Riviera Maya is a region of unparalleled beauty with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. Full of contrasts, it combines the picturesque provincial atmosphere with the sophistication and modernity of luxury hotels, in addition to offering friendly hospitality and Caribbean warmth, virgin landscapes and vestiges of Mayan culture.
South of Cancun is the Riviera Maya, a true natural paradise bathed by the waters of the Caribbean. It has a coast of more than 120 kilometers between Puerto Morelos and Punta Allen, in the region of the Yucatan Peninsula.
The destination is home to luxurious secluded resorts amid splendid nature, offering entertainment, relaxation, the best golf courses and exclusive spas in Mexico.
On its white sand beaches, such as those of Secreto and Paraíso, the couple will be able to practice all kinds of water sports and land activities. You will also discover ancient Mayan cities like Cobá and Tulum, the latter by the sea; and discover incredible ecological reserves such as Sião Ka ́an, considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, where they can also practice ecotourism, such as hiking or horseback riding, with the crystal blue of the sea as the main scenario.
The Riviera Maya is one of the best destinations for diving and snorkeling, as it has an extensive coral reef and houses a huge variety of marine species. Diving in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean is magical, a giant aquarium with exotic fish, rays, giant turtles, dolphins and whale sharks. The sea is not the only place where the couple can perform water activities, there are natural pools formed by underground rivers. The experience of exploring a cave will be unforgettable!
