Tropical paradise where ancient wonders meet turquoise shores

Partying in Playa del Carmen and Cancun, sea turtles in Akumal, or ancient mysteries in Coba and Tulum, the Riviera Maya has something for everyone.

Welcome to the enchanting Riviera Maya, a mesmerising stretch of coastline along the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. A tropical haven, where ancient ruins, turquoise waters, and lush jungles converge to create a dreamlike escape.

Head to Tulum, a wonderful coastal town that beautifully blends Mayan history with breathtaking beaches. Explore the Tulum Archaeological Zone, perched on a cliff above the sea, and witness the magnificent ruins of El Castillo. Afterward, unwind on the pristine beaches, basking in the sun's warm embrace.

Discover the vibrant town of Playa del Carmen, boasting an exuberant atmosphere, upscale shopping, and dynamic nightlife.

For an unforgettable experience, visit Akumal, known for its sea turtle population. Snorkel or swim alongside these gentle creatures in their natural habitat, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Venture into the jungle to uncover the ancient city of Coba, one of the most significant Mayan archaeological sites. Rent a bicycle or hire a pedicab to explore this expansive site, culminating with a climb up the Nohoch Mul pyramid, offering panoramic views of the surrounding jungle.

No visit to the Riviera Maya is complete without experiencing the renowned Cancun. Dive into water sports, embark on a snorkelling adventure, or simply relax on the stunning beaches.

Xcaret is an eco-archaeological park just outside Cancun, that utilises underground rivers and lush jungles to create a natural theme-park. For entertainment there are the mesmerising evening shows celebrating Mexican culture, featuring dancing, horse shows and Mexican art. Xcaret promises an all-encompassing experience that will delight nature enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
