Mexico's Vacation Coast with the Most
Riviera Maya Overview
From ancient cities to trendy beach clubs, and thatch-rooted cottages to five-star resorts, the 70-mile expanse of Mexico's coastline known as the Riviera Maya has it all. The town of Tulum radiates new-age and backpacker's vibes, the seaside promenades of Playa del Carmen deliver a Continental accent, and the Cancun strip is pure indulgence. Some come for high-energy clubbing, shopping and beach culture, others soak in the mellow vibes of smaller seaside villages, or up the adventure quotient with snorkel drifts through underground rivers, zipline flights across jungle water holes, kayak expeditions into mangrove lagoons and up-close encounters with big fish.
