Quintana Roo' '' is the easternmost state of [[Mexico]], located on the Yucatán peninsula. It shares borders with the Mexican states of [[Yucatán]] and [[Campeche]] to the west, and with [[Belize]] to the south. Its capital is [[Chetumal]], while the biggest and most important city is [[Cancún]]. Quintana Roo is probably the most touristy state of Mexico. Especially Cancún and [[Playa del Carmen]] on the ''Riviera Maya'' are crowded with foreign tourists and expensive hotels. However, going further inland you can find beautiful and almost empty places. While still very touristy, the Maya sites of [[Tulum]], [[Cobá]], and a few more are worth visiting.
