The Riviera Maya stretches along 75 miles of Mexico’s Caribbean coast and with beautiful warm sunshine, idyllic white-sand beaches and electric-blue waters, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax on an idyllic luxury vacation.
While you’re here, swim with turtles in Akumal, see flamingos in the lagoons on Isla Holbox, visit the famous Mayan ruins of Tulum, and explore Rio Secreto, a fascinating labyrinth of underground passageways and cenotes. Experience both laid-back fishing towns and the buzzing nightlife of Playa del Carmen, which also offers attractive stretches of palm tree-lined beaches.
Active visitors can give all manner of water sports a go, or head to Isla Mujeres for fantastic diving and snorkelling. This picturesque island was a Mayan sanctuary to goddess Ixchel for a thousand years, and off its shores lie some beautiful coral reefs and marine life. At particular times of the year, even whale sharks can be spotted here.
Along the way, stay at beautiful boutique hotels with white sands and turquoise waters on the doorstep and lush tropical jungles as a backdrop.
