Mayan Riviera

Mapper » Mexico, Central America & Caribbean » Mexico & Central America » Mexico » Mayan Riviera

 

The Mayan Riviera stretches for 75 miles of the Mexican Caribbean coastline in the southeastern part of of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The area starts approximately 10 miles south of Cancun at the seaside village of Puerto Morelos and includes places like Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Akumal, and Tulum, ending in the town of Carrillo Puerto.

Among its most spectacular features is Tulum, a small Mayan temple for the Mayan royalty, clergy and gods in a seaside setting with beautiful beaches just below.

The best times to visit the temple ruins is early in the morning or late in afternoon, to avoid the crowds.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Natural
Unusual Local Feature

Cenotes

During much of the year, rainwater collects in a system of underground caves and tunnels. Where these tunnels reach the surface, they are known as cenotes. Cenotes usually allow swimming and diving, and at some you can rent related equipment. They contain fresh water, which is often cool since they are shaded in most cases. Cenotes allow close-up access to fauna such as fish, turtles, and in some cases, bats.
Diving
Diving options includes both ocean diving and cavern diving in the cenotes.
