A naturally amazing encounter with the Caribbean

The Riviera Maya is a stunning stretch of Caribbean coastline south of Cancun, extending from Puerto Morelos to Punta Allen on the eastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. The former village of Playa del Carmen offers plenty of things to do as the now-cosmopolitan heart of the Riviera Maya. This is where visitors stay at some of Mexico's most exclusive resorts, which are a short distance away from incredible adventures. Start it all off with world-class transportation from Cancun International Airport to your favorite Riviera Maya resort.

A visit to the Riviera Maya means lounging on beaches whose white sands are cool to the touch even under the hottest sun. It also means experiencing a universe of adventure with many tours and activities in the Riviera Maya. Venture out into those beaches' turquoise waters aboard a luxury catamaran, and sail along the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, one of the most diverse and marvelous coral reefs on the entire planet. Get a closer look by jumping in and snorkeling around vividly colorful fish, and don't be surprised if a friendly sea turtle swims next to you. 

Should you prefer land and freshwater, the area has you covered. The Riviera Maya's water activities include excursions along an intricate system of caves and underground rivers. These create the world-renowned cenotes (freshwater sinkholes) that provide a mix of relaxation and adrenaline in the middle of the jungle. You can snorkel and zip line over the open water cenotes, or even go below ground and take a guided excursion inside these mythical subterranean rivers.

The area also hosts life-changing encounters at its Mayan kingdoms, where majestic temples pay tribute to the gods that ruled over these mystical people centuries ago. The archaeological site of Tulum will amaze you with its well-preserved structures built over a cliff that opens up to the Caribbean Sea. Not far from there, Coba is set inside the Mayan jungle with one of the tallest pyramids in the entire peninsula — climb to the zenith and absorb a 360-degree view of the breathtaking canopy! For the VIPs, keep in mind that the Riviera Maya offers private excursions of these archaeological wonders, allowing visitors to only be with family and friends in private transportation under the care of a private guide.

Of course, the daredevils and thrill-seekers will also find Riviera Maya outdoor activities to get their dose of adrenaline. Adventures like zip lining and ATV riding are just part of the jungle of exhilaration in the Mexican Caribbean. Guests also visit the activity parks by Xcaret group, perfectly combining nature with culture and excitement over water, land, air, and even fire! These are only some of the best ideas for family excursions in the Riviera Maya, as there are many more. Even more, the area is a premier destination for world-class meetings and events thanks to an award-winning team of professionals. The only thing you can't do at the Riviera Maya is be bored. This dream destination has everything you need, so let Amstar DMC lead you there.
