Unlimited Vacation Club suggests visiting one of our many resorts in the Maya Riviera. The Mayan Riviera is a magical piece of tropical paradise nestled into the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Whether you are looking for a relaxing place to enjoy pampering along with your beach views, or you are a hearty soul in search of your next big travel adventure, the Mayan Riviera has something for you.
Unlimited Vacation Club Suggest Exploring this Great Mayan Ruin
Visiting Chichen Itzá is an unforgettable experience and a must-do on any trip to this area of Mexico. Here you will witness history in the form of gorgeous Mayan ruins that have stood at Chichen for thousands of years. There is a nominal fee for entrance to the site, and you can enjoy wandering it on your own or book a tour if you’d like to learn more about the history behind this place that many consider an 8th Wonder of the World.
Cancun is a popular destination in the Mayan Rivera, famed for its turquoise beaches and wealth of clubs and upscale shopping. It’s also home to the one-of-a-kind Musa Underwater Museum. If you have a scuba license, you can dive right in, but there is also a snorkeling option for non-divers. You might also want to check out the view from above on one of the many local zipline tours.
For more adventurous swimmers, swimming in a cenote is a can’t-miss experience! These gorgeous natural “swimming holes” are sinkholes, nestled in between the walls of a cave. Most are freshwater and all play host to a beautiful assortment of water wildlife. Cenotes are deep, but they are the water. It is not particularly rough. You can explore a cenote on your own or as part of a tour, and snorkel rental is available around many of these sites.
Xcaret park is another can’t-miss attraction. This one-of-a-kind eco-archeological park is located just south of Playa Del Carman and features more than forty interactive “exhibits” that celebrate and teach about the history of Mexico, its people, and its wildlife. Children will also love this immersive experience, which allows them to explore jungle ruins, snorkel in a river, or even visits an aviary featuring some of Mexico’s wildest feathered friends.
If you want to experience more of Mexico’s rich traditional culture, the town of Tulum, also located within an hour of Playa Del Carman, should be a top destination. This town is steeped in history and offers beautiful views. And as a bonus, you’ll be hard-pressed to find better traditional Mexican food anywhere else!
Of course, the Mayan Riviera, like Playa Del Carmen is also known for its thriving nightlife scene. Located just a short drive away, Cancun has everything you could ask for and more. Large Clubs like the Coco Bongo rival anything you can find on the Las Vegas strip. But if you prefer a more personal or low-key experience, there are plenty of quiet restaurants and nightspots where you can enjoy a relaxing drink and more traditional music. Lots of nightclubs also feature local talent, giving you a taste of the area’s rich culture.
The Mayan Riviera is a magical destination, sure to please everyone in your travel party. If you haven’t been yet, add it to your bucket list of travel destinations! Visit an Unlimited Vacation Club next time you are in Mexico.
