Dive Into Riviera Maya

This tropical haven is a magical world filled with mystery, beauty and ancient traditions, along with sugar-white sands and swoon-worthy views of nature’s most unique and beautiful landforms. If you want to splish splash around like the Mayans, Xel-Ha is open for swimming and snorkeling through two of the largest subterranean rivers in the world. If you want to time travel, then you must visit Xcaret Ecological Park. This eco-archaeological locale once served as a central port of trade and navigation for the ancient Mayans, but in the 21st century, it’s your day-long play station: you can snorkel in protected inlets, observe exotic animals and in the evening, watch a show that’s bursting with color, music and folklore. For more nature-centric stuff to do, you’ll want to visit the region’s numerous ecological preserves. After you’ve spent time in the past, come back to the present–there are several towns in the Riviera Maya that are poppin’ with tons of fantastic things to do: shopping, dining, museum-ing, throwing back a few tequila shots. Time to dive in.

Riviera Maya Overview

  • Mapping Out Mexico

    Starting on the east coast, Cancun’s got an epic party scene. Cozumel is the mecca for diving and snorkeling. On the west coast, if you’re into adventure, head to Mazatlan to explore historic ruins or hit Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo for a similar vibe, but a bit more upscale. For those who want to escape into the wilds of nature, Huatulco and Mazanillo are your places to explore. Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos have majestic mountains that kiss their beachy shores, along with amazing golf courses, breathtaking resorts and stunning beaches. But Cabo, situated at the tip of Baja, where the shimmering Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific, not only has a hip party scene, it also has the iconic Los Arcos, where you can slow down and let the beguiling magic of Mexico wash over you.

    Antiquity Fix: Tulum

    Gotta love those mystical Mayans. They continue to be one of the most awe-inspiring cultures from the ancient world. One of the most iconic examples of these mysterious people is Tulum, a pre-Columbian city that was the major port for Coba between the 13th and 15th centuries, where one of the top trades was, of all things, obsidian–volcanic glass. Grab your walking shoes and get ready to meander around 60 well-preserved structures that are cloistered behind a big stone wall. After you’ve learned about all the enigmatic deities in their culture, marveled at how they constructed such an intricate, sturdy maze, take the staircase down to the sugar-white, sandy beach hugged by turquoise waves and cool off.

    Xciting Stuff: Xcaret and Xel-ha

    More Mayan goodness can be found at these spots. Back in the day (and we’re talking waaay back), Xcaret was once a Mayan port for departures to Cozumel. Since then, it’s evolved into a one-stop shop for exploring the ecology and culture of this unique area with 40 natural attractions: a butterfly pavilion, a beautiful coral reef aquarium, along with a funky cone-shaped Mayan cemetery. Afterwards, you can chill at the beach, swim with dolphins–or even sharks. Xel-ha, known as “the place where water is born,” is an incredible natural aquarium where the ocean and freshwater currents combine to create springs and underground rivers. While it may not be the exact birthplace of water, you'll seriously dig snorkeling and splashing through this rockin’ ecosystem of exotic birds, marine life and other animals. Don’t miss Sea Trek, where with the help of a specialized helmet, you can walk (and breathe) under water on the seabed–without any previous training–and ogle all the ocean eye candy.

    Sea Turtles of Akumal

    These are not just ordinary turtles. They’re endangered green sea turtles. They can weigh up to 700 pounds and live until they’re 80. Their favorite thing to eat is sea grass and it’s found all over the bottom of the ocean floor. And they spend a good long time chowing down, so you can swim up and get a good look at them. Other passersby, like barracudas and sting rays, can be seen after you’ve taken the plunge, so bring your underwater camera and snag some fabulous photos.

Tips & Transportation

  • Modern Mexican: Gitano

    One of the hautest spots on this part of the Yucatan, this nosh spot boasts an open-fire grill and wood-burning oven. The menu includes snacks like luscious gorditas made from Oaxaca cheese and epazote. Small plates like grilled avocado, seasoned with aromatic salt, ponzu and almonds. Large plates like whole roasted fish with tomatillo salsa and cilantro. Desserts include guava cheesecake with amaranth graham cracker crust and raspberries. If you think this sounds delicious, wait until you experience the intoxicating atmosphere (and we’re not talking just the drinks). You’ll dine outside in a magical, open-air setting with the flora as your ceiling. Sparkly lights are hung from the trees, the drinks are stellar and the vibe is effortlessly chic.
  • Tres Chic: Tulum

    Least you think Tulum is just a boring lot of dusty ruins, you’d be wrong. This iconic edifice on a towering cliff has blossomed into a haven–a backdrop–for hipsters from all over the world. You can thank many New Yorkers who have come in and converted a wild tangle of roots and trees into eco-boho-crunchy meccas, aka Soho in the Jungle. Gourmet spots, toney boutiques, green smoothie stands and yoga pants aplenty can be found in this tropical earth heaven. Bike riding is also the thing to do here and how everyone gets around.
  • ""

    Cool Off: Beach Below the Ruins

    After you’ve made the trek all around this imposing, vast Mayan complex and learned about all the half-human, half-animal deities, marveled at the meticulously sculpted corners of buildings and watched the iguanas bravely guard their scaly harem, you’ll be very happy to head down the stairs to the beach just below the ruins. The water is pure heaven: clear blue, perfect temp and refreshing beyond words.
  • ""

    Live it Up on Day of the Dead

    Day of the Dead, otherwise known as Halloween most everywhere else, is a big, big party in Riviera Maya full of festivals and parades. But it’s not like your typical trick or treat thing: it lasts from October 31 to November 2. On October 31, All Hallows Eve, the children make altars and invite spirits of angelitos (the dead children) to visit. November 1, All Saints Day, the adults come to visit. And November 2, All Souls Day, is when families go to the graves to decorate those of their loved ones who have passed on. But it’s far from somber. All over this tropical wonderland, you’ll see faces painted, people in costumes and shrines set up to honor those they’ve lost. A totally unique experience to witness!

    Hunt for Treasure: CEDAM Museum

    Beaching with the kiddos is always a blast, but sometimes with their limited attention spans, you might need some help. Enter, shipwrecks– sunken treasures and mysteries of the deep at the CEDAM Subaquatic Museum. Here, your munchkins can become engrossed in artifacts recovered from ship wrecks around the area that were discovered by early pioneers of diving, along with awesome relics from pirates, wenches and marine warfare.

    Getting to Your Hotel

    Some travelers often have concerns about vacationing in Mexico. For the past several years, Cheapcaribbean.com has partnered with Amstar as our premier transportation company to provide safe, comfortable and professional transportation for our clients from the airport to and from your hotel and back. They’ll also provide transportation to any excursions booked through our site that you’d like to take while you’re in your destination.
