Riviera Maya

4.2
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. Riviera Maya is in Quintana Roo. Make Riviera Maya central to your Mexico travel plans using our Mexico online holiday maker .
