The Mayan Riviera extends along the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula from Puerto Morelos to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
Once home to small fishing villages, the Mayan Riviera coastline has since been developed into a modern tourist corridor offering the very best of high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf in Mexico.
Everywhere you go in the Mayan Riviera, you will discover spaces that are perfect for a destination wedding and other destination events. Private villas, high-end luxury resorts or gorgeous boutique hotels and private beach clubs are just a few options for hosting your destination wedding or event.
An ideal vacation destination, the Mayan Riviera is home to some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in all of Mexico with expansive stretches of powdery white sand lapped by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
Spend the day at a luxury beach club where you can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, aquatic sports, spa services and a variety of modern amenities. You’ll find some of the best in the resort destination of Playa del Carmen, a friendly tourist town where you’ll also discover the Mayan Riviera’s best shopping, dining and nightlife.
The Mayan Riviera is one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. An expansive coral reef system extending just off the coast is home to a dizzying array of marine life including colorful tropical fish, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the Mayan Riviera are not limited to the ocean. You can also go snorkeling and cave diving in the many cenotes (underground sink holes) that are unique to this Yucatan Peninsula.
The Mayan Riviera is a top ecotourism destination in Mexico and throughout the region the natural environment is protected and preserved. Outside of the major tourist destinations, much of the land remains relatively undeveloped so the natural beauty of the Mayan Riviera and the creatures that inhabit it are left to flourish. Local eco-parks offer a taste of all that the area has to offer in controlled, family-friendly environments.
Mexico is a country rich in history, culture and tradition, all of which you will experience when you visit the Mayan Riviera. Participate in a traditional temazcal (Mayan sweat lodge) ceremony at one of the many resorts and spas. Explore the magical underground world with a dip in an underground sinkhole. Visit ancient Mayan ruins at Tulum, Coba and El Rey.
Adventurous travellers should venture off the beaten path to visit traditional Maya villages where you will witness the traditions and culture of this fascinating region and sample the local cuisine. A few hours inland, the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza are arguably the best restored and most impressive of the Yucatán Maya archaeological sites.
