Things to do in Riviera Maya
#1 Whale Shark Swimming
Floating next to the biggest fish in the world is something you must have on your bucket list! There’s no better way to do it than here, in Mexico. Why? Warm temperatures of the blue Caribbean Sea! Mantas and Whale Sharks are chilling at the surface… So peacefully. There’s no other place in the world that gives you this opportunity of a lifetime. Swimming along with the biggest and most beautiful of the sharks will be one of the most exciting moments of your life… No worries, they’re harmless to humans as we’re not part of their diet…
#2 Tulum Ruins
Cliffside Ruins by the ocean, anyone? Wooohoo! Culture trips are also fun, especially when you are on vacation with your cell-phone ready to snap a few selfies in one of the most picturesque archeological sites in the world. The famous pyramids of the Mayan Culture have been standing there for centuries, waiting for you and your group. Snap that photo of your favorite iguana while the blue sea backdrops… Tulum Ruins are a must-see if you are flying in with your family and friends to Cancun during your destination wedding.
#3 Swimming in Cenotes
SEH-NOT-EH? Freshwater springs coming from an underground river… Crystal-clear water helps you rejuvenate your soul and spirit… Relax, float, breathe… The world stops for a moment as you explore beautiful caves that you never imagined existed. The Riviera Maya is home to the largest network of Underground Rivers and if you come here to enjoy the beach, don’t forget that our biggest treasure is found beneath the green jungle lush! Plus, the Cenotes are a perfect background for your engagement or bridal photo sessions.
#4 Snorkeling Puerto Morelos
The second-largest reef in the world is just a few yards off the coasts of the Riviera Maya. By taking a small boat ride to the reef you can discover one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the entire world. Hundreds of different types of fish are also found in the shallow waters of this quiet town south of Cancun. If you are lucky enough you will spot a few lobsters, stingrays, and even some turtles! If you love snorkeling this is definitely your spot!
#5 Zip-lining at Mayan Eco Park
One of the best-kept secrets in the Riviera Maya is a local community that runs one of the most beautiful places in the region. If you are looking for something different, away from the crowds you may end up Zip-lining and canoeing on the largest Cenote opening in the Mayan Riviera! Dare to cliff jump into the most refreshing waters of this unique village and enjoy the flavors of the local produce offered by the most beautiful local people: the authentic locals. Enjoy a traditional Mayan lunch surrounded by nature in a unique environment with your family and friends.
