Always wondered where to take breath taking instagram and Snapchat pictures? Look no further. Riviera Maya has it all! White sand beaches, turquoise colored sea, rivers and blue Gatorade colored cenotes.
An Instagram junkie DREAM!
The Mayan Riviera is located in the Caribbean coastline of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo at the southeast of Mexico and is one of our favorite place to go relax! The Rivera Maya is a combination of culture and nature that embrace the Mayan ancestral culture, waiting for you to visit.
It is not a tourist destination as developed as Cancun but you will also find luxury and comfort places to stay and eat.
When asked, when is the best time to go, I would answer- when is not a good time to go! Riviera Maya has great weather year-round and fantastic places to visit.
Our favorite Hotels to stay at are:
- NIZUC Resort & Spa
- GRAND VELLAS
- BANYAN TREE
When it comes to food, we would recommend you try these restaurants when wandering out of the hotel and indulge in the Mayans culinary art.
ALUX RESTAURANT & LOUNGE
is located in a cenote, be sure to come out of it with a one of a kind experience and pictures
surrounded by unique Frida’s picture, this restaurant presents its food in fun and creative ways to make your experience memorable.
LA CASA DEL AGUA
features Italian inspired fare with Mexican flavors. Who would say no to pasta with a side of tapas and margaritas?
Riviera Maya is not only good for couple vacations, but is also a fantastic location for family trips. You can enjoy incredible activities such as swimming in underground rivers, zip-lining, snorkeling among tropical fish and turtles and much more.
Our favorite are X-CARET, XEL HA and AKUMAL
For those of you wanting to enjoy a drink or two after a great day at the beach, accompanied with some great music, we would recommend you to go check out COCO BONGO and MANDALA CLUB.
You won’t be disappointed!
