Mayan Riviera Vacations

The Mayan Riviera (also referred to as "Riviera Maya") is an area that begins approximately one and a half hours south of the Cancun airport. It includes smaller developments along the Yucatan Peninsula coastline, such as Playa del Carmen, Xcaret, Calica, Puerto Aventuras, and Tulum. One of the main reasons to choose an all-inclusive Mayan Riviera vacation package is the great variety of options that appeal to all tastes. Whether you prefer isolation and serenity, action-packed sporting activities, or discovering a world of Mayan Kings and culture, there’s a Mayan Riviera vacation package to suit your needs. 

Getting Around: For those wishing to explore off of the resort during their Mayan Riviera holiday, a rental car is the best option. Otherwise, the relative isolation can make mobility difficult. Taxis offer another option, but distances to desired destinations can be considerable, and fares may add up. 

Where to Stay: You have many hotel resort options available to you when booking holiday. From the 3-star Riu Lupita to the 5-star Barcelo Maya Palace, we have a vacation package for every fancy. 

Weather: The Mayan Riviera is blessed with warm tropical weather, making it a great destination for your package holiday. Maximum temperatures typically range between 26C and 33C in the day, and between 18C and 25C at night, with the greatest rainfall typically peaking in the months of July to August. Hurricane season typically lasts from July through December, peaking from mid-August to mid-December. 

Attractions: Major sightseeing attractions include the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Xcaret, Tulum, and Xel-ha, where you can walk in the footsteps of Mayan Kings and marvel at ancient pyramids on your holiday. Playa del Carmen is also worth exploring. From there, a ferry ride to Cozumel opens up even greater opportunities for discovery.
