The Riviera Maya, a travellers corridor of white-sand beaches, picturesque remains and enjoyable cenotes (limestone pockets), was made for road-touring. Yes, it's developing quickly, too quick some would say, but in spite of all the growth, you could still discover that tiny fishing town or travel inside to get a look of the Mexico that tourism overlooked.
If it's celebrations you want, you'll find severe pleasure in the city of Playa del Carmen. Playa still outshines quickly developing Tulum as the Riviera's craziest city, but it's doesn’t have a thing on Tulum's striking Maya remains sitting high over the beach.
Even if you are going about by car or bus, getting from one town to the other is a simple – after all, the Riviera is just 135km of shore that extends south from Puerto Morelos to Tulum. Everything's so nearby that you could go swimming during the day in Puerto Morelos and still have time to go to Tulum for a romantic dinner.
The Riviera Maya is popular for its huge range of all-inclusive hotels and an ancient tourism center of tinier boutique hotels and also the various exquisite restaurants found down the highway 307 or next to the beaches. Pursuits at the many toured sites comprise of scuba diving, swimming in cenotes, jet-skiing, snorkeling, sailing, horse riding, guided forest excursions, zip-lining and swimming with dolphins.
