Further south of Tulum, almost to Belize is Bacalar. This place is really amazing, it's an inland lake where the cenote water meet the sea waters. it's called the lagoon of seven colors because the different water types and mixes of, create distinct shades of blue in the lagoon. if you can get yourself a raft or small boat it would be much more fun. You can buy a two person raft to row in Playa del carmen at Wal-Mart or mega for about $50-$60. There are small hotels on the lagoon and the city of Bacalaar which is small but authentic. The trip from The RM will take you through Carillo Puerto which is a very authentic mexican town. You can also stop in Majuhual, which is a strange little town on the a beautiful coast. it was hit by a hurricane last year, so was Bacalaar so i don't know what they are like now. I imagine things are back to normal now. There is a town between cancun and Playa called Puerto Morelos. This is a tourist town but it's much smaller and has a different vibe. It's very easy to get to Tulum and Puerto Morelos from anywhere in the RM so they are a good place to start. Merida may be yopur best bet for authenticity, but I admit, I have not yet been there. It's about 5-8 hours from the RM. All of these places can be reached by buses or you can drive a rental car.
As far as I know, Majuhual is pretty much back up and running now. There is still a bunch of damage, but inns and hotels are open and everyone down there sure would appreciate the business.
