This place is beautiful. The town is bustling, lots to do and see and to eat and drink... the people are beyond friendly, I wanted to move here after 5 days. The beaches, they are like oatmeal...so soft and creamy. The water was like jade-colored...just gorgeous. I fell in love with this city and it's people...we will be back!

I'm very pleased I chose the Riviera Maya for my first visit to Mexico. It's a beautiful region with clear blue water, and gorgeous reefs for snorkeling.

The beaches and ruins are spectacular. Lots of resorts and small hotels around. The Mexican people are gracious. Rivera Maya is such a beautiful place with so much to explore, you need more than 2 weeks here.

Fantastic part of Mexico!! The landscape isn't that interesting, but if you love the ocean, scuba diving / snorkeling, great food, the sun, relaxing on / near the beach, Maya ruins, shopping and other activities, you can't go wrong staying in one of the cities!!

The beach here is crazy beautiful. Powdery white sand stay stays cool even in the hottest temperatures. Almost feels like baby powder

Area was well manicured and well taken care of. Excursions and site seeing areas were well planned, beautiful, fun and very safe. The resorts are amazing with something for everyone. We will definitely be going back here again next year.
