CAR_Imprescindibles de la Riviera maya

The Mayan Riviera in Mexico stretches along the Caribbean coast, on the eastern part of the Yucatan Peninsula. It includes the area between Puerto Morelos and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. What used to be a series of fisherman’s villages is now a tourist corridor with luxury hotels and resorts, top category restaurants, places with bustling nightlife, exclusive spa facilities, shopping centers and golf courses.

The Mayan Riviera has some of the largest and most beautiful beaches in Mexico, famous for their fine, white sand and gently rocked by the turquoise hues of the Caribbean Sea.
