Tulum

The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization.
Change things up with a short trip to Xcaret in Playa del Carmen (about 58 minutes away). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Tulum Archaeological Site, enjoy the sand and surf at Paradise Beach, whizz through the canopy at Xel-Ha Park by Xcaret, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

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.
