Ancient ruins and modern beach resorts

The Riviera Maya features more than 161km of Caribbean coastline along the Yucatan Peninsula, yet it offers a lot more besides the allure of the beach. The sheer variety of attractions and leisure pursuits is what makes a holiday here so special. There are superb ancient Mayan ruins to explore and some great shopping and nightlife to experience. But the buzz on the peninsula is outshone only by the inviting crystalline waters and coral reef that await offshore: the Riviera Maya is firmly established as one of the great global dive spots.

No matter whether you’re snorkelling in the shallows or diving the depths, the unspoiled reef system is an underwater mystery waiting to unfold. The warm Caribbean waters beckon, and they’re home to manta ray, dolphin and whale shark. But the diving doesn’t stop there. You can take a dip in one of the cenotes, spectacular sinkholes which pepper the area, and were considered sacred by the Maya.

The Mayan ruins and sites can also be explored above the ground. Tulum, Coba and El Rey are among Mexico’s most magnificent, offering unique insights into a lost civilisation stretching back 2,000 years.

Let A&K help you to create your perfect bespoke holiday on the Riviera Maya.
