Riviera Maya is located on the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, from Punta Brava just south of Puerto Morelos to Punta Allen, which also embraces the Tulum-Coba corridor. The peninsula on the southern end of Mexico includes several Mexican states and part of Belize and Guatemala. The Riviera Maya is famous for its white sand beaches, theme parks, golf courses and a wide range of Mayan ruins that have attracted tourists for decades.
The Riviera is considered an imminent high-end international destination. Five-star hotel brands have entered the market, and some others are in planning stages for different residential and hotel projects along the Riviera. This is the fastest growing vacation destination in the Caribbean and has been chosen as Best Destination in Mexico for the eighth year in a row by Travel Weekly Readers Choice Awards. In addition it has been awarded with several prices, including the distinctive W Travel Awards in the categories of Best Mexico Tourism Promotion, the Best Visitors Bureau, and the Best Destination in Mexico. It was also referred by Travelocity as the “Best Luxury Destination in Mexico.”
Some of the most attractive activities in Riviera Maya are snorkeling and diving in the Great Mayan Reef, which stretches from the Yucatan Peninsula to Belize. The Riviera Maya has many underground rivers that open to the surface through cenotes where one can go cave diving, as well as navigating sailboats, catamarans and windsurfing along the coast.
