Playa Esperanza is so peaceful yet not far from all the exciting things to see and do. In walking distance are the famous mayan ruins of Tulum. A 10 min drive brings you to the beautiful Tulum Town and its authentic, traditional atmosphere, made of little restaurants, bars and boutiques where you’ll enjoy delicious and cheap local food, typical drinks or where you’ll buy autochthonous jewelry and artifacts. At night you might end up at a party by the south side beach (15 min drive) where you’ll dance till dawn.

At the southern border of town (45 min drive) the Sian Kaan Biosphere begins: a large, natural reserve where you’ll tour untouched paths, canals, cenotes and lakes. Sian Ka`an Biosphere Reserve is a 1.3 million acres of land and the words Sian Ka`an mean “where the sky is born”.

Visit the world heritage ruins of Chichén Itzá – evidence a dazzling ancient city that once centered the Mayan empire in Central America. You have to drive about 2,5 hours.

The Ruins of Coba are beautiful and mysterious – only a small fraction of the many structures have been excavated. It is more similar to Tikal in Guatemala than to its Mayan neighbors. A 45 min drive will bring you there.

Muyil is the most notable pre-Hispanic settlements of the Sian Ka’an and is situated 22 kilometers south of Tulum.

Cenotes are underwater sinkholes formed when limestone caves collapse, revealing these underground pools. The Mayans thought they were sacred – that they were portals to communicate with the gods of the underworld. The best ones around Tulum are: Dos Ojos, Gran Cenote, Calavera, Carwash and Cenote Escondido.

Valladolid – such an authentic city. The city is deeply Mayan, from the cuisine — sweet and spicy, heavy on the beans and slow-roasted pork — to the guttural consonants of the Mayan language heard on its streets.

The Door of Hope at Playa Esperanza is pretty well known around. Hope is the feeling deep within us that leads us to fulfill a wish! That’s why this door leads the Name of Hope and its doors are open forever to anyone who wishes! Try it by yourself and step through the door overlooking the horizon and make a wish. At your side you may notice that there are no walls, because most barriers in our lives they do not exist. “They are the fears and prejudices” the obstacles that prevent us from achieving our dreams! Although, luck plays its role, here you can be yourself. Just have faith and observe how beautiful life is.

We are looking forward to welcome you in our little piece of paradise!
