Quintana Roo, Mexico‘s eastern-most state, is the tourist hotspot of the country. It even recently changed its timezone so that tourists could enjoy an extra hour of daylight in the evening. That’s how committed to tourism this state is!

Most people visit Quintana Roo to spend time in the sun, making the most of the white-sand beaches and warm water. There’s great food and Mayan ruins, as well as the geologically interesting cenotes — pools that were originally part of underground rivers, revealed when the bedrock above collapsed. Many of them are open to the public, and for a fee you can swim in the cool, fresh water.

Many people flock to Cancun, which is a convenient entrance point with its large international airport, but if you’re after more of an adventure, catch the boat to Isla Mujeres or head south to Playa del Carmen, Tulum, or further afield.

I love the colours here in Mexico — we saw these tiles outside a shop in Cancun.
