Probably the most outstanding feature of the Riviera Maya is the Caribbean Sea with its various turquoise shades and white sandy beaches. If you like snorkeling or diving, you will love it here: The world’s second largest barrier reef runs right along the coast.  But also the numerous cenotes (freshwater lakes and underground river system) are great for snorkeling and diving.

The variety of things you can experience here is almost unbeatable: From archaeological sites and rich history, charming Mayan villages, nature & wild life, culinary diversity to the cheerful people of today.

The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 and is a paradise for ornithologists. The Bacalar Lagoon is known for its seven different shades of blue and is a popular place for geologists to study the rare rock formations formed by photosynthesis.

Or are you ready for the island? Visit Cozumel – one of the five best dive sites in the world, or Isla Mujeres with its Caribbean charm, or the quieter islands of Contoy and Holbox.

The most famous archaeological site of the Yucatan Peninsula is Chichen Itza. It is considered one of the Seven Modern World Wonders and is a pilgrimage place for thousands of visitors for the equinoxes. The ancient city of Cobá, once an important trade hub, is situated in the middle of the jungle. The Tulum Temple was built right by the ocean and served as a calendar to indicate important dates.  The ruins of Ek Balam are lesser known, but you will be surprised about the excellent condition of some of the murals. A hot insider tip!
