When you're seeking luxury at every turn, head to Riviera Maya where high-end resorts, fine dining opportunities and stylish beach clubs cater to discerning travellers. It's easy to sunbathe the day away on Playa del Carmen's pristine stretches of sugar-white sand. But dive below the clear azure waters and you'll discover a breathtaking array of marine life, from vibrant tropical fish to whale sharks and manta rays swimming through coral networks. Inland, the Mayan Riviera's ecological diversity continues to impress with nature reserves that are well protected. The ancient Mayan port city of Tulum is a must-do day excursion, and the UNESCO recognized pyramids of Chichen Itza are within easy reach.Read more
