Riviera Maya, Mexico: breathtaking beaches and historical sites

Travellers fly to Cancún to discover the Mayan Riviera, a tropical strip of coast along the Gulf of Mexico. Among the many things to do, tourists love it for its exceptional beaches, exotic marine life, lagoons and coral reefs, fun excursions, as well as its many archaeological sites—a unique mix that makes Riviera Maya one of Mexico’s most popular destinations.

The beaches

Named for the fair woman, Isla Mujeres is a beach lover’s paradise for its white sands, stunning lagoons and coral reefs rippling with tropical fish and other oceanic treasures. Tourists also flock to Cancún, known for its long, white beach on the Caribbean sea and its deluxe hotels.

Riviera Maya: a diver’s dream

All passionate divers know about Cozumel, Mexico’s largest island surrounded by turquoise blue waters and exquisite coral reefs. A must-see destination for die-hard divers who love unforgettable experiences along the ocean floor.

The ancient city of Tulum

The walled city of Tulum stood from 900 to 1540 AD. Although its temples and buildings are smaller than those found in Chichén Itza, Tulum is a compelling testament to its Toltec and Mayan roots.

Outdoor adventures

Travellers wishing to explore the Mayan Riviera and Cancún region should head to Playa del Carmen, a popular spot with hikers, archaeology buffs and nature lovers of all kinds.

Nightlife

When the sun goes down on the Riviera Maya, party people head to Cancún or further south to Playa del Carmen for a night out on the town. Both cities are bustling with restaurants, bars and discos begging for patrons to dance the night away.

To ensure a successful trip to Riviera Maya, read this useful information about travelling to Mexico.
