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.
