With white sands lined with coconut trees, and the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, Riviera Maya is a true paradise, with a stunning coastline waiting to be explored.

Riviera Maya holidays bring you to the stunning Mexican Caribbean coast, home to some of the best diving sites in the world, and famous for being a playground for watersports fans. Couple this with ancient cultural attractions and historical highlights, and you have one of the most colourful regions in Mexico.

Your guide to Riviera Maya holidays

Time to explore


The beaches of Riviera Maya are beautiful and well-kept, with smooth sands and clear blue waters. Best of all, many beaches are close to handy amenities, with plenty of options to shop, eat, and drink.

  • The main beach of Puerto Morelos is hugely popular because it’s so convenient, located very close to the centre of town. As one of the biggest and best beaches in Riviera Maya, this beach is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy a great day out, and benefits from having easy entry to the water.
  • To the north and south of the main beach, you’ll find smaller stretches of sand owned by local beachfront hotels. The Azul Beach Resort Riviera Maya, for example, boasts its own beach (and comes with private butler service, too!), and many other top coastal hotels offer a similar beachfront setup.
  • Whichever beach you choose, you’ll find the waters are excellent for snorkelling. With the coast being a protected National Marine Park, there’s a whole host of colourful underwater life not far from the beach, including turtles and exotic fish species. You may even spot a dolphin if you’re lucky!
Riviera Maya...from the water

Riviera Maya...from the water

  • Riviera Maya is a popular place for enthusiastic divers. Whether you’re a complete beginner wanting to learn the ropes in shallow waters, or you’re an experienced diver looking to delve deep in search of endemic wildlife, the local seas provide endless watery exploration for dedicated thrill seekers.
  • It’s also possible to explore the waters of Riviera Maya without going too deep. Cenote swimming is a top activity here, giving you a unique opportunity to swim in naturally formed holes in the limestone rock that open into deep wells of fresh water, purified by algae and creating a truly unique place to swim.
