Riviera Maya stretches along the Yucatan Peninsula on Mexico’s Caribbean coastline. From Puerto Morales in the north through Playa del Carmen to Tulum and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve in the south, taking in luxury all inclusive resorts, stunning beaches, turquoise seas, temples and jungles en route.
With average daily temperatures of 25ºC, it’s no surprise that holidays in Riviera Maya are a great choice year-round. Riviera Maya is one the top destinations for scuba diving and snorkelling, with abundant marine life and coral reefs offshore and the unique inland cenotes to uncover. The bustling resort of Playa del Carmen is home to great shopping, dining and nightlife. Fun-filled family times are on the menu at the Xcaret Theme Park or in the largest natural aquarium in the world at Xel-Ha. Explore the culture of the famous Mayan ruins at Tulum or inland at Coba and Chichen Itza.
There's no shortage of things to do and see on Riviera Maya holidays. Get up close to indigenous wildlife, birdlife and natural attractions at the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, explore the mystery of the Mayan caves at Aktun Chen, enjoy some retail therapy on La Quinta Avenida in Playa del Carmen, relax with a traditional Mayan treatment in a spa, play golf on no less than eight top-class golf courses, discover turtles in their natural habitat at Akumal, and deep sea fish for wahoo, snapper, marlin and tuna.
