flying into Cancun?

My husband and I are going on an anniversary trip in Dec. The cheapest flights to Mexico are to Cancun. However, we wanted to stay some where that was a little less "hustle and bustle." We are willing to drive from Cancun to wherever...but we have no good idea about distance to nice places from Cancun. Any ideas?? THANKS!

North of Playa del Carmen is Capitan Lafite (see They have pool & restaurant, nice stretch of beach. There are a few smaller hotels like it between Capitan Lafite and PDC, which is a 40 minute drive from Cancun.

If you drive a little further to Tulum, try Cabanas Ana y Jose. They also survived Hurricane Emily just fine without any major damage.

I'm sure others have their recommendations, but these might fit what you're looking for. Enjoy the trip.

I suggest Akumal which is about 90 minutes south of Cancun. It's small, friendly and right on the beach. It has everything you'll need without the hustle and bustle and ickyness of Cancun.

Here are several suggestions that fit what you are asking for:

Akumal - 1 hr plus
Isla Mujeres - short taxi then 15 min. ferry
Tulum - 2 hours plus
Playa del Carmen - 1 hour
