Why go to the Riviera Maya

If ancient temples and luxurious all-inclusive hotels are your thing, you’ve come to the right place. With white-sand beaches, a turquoise sea and a lush jungle-clad interior, the Riviera Maya is the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure.

Stretching down Mexico’s Caribbean coastline, the Riviera Maya is every inch a tropical paradise. Expect laid-back beach resorts, hidden by jungle surrounds, iridescent coral reefs teeming with life and beaches so blissful, your dreams couldn’t do much better. Throw some of Mexico’s most spectacular ruins into the mix, and you’ve got the makings of an unforgettable holiday. From cliff-top temples, to tree-shrouded pyramids, you’ll find also ancient Mayan relics scattered across the Yucatan Peninsula.

Planning to party? Head to Playa del Carmen: a beachfront resort that’s jam-packed with lively cocktail bars and nightclubs that keep the tunes pumping until the early hours. For boho beach bars, hit up hippie-cum-hipster haunt, Tulum.

Of course, the highlight of any holiday in the Riviera Maya is the beaches. You can easily lose hours flopped on a sunbed, sipping margaritas and eating fresh fish tacos – the weather’s hot year-round and tacos are always in season.

When you need to cool down, take a dip in a cenote. These subterranean swimming spots are a unique feature of the area. If caves are not your thing, meet the wildlife instead. From barracuda to butterfly fish, you won’t ever have a dull dive in the Riviera Maya. Just make sure you plan your visit for whale shark season.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
