Punta Allen: The End of the World

Mar 3, 2008

While Maggie was in town we decided to drive out to Punta Allen. As my friend, Rupert, would say, "Punta Allen isn't the end of the world, but you can see it from there."

It's at the end of a little peninsula and is part of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere.

So we headed out with our trusty cameras and, of course, our dog. Later we learned that dogs are not allowed on the beaches in Sian Ka'an. One of our friends had said they were, so we were armed with faulty intelligence (can you tell we've now watched almost 4 seasons of 24?).

It took us maybe an hour and a half from Tulum to get to Punta Allen. None of us were sure what we were expecting, but it wasn't what we were expecting... It's a sandy little town with not too much going on. Really the perfect place for someone who REALLY wants to get away.

Here's a few photos from our little trip.
