Travel to Mexico's Riviera Maya By Markin Abras and Adriana Garuolis Miami Living takes you on a journey to “Riviera Maya’’ located in the Yucatan Peninsula – an area in southeastern Mexico that separates the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Known for its white sands, turquoise sea and blue skies, it is an area hosting several notable archaeological sites, cenotes (a natural underground pool), rich cuisine, relaxation, meditation, yoga, spas, numerous water activities and luxury stays. We start out by exploring Playa Del Carmen, then a stop to Valladolid to explore the Mayan pyramids of Chichén Itzá and a final stop in Tulum, a city known for its eco-chic bohemian atmosphere. ACCESS Travelling to Riviera Maya from Miami is very convenient. Fly non-stop from Miami to Cancun in less than 2 hours, rent a car and get ready for a memorable road trip. If you prefer not to drive, private car services can be easily arranged from hotels. Non-stop flights are available from American Airlines, JetBlue, Frontier and Spirit. WHY RIVIERA MAYA? Riviera Maya runs along the coast from Cancun to Tulum hosting numerous must-see attractions. Most notably are UNESCO World Heritage sites such as the Mayan pyramids of Chichén Itzá and Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve including ancient ruins and archeological sites. Riviera Maya is also known for its blue-green transparent beaches and underground cenotes, caves and rivers. Enjoy every type of fun activity imaginable like scuba diving, parasailing, snorkeling, zip-lining, jungle exploration, tennis, golf and much more. Wellness activities include yoga, breath and sound healing therapies as well as signature holistic and energetic treatments. Traditional Mexican cuisine can be found virtually in all restaurants in the Riviera Maya featuring traditional ingredients which have been used for centuries, such as Mayan spinach, maize, beans, squash, a variety of chilies, freshly caught seafood, porridge, and papadzules.
