Virgin beaches, crystal clear waters, Mayan temples and a huge variety of hotels make the Riviera Maya the ultimate beach destination in Central America.

What do to in the Riviera Maya

The Riviera is about unwinding and falling into the laid back nature of the area by taking everything a little slower. If you can pull yourself away from swinging in a hammock whilst sipping on a daiquiri cocktail then there are different experiences in the area for those looking to combine first class beaches with some light exploration of the area.
Here are a couple of our tried and tested ideas to give you a feel for what you could do whilst here.
  • Snorkelling-the best way to enjoy the snorkelling is to take a day trip out on a private catamaran to explore the Caribbean crystal clear waters where there are a number of locations that are great for snorkelling.
  • Cenotes- a day trip to one of the natural sink holes is a fun excursion and a great way to cool down in the hot region
  • Temples-the area is abundant with Mayan temples and an early rise to beat the crowds, and the heat, for a tour with a top local guide will bring the sites to life and give you an insight into the ancient world.
  • Night scene-those looking for somewhere with a night scene can try the chilled out vibes of Tulum in one of the trendy bars.
  • R & R- massage parlours, open air yoga studios, wellness centres and juice bars have popped up in recent years to cater for the health conscious tourist.
  • Golf there are several very good golf course in the region that we can organise a tee time and club hire for you. The most prestigious being the Fairmont Mayacoba that regularly features on the PGA Tour circuit.
  • Wildlife-head to theSian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is a UNESCO protected area of coastline that is fantastic for birders, fishers and kayakers.
