Mexico's Riviera Maya: A Beautiful Beach Resort
by Barry deCocq
Travelers who are looking for a fantastic all-inclusive resort
destination that is priced far below most tropical destinations
in and around the Caribbean should look into Mexicos Riviera
Maya. This area has fast become a very popular tropical vacation
getaway for travelers from around the world. The Riviera Maya
is located on the Caribbean side of Mexico and encompasses the
stretch of coastline ranging from about 5 miles to 60 miles
south of Cancun.
Dont be misled into thinking that because you fly into
Cancun to get to the Riviera Maya that it is anything like Cancun
and its spring break, party-like atmosphere
it is far from
it. The Riviera Maya has been set aside by the Mexican government
as a semi-protected area, and as such it cannot become the touristy,
high-rise resort type of destination you find in the Cancun
hotel zone. Resorts can only be built 3-stories or less in height
and they have to be constructed to embrace the surrounding vegetation,
wildlife, and topography. It is a much more family-friendly
and romantic vacation destination.
Resorts in the Riviera Maya are primarily all-inclusive properties.
Because of the remote locations of many of the properties there
are very few offsite dining areas. All-inclusive resorts give
the traveler the benefit of having everything paid for prior
to their arrival. All meals, drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic),
non-motorized watersports, and other amenities are included
in package prices. The more upscale all-inclusive resorts of
4-star and higher quality typically have many different restaurant
options ranging from buffet to world-class a la carte cuisine
Some of the more popular resort chains in the Riviera Maya include
Iberostar Resorts, Palace Resorts, and Secrets Resorts &
Spas. Resorts run anywhere from more family-related types of
properties or resorts for the budget-minded to very upscale
adults-only spa resorts.
One of the best reasons to choose the Mexico Riviera Maya for
your next vacation is not just for the superb quality resorts
and great value, but also for the fantastic tours and excursions
that are available in around the Yucatan Peninsula region. This
area is teeming with Mayan ruins and ancient architecture that
are very popular with tourists. The most majestic of the local
Mayan ruins are the pyramids of Chichen Itza. These incredibly
preserved pyramids date back to 400AD and this awe-inspiring
tour will leave with you many wonderful memories. There are
many other Mayan ruins tours you can take as well. In addition
to ruins you can also experience many eco-based tours that take
you to game and marine preserves where you will find amazing
wildlife and snorkeling that is nothing short of amazing. Another
popular day-trip for those staying in the Riviera Maya region
is the island of Cozumel. You can reach this quaint island by
ferry from the town of Playa del Carmen located in the heart
of the Riviera Maya. It is a short 45 minute ferry ride and
once there you will find duty-free shopping, great dining, and
some of the worlds best SCUBA diving and snorkeling.
If you have taken tropical vacations in the Caribbean or Hawaii
and are looking for a new destination to visit, the Riviera
Maya is an excellent choice that will definitely impress and
have you ready to come back to again and again.
