The Beauty Of The Riviera Maya

Mexico is a bright and colorful country that is perfect for a vacation. Say “Hola” to Riviera Maya, a region in Mexico with exciting tourist attractions, gorgeous natural surroundings, and all the culture and authentic Mexican food you could wish for. 

So let’s explore and find out why your holiday in Riviera Maya will go down as one of your best vacations ever.

For History Lovers

Go back in time as you explore ancient Mayan ruins that are thousands of years old. There are so many ruins to discover. We love the ruins at Tulum because they are near the beach, while most are in the jungle. After you photograph the old ruins, you can take a dip in the ocean or have a picnic on the sandy shores. 


Chichen-Itza is one of the new seven new wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This impressive active archeological site gives you a glimpse into what Mayan life was like, and archeologists are still making discoveries. 

You will find Ek Balam, one of the most fascinating ruin sites in Riviera Maya, in the middle of the jungle. The original walls are still standing, and you can see the most epic views if you climb to the top of the acropolis. 

For Fitness Enthusiasts

Hiking around Riviera Maya is inspiring, and being outdoors surrounded by green jungles, scenic walking trails, and lakes sure beat being at the gym. No matter your fitness level, you can find the perfect hiking area. 

For Nature Lovers

Beautiful cenote

Riviera Maya is a natural wonderland with caves and cenotes being a unique part of the scenic landscape. A cenote is a natural pit that forms when limestone collapses and groundwater is exposed. Swimming in a cenote with the sunlight shines down onto the water is a lovely experience, especially if you’ve hiked a distance to reach the beautiful spot. 

For Animal Lovers

The snorkeling and scuba diving in Riviera Maya are spectacular. You can go out on a boat for a day and dive with professional dive instructors who will also be hoping to spot whales, dolphins, stingrays, and sharks. If you don’t, you are sure to see gorgeous coral reefs and colorful fish swimming around the warm turquoise waters. 

If you want adventure, you can swim with sharks at the eco-archaeological park Xcaret. You start by sitting on a shallow platform to get used to the nurse sharks, which aren’t dangerous. The trainers will educate you before you take the plunge and jump in to snorkel with the sharks. 

For Sun Seekers And Water Babies

The beach life in Riviera Maya is what entices many visitors in the first place. With long stretches of sandy beaches to relax on, clear blue water to swim in, and water sports galore, you can have fun in the sun all day long. There is no shortage of beautiful beaches in Riviera Maya!

As you can tell, Riviera Maya has something for everyone, from blissful days of chilling to action-packed adventure. Drop me a line to discuss your vacation dreams. I am ready to make them come true!

Until next time,

Live. Laugh, Travel.
