Riviera Maya

Glorious golden sands, ancient ruins and delicious cuisine makes Riviera Maya a Mexican holiday destination that offers unrivalled tranquillity, beauty and serenity all tied with a luxury bow.

You’ll want to make sure that you bring your camera as you’re bound to be floored by the idyllic coastline that is seemingly everywhere you look. It’s all yours to explore for your entire holiday, and what a wealth of activities you have at your fingertips. Whether it be watersports or hiking, swimming with dolphins or off-road driving, Riviera Maya has is all.

Diving is ever-popular with holiday makers wanting plenty of adrenaline-fueled underwater adventures during their stay. The absolute crème de la crème is on Gran Cenote Island close to Tulum, or head to Pared Verde in Playa del Carmen to be put through your paces, assisted by gorgeous coral reef. Fancy keeping afloat? A plethora of luxury yacht excursions are also all offer, with sunset cruises for two or larger groups available.

If you’re travelling with little ones in tow or need of a few thrills, Riviera Maya boasts two theme parks to its name. Xplor Park gives you the chance to soar through the trees, with a range of zipwires that swish into caves and natural springs. Xcaret Eco Themepark is certain to please all animal lovers thanks to its butterfly pavilion and awe-inspiring snorkelling.

Alternatively, the ruins of Tulum or the caves of Rio Secreto are both musts for history buffs. Forgotten for centuries but rediscovered by many in recent years, your stint here is certain to be memorable as you immerse yourself in the tales of years gone by.

With all this excitement, you really do need a heavenly base to call home for the duration of your stay, and boy, does Riviera Maya deliver. From magnificent spas that you can lose yourself in, to private villas and plunge pools aiding the perfect chill out, relaxation is guaranteed. However, if you still need some thrills, many five-star resorts boast swimming pools, tennis courts and access to some of the best golf courses in the area. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to embark on the holiday of a lifetime.
