Riviera Maya Tourism: Best of Riviera Maya

About Riviera Maya
Starting from the fishing village of Puerto Morelos and rolling down to the biosphere reserve of Sian Ka'an, the Riviera Maya covers an impressive stretch of Caribbean coastline. It’s a jumping-off point for popular spots like Cancun, Tulum, Isla Mujeres, and Holbox Island—so no matter what you’re looking for, there’s a beach for every vibe. There’s plenty of sacred ruins and deep blue cenotes to explore, plus, the area’s diving and snorkelling are next-level, especially at Xcaret and the Puerto Morelos reef. Party people find that New Year’s Eve is just the opening act for a whole season of action—including February’s Carnival season, with parades and elaborate costumes that are always a draw. But there’s plenty for families too, like water parks, zoos, and beaches perfect for sand castle building.
