Explore the Yucatan
Riviera Maya Hotel Areas

Riviera Maya is Diverse

Hotel areas include:

  • Akumal
  • Playa del Carmen
  • Puerto Aventuras
  • Tulum

 The second largest reef system in the world, the Great Maya Reef, runs along the coastline and an unrestrained jungle surrounds the towns and beaches. In this part of the Mexican Caribbean full of exotic tropical animals peering or flying through the branches, there are many places to explore. A unique and complex underground river system flows beneath the surface and visitors with magical caverns, caves and cenotes (sinkholes). There are also hundreds of archaeological sites, remnants of the incredible and timeless Mayan civilization, and a spectacular and plentiful marine life.

Exploring the Yucatan Peninsula

With a mix of world-class hotels, natural wonders and ancient ruins, the Yucatan Peninsula provides entertainment for explorers of all ages.  From full-service hotels to amazing ruins and fascinating jungles, the Yucatan Peninsula sets the scent for memories of a lifetime.

Quintana Roo:  Something for Everyone

In addition to the spectacular white sand beaches and turquoise sea, vacationers can dive into such adventures at the Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA) with 400 underwater sculptures; the Cancun Maya Museum; and swimming with the whale sharks.  One of the Riviera Maya's newest attractions, Xplor, is a natural adventure park with 14 ziplines, underground river rafting, cave swimming, ATV's and more.  Farther south is Tulum an ancient Mayan city overlooking the Caribbean Sea.  A trip to Tulum can easily be combined with a stop at nearby ruins Muyil or Coba.  Or recommend the full-day exploration of Tulum and the Mayan Jungle, which includes snorkeling, swimming in cenotes, a jungle tour, a traditional Mayan purification ceremony and more.

Yucatan Mayan Splendors

West of Quintana Roo, the Yucatan is home to one of the best known Mayan sites, the magical and mysterious Chichen Itza.  One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fascinating complex thrills visitors with its Temple of Kukulcan pyramid, Ball Court, temples and platforms, and nightly sound and light show.  Swimming in the fresh clear waters of Yucatan's cenotes is a great way to cool off.  Families can combine a dip in a cenote with a trip back in time at Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, a grand restoration of a henequen hacienda, where visitors tour on wooden platforms pulled by mules, visit a typical Mayan House, enjoy typical Yucatan cuisine and more.

Campeche:  Traditional Haciendas

South of Yucatan, Campeche is home to the Mayan ceremonial center of Edzna as well as the World Heritage colonial city of San Francisco de Campeche.  Former haciendas are dotted throughout the state, providing visitors a window into traditional Mexican days of yore. 

Riviera Maya Hotel Areas

The hotels of Cancun and the Riviera Maya are legendary, a family playground at multiple price points.  

Playa del Carmen:  37 miles south of Cancun (approximately a 45 minute drive) halfway to Tulum.  Playa del Carmen was once nothing more than a dock from which ferries departed fore Cozumel, it is now one of the most sophisticated tourism centers along the Riviera Maya.  Visit Fifth Avenue's trendy restaurants, bars and shops.

Puerto Aventuras:  Puerto Aventuras offers ecological tours, water sports and fishing.  Stop at the San Carlos Marina and enjoy its cafe's and restaurants.

Akdolphinjohn.jpgumal:  Akumal is an approximate 70 minute drive south of Cancun.  Akumal is a gathering place for divers from around the world due to its proximity to subterranean rivers and caves with depths of up to 150 meters.

Tulum:  At the southern end of the Riviera Maya, Tulum combines the mystery of ancient Mayan civilization with the beauty of the Caribbean Sea.  After exploring the ruins, cool off in the natural aquarium of Xel Ha, a snorkeler's paradise.

Visitors will fly into Cancun and enjoy a scenic drive south to fascinating Riviera Maya, with its unspoiled pristine beaches, tropical jungles and ancient Mayan ruins. Snorkel in crystal clear turquoise waters. Enjoy the best values under the sun as a vast array of fabulous new all-inclusive hotels. Also known as the Cancun Tulum corridor, this nearby area of lush, natural coastline from Cancun south to Tulum is home to several attractions that should not be missed on a Cancun vacation

The 100 km stretch known as the Riviera Maya is in the middle of the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo. Here the towns are smaller and there are fewer tourists with miles of solitary virgin beaches, sparkling white sand and crystalline turquoise waters.

A Riviera Maya Vacation

To the south of Cancun, the Riviera Maya offers a unique and different experience. With its wide expanse of beaches and proximity to Mayan cultural sites, it is the old world meeting the new. Thousand-year old ruins lie within sight of luxurious mega-hotels offering every amenity imaginable. For Golfers there are a variety of challenging courses to choose from. Many hotel's here are all-inclusive, offering all meals, drinks, tips, and entertainment at one price, an attractive option for budget-conscious travelers and families.

Relax all day in a hammock beside the Caribbean Sea or walk the powder-white sand beaches that stay cool as they reflect the heat of the tropical sun.

Visit the nearby town of Playa del Carmen, with shops featuring local art and handicrafts, where you can take the ferry across to the island of Cozumel.

Uncover the ancient culture of the Mayans and visit ruins that reveal their lives and beliefs. Afterwards, cool off with a swim in a cenote, a freshwater pool bringing water from underground limestone caverns to the surface.
