Riviera Maya Regional Overview
There is mile after mile of deserted champagne-white Caribbean beaches and barely a cloud to be seen all year around (except for during hurricane season!). Accommodation is plentiful and it can provide every traveller with the experience they seek, from the all-inclusive 5 star luxury resorts to small-scale hostels with just a few beds.

You can do all of the above and more in the Riviera Maya – it really has everything.
Holidaymakers can stay in any one of a number of towns all of which differ in their atmosphere, culture and spirit. From the super-chic Playa del Carmen and Tulum to the relaxed and tiny laid back fishing village of Puerto Morelos.
