Whee doggy, almost like off-roading, we were bounced and jiggled around and I swear even with my seat belt on I hit my head on the roof of the car. We found a fairly full parking lot and made our way down to La Playa beach club. We got settled in, ordered a couple of chelas, got Max lathered up with sunscreen (always a battle and a half for some reason) and set him free to terrorize the land. There was some great salsa music playing and we noticed that a band was setting up their gear. When they started playing I was thrilled, they were very good! Nothing like a gorgeous beach, live salsa music and a couple of cold ones to make a Sunday grand.
We chilled, we frolicked, I went for a long walk down the beach. The ocean at Xpu Ha is absolutely, without a doubt, the clearest, most beautiful water I have ever been in. No seaweed, no rocks or coral, no silt, just pure crystal clear blue waters and white sands, quite stunning. It's hard to impress me with beaches now, but this one knocked my socks off (well, if I had been wearing socks they would have been knocked off for sure). Some black clouds started to roll in from the sea, but we pshawed them and stayed put. It rained for a few minutes and then all was clear and hot again. The band didn't stop playing, no one packed up and left, the rain didn't phase anyone. Just another day in paradise.
Sweet spot behind an abandoned resort
There is a camp ground right on the Xpu Ha beach, we're hoping to spend the weekend there very soon, can't wait to go back and fully enjoy this prime spot in the Mexican Caribbean! This fantastic little place is not very well known to tourists, so shhh, keep it our little secret please!
