Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya is a popular tourist area located in the northeastern part of the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula, washed by the waters of the Caribbean Sea. She gained wide popularity due to the vast area of resort areas with many hotels, which, regardless of the level of comfort, operate in the all-inclusive mode. Local landscapes amaze with comfortable beaches with pleasant sand cover. Fans of exotic recreation in the south of the region are waiting for yoga centers. Here you can also walk along the ancient ruins of the Mayan port city, spread out on a sandy cliff.

Benefits and features of a beach holiday in Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya is a 100-kilometer long Caribbean Sea stretching from Tulum to Cancun. The most visited resorts are the island of Cozumel and Playa del Carmen. This part of the coast began to be developed relatively recently, when there were no free territorial zones left in Cancun. Basically, the Riviera Maya fell in love with tourists from Europe. This place is ideal for families, thanks to calm waters and fine white sand. Diving schools, extensive golf courses and spa treatment centers are also open here.

The average annual temperature does not exceed +28 degrees, and the water temperature is +27 degrees.

Covering the theme of the beaches of the Riviera Maya, it is necessary to mention the city of Playa del Carmen, located 70 km from Cancun. Here, on the territory of the pedestrian coastal zone, life is in full swing around the clock.

Diving enthusiasts are recommended to visit the largest Mexican island of Cozumel, located 20 km from Yucatan. Here is the second largest coral reef with a total length of more than 700 km. Almost the entire island area is occupied by a national park.

The fastest and most convenient way to the Riviera Maya is a flight to Cancun Airport. Departure can be carried out on regular flights from the nearest airports - Chisinau, Bucharest, Cluj or Iasi.

The most economical way is "promotional tickets" and cheap low-cost flights. Here, of course, you need to "get confused", but you can save up to 50% and make your route more interesting. We catch promotions from airlines Iberia, Air France, Condor, Lufthansa, etc. Then from Chisinau, Iasi, Bucharest and other cities we buy cheap tickets from Wizz Air, Rayan Air and other low-cost airlines. We fly to Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Cologne or another major city. We are definitely making a big change! This is important and necessary so that in the event of a change in time you have time for a connecting flight. We make an overnight stay or a big daytime transfer and at the same time study, walk around a beautiful European city along the way. We then take a direct flight to Cancun.
