Riviera Maya Hotels

One of the most magnificent areas which the Caribbean Sea encompasses, is the Riviera Maya. While the whole area is driven by tourism, the feeling is more authentically Mexican, and not anything  like the "spring break" party towns of Cancun & Cozumel.

The Riviera Maya is well known for its more refined range of  luxury accommodations. What you will discover in abundance are plenty of exquisite hotels on the water, massive luxury resorts (including one that falls into the AAA Five Diamond status), boutique digs, villas, and more fresh, fine dining than you’ll possibly be able to comprehend.

While all of Mexico presents magnificent sites, natural wonders, and tropical beauty, the Riviera Maya is set apart because of the unique natural diversity and history. Of course you can definitely get your fill of expected aquatic pursuits like scuba diving, snorkeling, and yacht charters in the Caribbean. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, which is the 2nd largest in the world, begins in this area and stretches along the whole length of the Riviera Maya into Guatamala. This reef is also known as the Belize Barrier Reef, and it is teeming with incredible life forms, and should not be missed on a visit. Archaeology is another one of the biggest tourist attractions, with many people coming just for the experience of exploring the Mayan ruins and historical sites. Run by the Instituto Nacional de Archeological, tours in Tulum which is on the coast, as well as further in land at the sites Chichen Itza and Coba are among the most popular in Mexico. Other sites of interest are the ecoparks, Xcaret and Xel-Ha, which hold smaller-scale ruins, and specialize in activities like swimming with dolphins.

Also unique are the many freshwater caves and sinkholes, better known as cenotes that can be found here. Cave exploration and diving are especially popular, as are kayak tours through these areas as well as the surrounding mangrove swamps. The wildlife is abundant, and it is not uncommon to spot crocodile, alligator, fish, wetland birds, and numerous different butterfly species.

If the Riviera Maya is beckoning you, and you’re looking for the most spectacular spots to stay, look no further.
