Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, located in the Yucatan Peninsula and once home to small fishing villages, has been developed into a modern tourist corridor offering the very best of high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf. The region is home to some stunningly beautiful beaches with expansive stretches of powdery white sand lapped by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
The Yucatan Peninsula offers a wealth of historical and ecological attractions including New Seven Wonder of the World Chichen Itza, the coastal archaeological site of Tulum, eco-park and the world’s largest aquarium at Xel-Ha and natural park Xcaret. The region is one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkelling, with an expansive coral reef system extending just off the coast hosting a dizzying array of marine life including tropical fish, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks.
Adventurous travellers can venture off the beaten path to visit traditional Maya villages where you will witness the traditions and culture of this fascinating region and sample the local cuisine. Or take a dip in a Cenote, a large, naturally occurring underground freshwater swimming pool revealing a secret subterranean world around since the time of the ancient Maya.
