Location

The Riviera Maya, which is also sometimes referred to as the Mayan Riviera, stretches over nearly 100 miles of coastline with beautiful white-sand beaches and brilliant turquoise colored water just south of Cancun. This world-renowned paradise is home to mangroves and lagoons, ancient Mayan cities, ecological reserves and adventure parks, and the world's second largest coral reef.

The Riviera Maya runs along the Caribbean coastline of the state of Quintana Roo. It begins 20 miles south of Cancun in the town of Puerto Morelos and extends down to Punta Allen, a fishing village within the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. South of the Riviera Maya, you'll find the Costa Maya, an even more secluded and pristine area. Don't confuse the Mayan Riviera with the Mexican Riviera, which is the name given to Mexico's Pacific coastline.
