Tulum’s reputation for stunning aesthetics rests largely on Playa Ruinas, which boasts well-preserved Mayan ruins overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful (and photographed) sites in the Americas, the beach combines white sand, turquoise waters and a site of genuine historical importance. The clifftop Castillo was built as a watchtower in the 13th century and is now the third most visited archaeological site in Mexico.

The ruins of Tulum preside over a rugged coastline, a strip of brilliant beach and green-and-turquoise waters that'll leave you floored. It’s true the extents and structures are of a modest scale and the late-post-Classic design is inferior to those of earlier, more grandiose projects – but, wow! Those Maya occupants must have felt pretty smug each sunrise.

Cenote Suytun is an epic cave cenote with a defined light beam coming through a hole in the ceiling, and a man-made platform in the centre. At the right time of the day and year, the light will shine directly on the platform.
Ancient stalactites decorate the ceiling and in the center a hole lets light in. The water is not that deep here and you can swim in this cenote.

Cenote Suytun is fast becoming one of the most photographed cenotes in Mexico. It is more than just a beautiful cenote – it is an impressive underground cavern. There is a walkway that you can cross to reach the center of the cavern, where you will see a shaft of light come through a hole from a top the cave.

The Yokdzonot sinkhole (cenote) in Mexico's Yucatan region is filled with deep blue water fringed with tropical foliage and draped in curtains of long ropey roots.
Cenotes were the only source of water for the Mayans in this jungle-clad part of the world and they did indeed think of them as the entrance to the underworld, home to gods and their spirits after death.

Looking west toward Ka’ena Point, you’ll see the sky erupt in blues, greens, and purple as the sound of waves crashing on the point fill the air. While it’s hard to go wrong when scoping for sunsets, watching the sunset at Shark’s Cove is a must for all visitors.

Located on the windward side of Oahu, Kualoa Ranch is a private nature reserve & cattle ranch. On the ranch's northern half is Ka'a'awa Valley, a popular TV and movie location where Jurassic Park, Lost & Hawaii Five-0 were filmed. The southern half of the ranch is home to Hakipu'u Valley, the 800 year-old Moli'i fishpond and the serene Secret Island beach.

Mokolii means “little lizard” in Hawaiian. It’s also called Chinaman’s Hat because of its cone shape, which resembles the peasant’s hat worn in rural China. Besides a few lonely palm trees and two small beaches, there isn’t anything else here. But it’s still a great place to visit if you like adventures and would like to have an island to yourself once in your life.

Lanikai Beach Oahu Hawaii is a destination all unto itself.  It is not onlydescribed as "most beautiful" of all Oahu beaches, but Lanikai Beach ranks as one of the best beaches in the world.  Surrounded by endless miles of calm tranquil aqua blue waters, it’s hard to look at it these special windward ocean waters without getting an urge to jump right in. I loved! 😍
