We hope that everyone is enjoying an incredible summer so far, taking full advantage of the sunshine and everything that the warm weather brings with it. We’ve been keeping busy the last few weeks, going on adventures and exploring the world around us. Time flies when you’re having fun. As a result, we haven’t had much time to post on the blog, but we’ve come back just in time to share our August 2019 desktop wallpaper. When the sun is shining, we usually like to spend some time at the beach; there are few beaches in the world that we enjoy more than Xpu-Ha, located just outside of Playa del Carmen on Mexico’s Riviera Maya.
We’ve lived on the Caribbean Coast of Mexico for a few years and have done quite a bit of exploring over this time. The Riviera Maya is blessed with many great beaches to visit during your vacation, so for us to single out one as being our favourite must hold a little bit of weight. This stretch of white sand beach has a special place in our hearts, as it was our favourite destination for an afternoon trip when we lived in Playa del Carmen, especially when we were showing off Mexico to our friends and family when they visited us.
This beach is located about 30 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, and has a few beach clubs that will service your needs, with cold beer, hot food and unforgettable beach views. You can rent paddle-boards, kayaks, snorkel gear or anything else you might need to enjoy the beach. We usually like to bring our own snacks and a full cooler of refreshments, and take a short walk along the beach until we find an empty piece of real estate on the sand south of the popular areas.
This beach is so pristine that it has been used to film Corona commercials in the past. The water here is warm, so its a perfect spot for swimming and even has a few hidden spots for snorkeling. Xpu-Ha Beach is the place we think about when we’re daydreaming about tropical beaches, and is the perfect place to showcase for our August 2019 desktop wallpaper.
We have been creating beautiful desktop wallpapers as a new monthly feature that we have been working on for 2019, showcasing pictures from some of the amazing places we have traveled over the last few years. We hope you enjoy our latest installment! Stay tuned for our September wallpaper coming soon, and we hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer weather!
