What are good places near Cancun?

#1

Is there a place close to Cancun such as Playa Del Carmen or Talum where I can stay for 1-3 months? Any recommendations? Or is that not a good place for a long term stay?

I love the beach there when I visited there, I thought it would be nice to be able to live by the beach and work for a little while.

Playa del Carmen is convienent, but the whole coast there is a tourist hotspot; no real Mexican culture, just entertainment. I recommend heading into the interior. It’s cheaper and full of culture. We’re in Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende and San Cristobol are both equipped and beautiful locations.

Merida is great and still feels Mexican while having lots of expats.

I personally found Playa more expensive than the Med countries in Europe, so kind of defeated the purpose of being there!
