Our Special Readings
10 experiences to enjoy the Riviera Maya
It is no secret that the Yucatan Peninsula and especially the Riviera Maya has become the largest destination in Mexico. Attracted by the endless white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea tourists are becoming more and more numerous each year. Some are attracted by the Mayan ruins and others of ecotourism that can be practiced in this area of the South of the country. But here are our 10 unforgettable experiences that we recommend to those who plan to spend a holiday on the Riviera Maya.
Americans usually spend the period of spring break on the beaches and in the clubs of Cancun. For Europeans it is not the favorite destination, since it is very far from the idea of a Caribbean destination, with its waterfront skyscrapers and its noisy disco-bars full of drunken youngsters. This does not mean that the sea is spectacular and that the beaches are very long and wonderful. One reason to make a stop in Cancun is for the cultural activities that are emerging in recent years and which are attracting even new tourists.
The Maya knew a lot about landscapes and it is right on the seashore of Tulum that in the XIII century they built one of the most spectacular buildings, now in ruins, that can be visited in Mexico.
Just half an hour’s boat ride from Cancun in the open sea you can meet Isla Mujeres, a corner of peace and relaxation away from the noise of the city. It is worth visiting the turtle breeding, a sanctuary that annually hosts up to 60.000 specimens. A dip in these turquoise waters is incredible.
Yucatan Peninsula: rich of ingredients for a gorgeous holiday
Ancient Mayan ruins, white sand beaches and frozen margaritas, you’ll find all this on the Yucatan Peninsula, the most famous tourist destination of Mexico. Home to spectacular biosphere reserves and breathtaking underwater caves, this region of Mexico is a haven for nature lovers, while crowded markets and colorful colonial cities make it a fascinating destination for culture devotees. Add to all this some of the best diving in the world, delicious ceviche and a background of bright blue seas, and you’ll have all the ingredients for an unforgettable holiday.
Plan your trip
When planning a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, timing is crucial. Although this corner of Mexico is wonderful all year round, every season has its challenges and its advantages. The rainy season runs from June to October, while from December to April it is the busiest. Prices are at their best during the winter holidays and spring break, but start to drop significantly after Easter. Although rich in tourists, from mid-June to the end of August it coincides with the whale shark season, so if swimming with these incredible sea creatures is on your travel wish list, here you can do this extraordinary experience. Probably, the best time to visit the Yucatan is November, when the crowds are lower and the weather is pleasantly dry and cool.
Discover a Cenote
The Yucatan Peninsula offers a myriad of adventures, but none of it is comparable to swimming or diving in a cenote. The region is famous for these suggestive underground natural pools, considered by the Maya as spiritual wells or portals for other worlds, and there are thousands scattered throughout the peninsula. Among the most popular are Ik-Kil near Chichén Itzá, Dos Ojos near Tulum, as well as Xkeken and the very Instagram-photogenic Cenote Samulá, both in the small town of Dzitnup. Valladolid and Cuzamá are also home to some spectacular sinkholes, and each offers to visitors, a unique experience.
5 reasons to explore Playa del Carmen
Playa del Carmen is home to some of Mexico’s most exotic locales, with palm trees dotting miles of beaches, lush jungles and ancient Mayan ruins all waiting to be explored. For the VIP traveler looking for a little adventure, Playa del Carmen has many thrilling options available. Here are five ways to get the white-glove treatment while participating in exciting experiences:
Swim With Whale Sharks
Though whale sharks are the largest creatures in the animal kingdom (they have mouths that measure about 1,5 mt wide!), they are notably placid and only eat plankton. Their gentle demeanor makes them perfect companions to swim with, even allowing some divers to catch a ride on top of them. Booking a private snorkeling tour will take you on a fully catered trip out to Isla Mujeres, where you’ll be introduced to a local marine biologist and a personal guide.
Visit the Sian Ka’an Natural Reserve
Sian Ka’an is a biosphere nature reserve located about an hour south of Playa del Carmen. Meaning “Origin of the Sky” in the Mayan language, the reserve was created in 1986 to support conservation projects regarding local ecosystems and sustainability. Visitors to Sian Ka’an are given unrivaled views of the Caribbean coast, as well as a view of Mexican wildlife such as crocodiles, dolphins, and sea turtles. The VIP tour of this UNESCO World Heritage site includes a snorkeling session in the barrier reef, followed by a gourmet seafood lunch and complimentary bottle of Champagne.
Special City Guide: Playa del Carmen
Young adventuresome travelers have long been attracted to the eclectic Playa del Carmen beach scene, but it’s no longer a budget haven with seaside campgrounds and inexpensive eateries. In fact, Playa del Carmen is one of Mexico’s fastest growing cities, with sprawling neighborhoods on both sides of the highway and nearly every big-box store you can imagine. Fortunately, Playa still retains a beach vibe, which combines with a cosmopolitan ethos to create a distinctly European feel. Many of the earliest hotel and restaurants owners moved to Playa from Italy, so there’s no shortage of great pasta and vino. These days, restaurants serve everything from sushi to foie gras, and shops carry Balinese figurines and Brazilian bikinis. Playa’s La Quinta (Fifth Avenue) is the coast’s social magnet, with browse-worthy shops and plenty of bars and restaurants studding the pedestrian promenade.
This bustling town is fronted with several beaches popular with families, scenesters, and fishermen alike. Bury your toes in white sand and sip an umbrella drink, stopping occasionally to frolic in Playa’s turquoise water. You can dive or snorkel through the cenotes (underwater caves) at Hidden World Cenotes, spend an afternoon fishing or boating at the Puerto Aventuras marina, or arrange for a horseback ride on the beach through Rancho Punta Venado.
