When you leave the Cancun airport, you drive south along highway 377, which parallels the coast of the Mayan Riviera. There are many resorts all along the highway, in addition to water / theme parks, ruins, cenotes and other attractions. About 10 miles south of the airport you will come to the exit for Puerto Morelos, a nice little town with much to offer in the way of shops, bars, restaurants and excursions. Another 10 miles south of Puerto Morelos brings you to the access road to Playa del Secreto, where Sandy's Villas and Casa Secreto are located. Further south along the highway, about another 20 miles, is Playa del Carmen which is a great place to dine, bar hop, shop, people watch or whatever.
