As described by many travelers, Riviera Maya truly boasts a real essence of a Mexican paradise with lavish resort chains, powdery white sand beaches overlooking sapphire waves and century-old Maya ruins nestled amid verdant forests away from the city’s hustle-bustle.

The entire coastal stretch of Riviera Maya has a party-like scene with opulent all-inclusive properties boasting private beaches, year-round events ranging from festive parties to private beach weddings and a sophisticated dining scene offering mostly local yet international affair with a fusion twist to satisfy all foodies.

Riviera Maya gives each visitor a chance to experience modern Mexican culture. Staying at a beach-front all-inclusive is the best way to experience the luxury and amenities that most Riviera Maya hotels and resorts have to offer. However, for a true Mexican experience, visiting the neighboring Tulum is highly recommended. Tulum is where the urban culture meets the laidback Mexican town vibe. What awaits here is a sun-kissed pristine beach, coastal ruins, amazing cliffs and a thriving shopping and dining scene that satisfies foodies and shopaholics in every way.

A Riviera Maya getaway must include Chichen Iza tours, where ancient Maya ruins stand unscathed and await to be explored. Other must-do here are beach activities such as coral-reef sighting, which can be best enjoyed through scuba diving. The underwater treasure in this peninsula boasts the world’s second largest coral reef nestled just a few miles off-shore. Sunbathing, surfing, and kayaking are other highlights of a beach vacation in Riviera Maya.

The Riviera Maya, often termed as a rich vacationer’s holiday paradise, also features many carefully restored Mayan archeological sites that represent the vestige of a rich culture. To experience the true Maya culture and México lifestyle, one must settle at a local eatery to try the Yucatecan delicacies that are quite different from the modern Mexican cuisine. The local eateries choose the most traditional methods to prepare each dish, and the favorites are Cochinita Pibil, Tikin xic, and Papadzules, some of those must-try Yucatecan dishes.

However, the town of Playa del Carmen, located midway between Cancún and Tulum, has grown as an epicenter of Real estate investment in México. Because of the recent explosive development, infrastructure improvements and growing resort industries in this area, Playa del Carmen has become a chief México real estate investment hotspot among international buyers and investors.
