3 AWESOME RIVERA MAYA LOCATIONS YOU’VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF...
Everyone knows about Tulum, Chichen Itza and Cancún but here are 3 awesome Riviera Maya filming locations that you’ve probably never heard of:
#1: XCACEL - THE VIRGIN BEACH
Rivera Maya beaches are famous the world over, but most every stretch of powder white sand also has at least a few hotels on it. The exception is the still wild beach of Xcacel, located 20 minutes north of Tulum. Xcacel is a protected turtle sanctuary, that has so far managed to keep development at bay. The sand is silky soft, the waters are crystal clear, and there is even a fresh water tropical cenote hidden in the jungle. For a deserted beach location, Xcacel simply can’t be beat.
#2: HOLBOX TOWN - CARIBBEAN COLOR
When visitors to the island paradise of Holbox finally tear themselves away from the splendid shell covered beaches, they discover that Holbox town is a unique and endearing place well worth the two hour trip from Cancún. With sand streets, pastel timber buildings and street murals everywhere it is difficult to take a bad picture in Holbox town. Adventurous and romantic, Holbox is a town with a hundred stories waiting to be told.
#3: CENOTE NOHOCH - A SUBTERRANEAN SECRET
The Yucatan peninsula is riddled with underground rivers, sinkholes and caves. When intrepid visitors descend into Cenote Nohoch, just an hour from Playa del Carmen, they discover a secret world that evokes feelings of being on a distant planet. With 3 large caverns spreading over hundreds of meters, Nohoch is a beautiful, eerie and enthralling place to create cinematic magic.
