Riviera Maya

Riviera Maya.jpg

Mexico’s most famous stretch of coast runs 100 miles south from Cancun to Tulum and is home not just to stunning, elegant coastal retreats, but also laid-back offshore islands and beautiful wildlife reserves.

This tropical, sun-baked coastline is what most people think of when they consider Mexico, with its idyllic white sand, palm-fringed beaches and crystal-clear azure waters. The world’s second largest offshore coral reef ensures that the snorkelling and diving here are second to none, and the Riviera Maya tucks away along its length a number of stunningly beautiful and exclusive coastal retreats and private villas for those with a hankering for luxurious relaxation. If you want to explore the even more laidback vibe of this region, take a ferry across to small islands off the coast, like Holbox, from where you can go swimming with whale sharks or simply lounge in a hammock with a cerveza. Protected parts of this glorious coastline reveal spectacular mangroves perfect for bird-watching, fishing and kayaking, such as the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve close to the Belizean border.
