Tulum

— 7 nights
The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Paradise Beach and Xpu-ha Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Climbing Tours and Cenotes Sac Actun. Explore Tulum's surroundings by going to La Playa Xpuha (in Xpu-Ha) and Playa del Carmen (Off-Road Tours, 3D Museum of Wonders, &more). And it doesn't end there: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, shop like a local with Art Gallery Miniature, head outdoors with Ana y Jose Beach Club, and get engrossed in the history at Museo de la Prehistoria Parque Dos Ojos.

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.
