Riviera Maya Tulum & Cancun Travel Highlights:

  • Cancun – With an average daily temperature of 80 degrees, this resort town is one of the most temperate and pleasant Caribbean destinations. The city boasts lively nightlife, high-end shops, and world-class restaurants in addition to its pristine beaches and close proximity to Mayan ruins.
  • Tulum – Tulum is one of the most visited ruins of the Mayan world, welcoming over 2 million visitors each year. The stunning contrast between the ancient stones of the Mayan ruins and the crystal waters of the Caribbean coast make the site a photographer’s favorite.
  • Isla Mujeres – This tiny island off the coast of Cancun was an ancient Mayan religious site dedicated to the goddess, Ixchel (the guardian of fertility and childbirth). Today, the island is a fishing community with a collection of small hotels. The tourist infrastructure of the island has grown rapidly in recent years but it remains a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of its neighbor, Cancun.
  • Cozumel – With world-renowned coral reefs, beautiful beaches, and exotic local wildlife, the island of Cozumel has developed a reputation as one of Mexico’s best spots for scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling and kayaking.
  • Playa del Carmen – Once a fishing village and pristine deserted beach, Playa del Carmen has turned into one of the hottest holiday destinations in Mexico. Smaller than Cancun, “Playa” offers the nightlife and dining of a city with the charm of a seaside beach town.
  • Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve – This 1.3-million-acre reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage site and covers nearly 100km of the Caribbean coast. This stretch of protected coastline houses many endangered species and is a spectacular place for bird watching, fishing, kayaking and exploring the mangroves.
