Rediscover the Riviera Maya on Your Next Vacation
What is the Riviera Maya?
Located on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico in the Yucatan Peninsula, the Riviera Maya is an area known for its long stretches of white sand beach and is home to the famous towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
Mayan Riviera all inclusive resorts are also a very popular aspect of the area and are actually what draw most travelers in.
Things to Do
There are lots of great activities you can choose from once in the area. These range from the beloved sport of snorkeling and scuba diving to local attractions built for those who love a bit of adventure.
If you’re traveling with kids in tow, you’ll want to check out Xcaret Park, a theme park that is also a resort and a self-described ecotourism location. Here you’ll find snorkeling and cave exploration activities as well as some great dining options. Another great option is the Rio Secreto where you’ll find yourself exploring miles and miles of caves.
In fact, these caves are known as the longest in the entire country of Mexico and are big enough for you to walk, float and swim. Other activities in the area include fishing, deep sea fishing, water skiing, kayaking, horseback riding (either on land or in the water) and the famed game of seaside golf.
Ruins to Visit
If you’re looking to learn a little bit more about the area’s history while being up close and personal, you’ll want to plan a day trip down to Tulum to explore the Tulum National Park.
Not only is this park beautiful and one that overlooks the ocean, but it also houses the Castillo, the Temple de las Pinturas and a few pyramid shaped temples that present views of the jungle. Then when you’re all done exploring the ruins you’ll be able to take a beautiful walk along the beach and grab a bite to eat.
A Favorite Among Travelers From All Over the World
The Riviera Maya has long been a favorite of travelers from around the world, and for good reason. With so much to do and see, it really is hard to go wrong.
Even if you’re traveling with younger ones who may be a bit fussy as what to do each day, you’ll still find that there are enough options to keep everyone happy. If you’re traveling as a couple, one of the many all-inclusive resort options should be your perfect fit.
