Riviera Maya

Well-preserved ruins and stunning white-sand beaches make for memorable Riviera Maya vacations, though this coastal area also features a number of modern cities ideal for soaking up some local culture and learning about Mexican cuisine. Stretching for approximately 100 km (60 mi) along the Caribbean coastline, this region serves as one of the world's most popular vacation destinations, known for containing big-name resorts like Playa del Carmen and Cancun. If you get tired of sun and sand, enrich your Riviera Maya sightseeing experience by visiting the area's eco-archaeological theme parks, which preserve swathes of wilderness and encompasses restored structures from the Mayan period. With our online itinerary creator, Mexico vacations can be built around trips to Riviera Maya and other destinations in Mexico.
