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.

Border Crossing

When going to Belize, keep in mind that Mexican officials might charge you for leaving the country.
