Welcome to Riviera Maya Holidays

You can find everything you need within this site to plan your dream vacation to Mexico. I would describe the region as a captivating, inspirational and picturesque location. In my opinion, what really sets Riviera Maya Holidays apart are the never-ending list of possibilities.

On an average break for example, you could stay in one of the luxurious
all inclusive resorts, explore the ruins at Tulum, enjoy delicious traditionally cooked Mexican food and find out about the fascinating history and regional culture. That is of course, before you even set foot on the stunning white sandy, sun-soaked beaches…

The area is situated on the spectacular Caribbean Sea coastline
of Quintana Roo. There are many spectacular destinations to choose from.

Pinpointing A Dream Location

Finding the perfect spot for your dream vacation can be a difficult task. One thing is for certain though, it doesn't matter whether you are young or old, single or attached, in a group or with the family! There is a fantastic experience waiting for everyone in Mexico.

I would recommend the areas of Akumal, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Aventuras as the most prominent and popular locations.

Playa del Carmen is a tourist hot spot for travellers and is home to the iconic 5th Avenue. Here you can find an extensive supply of restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and even the odd traditional market. Playa del Carmen Resorts range from high-end luxury to low budget hostels.

Akumal is home to a variety of extensive all inclusive resorts. I would describe this area as having a serene sense of calm and luxury. Many exciting Mexico attractions are close by in Akumal and the location is popular for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Tulum is famous for its historic Mayan ruins, beautiful white sandy beaches and impressive cenotes. Tulum is generally a quiet and relaxed destination, it could be your preferred location if you are looking for eco-orientated resorts or beachfront cabanas and condos.

Puerto Aventuras is a gated resort community situated around the central hub of the Marina. The surrounding villas, condominiums and luxury hotels are located in the ideal position alongside a variety of restaurants, shops and popular activity centres.

Our Travel Experience

I created this website to offer travel advice, activity reviews, resort opinions and first-hand information about vacations in Mexico. We have enjoyed our Riviera Maya holidays so much that I think it's only right to share.

We were initially enticed to visit the region because of the impressive range of exciting amenities. We were enchanted by the beautiful crystal clear water beaches. We also looked forward to exploring the ancient archaeological sites (Chichen Itza is truly amazing) and we could not wait for the opportunity to enjoy snorkeling in the Caribbean Sea.

There are just so many exciting activities to keep you busy and new places to see and explore. On the other hand if you just wish to unwind, then what better place is there to top up your tan and enjoy the beautiful weather than the tempting panoramic beaches.

Finding the Hidden Gems

We soon learned however, that there was so much more to discover throughout Riviera Maya Mexico than this, there is so much depth and awareness that is never fully covered in the glossy holiday brochures.

For example, we were really impressed by the fascinating origins of the Olmecs, Aztecs and Mayans and the traditional festivals and customs of Mexico Culture.

There are many historical sites in Quintana Roo and the Yucatan Peninsula and many outstanding areas of natural beauty and biodiversity. If you get the chance to explore any of the ancient ruins or naturally cultivated geographical locations then I'm confident that you'll be as equally impressed as we were.

Feel free to explore the site, you can find a wide range of useful information about the area, including our advice about popular attractions and hotel reviews. Check out the location guides and destination travel tips or delve into the mysterious events of the history and culture in the region.
