2 weeks at Christmas, the 2 weeks at Easter or June, July and August then rentals/acomidations in this area are hard to come by and very pricey. Other times of the year beach houses can be very reasonable to rent. The beaches here are not nearly as nice as the ones on the Caribbean coast. From here the Ruins within a days drive would be X’Cambo, Dzibilchaltun, Uxmal, Kabah, Sayil, Labna, Chichen Itza and many others.

You would also be close the colonia cities of Merida and Izamal. Both very beautiful and Izamal has some Mayan ruins there too. This area would be much less touristy than Tulum, but also may be more difficult to get to as there are less flights to Merida (closest international airport to Progreso) than to Cancun (closest international airport to Tulum).

Good luck
