Felipe Carrillo Puerto

Felipe Carrillo Puerto, the Costa Maya's first major town, is named for the governor of Yucatán in 1920, who was hailed as a hero after instituting a series of reforms to help the impoverished campesinos (peasants). Midway between Tulum and the beaches of the Costa Maya, the town itself has very little to offer visitors; however, Chacchoben, a little-explored archaeological site, isn't far.
