The Mayan Riviera stretches down the coast from Cancun to Tulum and is a delightful area of beautiful white sandy beaches and warm turquoise seas.
There are a few little hamlets and small port towns dotted throughout and a huge number of all-inclusive resorts have sprung up over the years but the hotels we have selected tend to be in the more peaceful serene areas perfect for relaxation with the beach at your doorstep. This is the perfect spot to end a busy itinerary. Please note it can often be pretty windy along the peninsula, particularly from November-March.
