Punta Allen is a fabulous peninsula with an expansive stretch of secluded, powder white soft sandy beach. To get to this hidden gem head south (from Cancun) on highway 307 (the only main highway) until you are just south of the big Tulum sign (about 131 kms or 81.4 miles south of the Cancun Airport). As soon as you pass the Tulum Ruins parking lot look for the traffic and light turn left, drive 1 mile ahead and you'll find hotel signs, turn right. You'll be on the road that parallels the ocean, be patient as you drive past some hippy looking village spots (or if you are a hippie person stop here). Drive until you reach a large speed bump right in front of Ana y Jose Hotel and Restaurant. There is a parking lot on the right.
This is where we chose to stop… who knows what else is down the way… keep exploring and let us know. You can stop here or go to any of the small bars on the beach. If you don't stop here park wherever you can and enjoy the beach by walking up and down until you find a place that suits you. Of course we found the one with the most amenities and a fabulous restaurant and beautiful clean restrooms. If you drink or eat at a bar or restaurant in most of the small hotels on the beach they welcome you to use their beach chairs and facilities.
We found the most beautiful location at Ana y Jose and we wanted to stay the night, but the rooms were all booked up by a wedding party. Now that we know the area a bit better we’ll reserve one of these fabulous rooms.On this stretch of sand there are boutique hotels with very rustic amenities all the way up to exclusive villas.
