The Riviera May, Mexico is nestled along Mexico’s Yucatan coast and stretches
from Cancun, Mexico
south to Punta Allen, just south town of Tulum. Sometimes called the Mayan Riviera,
this beautiful, mostly undeveloped section of Mexico
is home to ancient Mayan ruins and stunning Playa
Del Carmen beaches
, and it has the Great Mayan Reef, the second largest coral
reef in the world, just off its coast. Towns are few and far between, and the
beaches are mostly empty, with a few fishermen and dive operators here and there.
For this reason all inclusive Riviera Maya Resorts are very popular.
although this area remains remote and relatively unpopulated, more and more lavish
Riviera Maya resorts and hotelsare popping up. Those travelers coming to Mexico
for Mayan Riviera vacations usually focus on the city of Playa del Carmen (also
known as Playa) or on the town of Tulum. This is where most all inclusive hotels
and resorts are found, although Playa certainly has more of them than does Tulum.
and hotels are very exotic and lavish.
Playa del Carmen is the place where the ferry to Cozumel docks, but with its white beaches and tranquil blue waters, this is also a favorite locale for sun bathing and diving. A mellow city with an authentic Mexican charm, Playa del Carmen is growing but is still remarkably unspoiled. Mayan Riviera all inclusive vacations can be found at the luxurious Grand Real Porto, the delightful Hacienda Vista Real and the exquisite Grand Coco Bay All Inclusive Resort in the Riviera Maya.
Tulum, nearly at the southern end of the Riviera Maya, is a walled, Mesoamerican
town and the site of some of Mexico’s most amazing Mayan
. The Tulum Ruins, as they are known, date from 1200 A.D. and are the
third most visited Mayan archeological site in Mexico. When it comes to lodging
in Tulum, most Mayan Riviera all-inclusive resorts found here are low-key but
posh. Several of the most exclusive include the gorgeous Blue Tulum Resort and
Spa, the lovely Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa and the sumptuous Hidden Beach Resort.
Mayan Riviera cruises are a popular way to visit this beautiful stretch of Mexico.
These cruises generally sail year-round and start from Florida ports, including
Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, and from Gulf Coast ports, such as Galveston, Texas,
in the U.S., making stops in Playa del Carmen (Calica, actually). Cruises
along the Mayan Riviera give vacationers a glimpse of the lush scenery
that makes up much of Mexico but is often overlooked as tourists gravitate to
well-known beach resort towns and cities. Ship lines offering Mayan Riviera cruises
include Carnival and Windstar.
Overall, Riviera Maya, Mexico is an incredibly popular, yet beautful and exotic
adventure playground for travelers. The next time you are looking for a great
time in a hot tropical location, consider booking an all inclusive Riviera Maya
