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.
