As the Riviera Maya’s most glam resort, Playa del Carmen is the place to see and be seen. From lounging on the pristine sands to relaxing over a cocktail or two in the resort’s bars, you’ll be holidaying in style. Thanks to its beach bars and lively nightspots, Playa Del Carmen is a good choice of resort on the Riviera Maya for those who want a vibrant night scene without the busy beaches of Cancun to go with it.
The ancient Mayan city of Tulum is within easy reach of the Riviera Maya resorts and makes an interesting excursion for anyone interested in archaeology or history. The ruins are located on a cliff top looking over the beach and the Caribbean and it’s a great location for some fantastic snapshots to fill your holiday album. The Temple of Frescoes can also be seen from here.
Contoy Island is so exclusive that only a small amount of people are allowed to visit it each day which means that you get a feeling of tranquillity that would otherwise be missing on this beautiful paradise island just off the coast of the Riviera Maya. It’s well worth a visit to snorkel the coral reefs, bird watch or just explore and enjoy the desert island beach.
Cenotes are underground caves that you can swim in, and the Mexican jungle behind the Riviera Maya is a hotspot for these magical watery caverns. Sac-Actuncenote offers possibly the most exciting snorkelling and swimming opportunities as the world’s longest underground river.
There are two amazing eco-park attractions on the Riviera Maya, Xel Ha and Xcaret. Both make fantastic family friendly excursions on package holidays to Riviera Maya, and are well worthy of a visit. Both attractions offer the opportunity to swim with dolphins, snorkel the cenotes and have fun with a range of other things to do and see. At Xel Ha you can walk on the seabed with the Sea Trek experience, or cycle from tree to tree on a jungle zip bike. Xcaret is a great choice for live entertainment, with daily performances depicting the vibrant traditions and culture of Mexico.
Xplor is an amazing jungle attraction where thrill-seekers of all ages can whizz above the jungle canopy on zip wires. You can also take to the river in this natural adventure park on rafts and amphibious jeeps and swim in the underground caves.
Holidays to the Riviera Maya mean pristine beaches, exciting attractions and a resort to suit everyone. As the gateway to both lush green jungle and deep blue waters, it would be impossible to choose a better place to experience all the adventures that Mexico’s Caribbean coast has to offer.
