There are many things to see in the Riviera Maya which extends along the Caribbean coast of Mexico. This beautiful stretch of land starts at the north in Cancun to the south in Tulum. What once started off as a small fishing village, this area has been developed into a modern tourist center with high-end restaurants, clubs and hotels but also has maintained its natural beauty. This combination enables you to enjoy a unique vacation not found anywhere else.

You can spend the day at the beach where you not only experience perfectly white sand and crystal clear water, you can also swim and play aquatic sports. At top hotels there are other amenities to enjoy such as private beach service for drinks and food, spa services and fishing. You can do this in Cancun especially where luxurious hotels line the coast. If you’re looking for more nature and fewer people, you can head south to Playa del Carmen and then take a boat out to Cozumel. This is where snorkeling is the best. Head farther south to Tulum to experience the least crowded beaches, stay right on the beach in cabanas and even see Mayan ruins right on the water.

As mentioned, snorkeling, and scuba diving, in the Riviera Maya is some of the best in the world. The coral reefs are found just off the coast and contain a huge amount of marine life. See colorful tropical fish, rays, dolphins and sharks. And away from the ocean, you can even swim and snorkel in the cave system right under the ground.

Besides the nature and nightlife that is abundant throughout the Riviera Maya, there’s also a lot of unique history. As the name implies, this was the home of the great Mayan civilization. Its ruins still exist for you to see. There are many places to see these ruins but the two best places are the famous Chichen Itza and the ruins found in Tulum. Both are highly recommended to see and if you’re interested in seeing more, there’s plenty to be found.

Since there’s so much to see and do in the Riviera Maya you may feel overwhelmed. To do it all you’ll need help. The best way to make your vacation easy and complete is to stay at one of the top riviera maya all inclusive resorts. Staying at one of these resorts will make care of your food, drinks, travel and entertainment. You can plan your stay and get help doing everything you wanted to do while in the Riviera Maya. Don’t risk wasting time or money trying to do it all yourself, leave the hard work to others so you can experience all it has to offer.
