The Mayan Riviera - Mexico

Welcome to the Mayan Riviera located along the Caribbean Coast of Mexico! Discover romantic, intimate small hotels & resorts and find your adventure, fun and pleasure in Mexico... Book your hotel online in Playa del Carmen, Akumal, Isla Mujeres, Tulum, Puerto Morelos and Cozumel!Immediately south of Cancun along Highway 307, is the area popularly known as the Cancun - Tulum Corridor. The road runs parallel to the Caribbean and almost every turnoff to the left affords access to a magnificent site - be it a pristine white beach fringed by palm trees, a Mayan ruin surrounded by jungle, a sleepy fishing village or a luxury waterfront development. The best way to explore the area is by car, although bus service between downtown Cancun and Tulum is efficient.

Our routes take us to the land of the ancient Maya and their modern day descendants, a unique journey both in time and travel. We travel through the varied countryside into ancient worlds of Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, to view the colorful inhabitants, lush jungles, and remote regions of a once-great civilization whose demise is still cloaked in mystery.
