If you’ve been to Playa Tulum, you know it can get crowded. The beaches are beautiful and the water is clear, but sometimes it’s hard to find a place to sit without having to share your space with hundreds of other tourists. If this is what you are looking for on your next trip to Tulum, consider heading south and spending some time at Paradise Beach. This lesser-known beach has the same crystal clear waters as its more famous neighbor, but with far fewer people than most beaches in the area, and is easily reached by car or cab.
What to do at Paradise Beach in Tulum?
Paradise Beach is a beach south of Playa Tulum. It is very popular, but not as crowded as Playa Tulum. The water is clear and warm. It is shallow, so it won’t be a problem if you have small children or don’t know how to swim well. The water also seems safe, especially since it is calm most of the time. Playa Paraiso is the perfect place to spend the day if you want something quieter than the main beach in Tulum. It’s not as crowded, so you can enjoy the sun and sand without worrying about finding a place to sit. Plus, the water is clear and warm, so it’s great for swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing on your floating mat.
The parking lot is easy to find, and when you get there there will be a small stand in front of you. Here you can rent umbrellas, chairs and hammocks for a low cost. You don’t have to rent anything if you prefer not to, but it is recommended, as it helps protect you from the sun and makes the experience more enjoyable. There are also no additional costs for renting these items: the price is included in the ticket price. If you bring your own things (beach towels, etc.), leave them at home instead of bringing them to the park.

Where to eat in Paradise Beach? Best Restaurants
Bring some extra cash for food and drinks. Only cash is accepted at Paradise Beach, so bring plenty of bills or your passport (which can be used as a debit card). Prices may seem outrageous at first glance, but remember that you are on vacation in paradise.
Food and drinks are expensive at the resort, but that’s to be expected when it’s an experience worth every penny. If you want to save some money, bring some snacks from home or pick something up at your last stop before leaving the Cancun airport. You’ll also want to pack sunscreen – and maybe even a hat with an umbrella – to protect yourself from the sun’s harsh rays, as there are no umbrellas or shade structures around the beach area of this particular section of Tulum beachfront lodging options.
