Where is the Riviera Maya?
The Riviera Maya is located along the Caribbean coast, in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. It is a cradle of civilizations and home to an extraordinary natural landscape. A fascinating destination where you can explore the remains of what was one of the oldest known cultures. Walk around Chichén Itzá, Coba, Tulum… or relax on the beaches of Playa Akumal, Xpu-há, Cozumel…
Mexico will surprise you with its simplicity and ease, which filters thorough every corner. A country that can be proud of its passionate and dynamic people, the grandeur of its cities, and its natural landscapes filled with ancient monuments. From the historic Tulum onward, the whole region seems as if it were touched by the gods.
What is there to do on vacation in the Riviera Maya?
Tulum is the quintessential Mayan city. Its name comes from the sea-facing “wall” that surrounded the city in ancient times. Strolling through the temple ruins or simply admiring them from a distance connects you with an ancient force that makes up the Mexican identity: sensitivity, ingenuity and freedom.
The most outstanding places in the Riviera Maya, which you cannot miss while visiting, include: Cobá, in the heart of the Yucatán jungle; the wonder of Playa Paraíso; the magical natural wells, including the Gran Cenote, Zacil-Ha and Aktun-Ha.
If you’re looking for natural beauty of the purest kind, pay a visit to Sian Ka’an. The Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve is the biggest in Mexico, protecting more than 500 hectares of ecosystem, 800 types of plants, 360 species of birds and other animals.
Besides being home to a wealth of cultural treasures, the Riviera Maya is a destination for sun-lovers, who’ll be in heaven in Playa Akumal. Did you know that its name means “Place of the turtles”? That’s due to it being a place where several species of sea turtle choose to lay their eggs. A natural wonder that’s a must-see during your vacation.
In addition, for those looking to give their vacation an original touch, they’ll be able to try their luck by taking a golf lesson. The Riviera Maya Golf Club is an impressive golf course in the Mayan jungle with natural lakes and wells. Recently recognized as one of the best courses in Mexico and America, why not pick up a new sport or try perfecting your swing?
