Mexico boasts 9,650 km (6,000 miles) of coastline. The Riviera Maya extends along the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula from Puerto Morelos to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. It offers high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf.
An ideal holiday destination, the Riviera Maya is home to some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in all of Mexico with expansive stretches of powdery white sand lapped by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
Spend the day at a luxury beach club where you can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, aquatic sports, spa services and a variety of modern amenities.
Visit ancient Mayan ruins at Tulum, Coba and El Rey. A few hours inland, the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza are arguably the best restored and most impressive of the Yucatán Maya archaeological sites.
Consider a day trip via ferry from Playa del Carmen to the Caribbean island of Cozumel where you will enjoy world-class scuba diving, snorkeling and aquatic sports, or, simply spend the day relaxing on the beach.
For the Yucatan Peninsula, where the Riviera Maya and its archeological ruins sit, the Northern Hemisphere's winter is the best time to explore the Mayan Ruins. At any time the powdery soft beaches of the Riviera Maya beckon irresistibly.
On the eastern tip of Mexico, way out in the Caribbean Sea, the Mayan Riviera is a great place where to relax while waiting for the arrival of your child.
There are plenty of All-Inclusive retreats, dining options and spas by the sea with the added advantage of being close to some of the best pre-Columbian archeological sites in Latin America.
