When you think of white sand beaches in Mexico, Playa del Carmen must rank as one of the best. The beach is one of the best I’ve ever had the privilege of walking on (and this is coming from an Australian).
The soft white sand is composed of coral, which means that the sand remains cool even when it is baking hot, which was every day when I was there. Usually on a hot day you would have to walk briskly across burning sand. Here though, the sand is cool under foot.
