Beach Clubs, Cenotes, Theme parks & More: What to do in Mexico’s Maya Riviera

Climbing the Pyramid at Coba

As anyone who has visited the Riviera Maya can verify, there is must to see and do in this region in Mexico.  While most people visit this area for it’s gorgeous beaches, there are plenty of other things to do in the Riviera Maya.

Here is a small sample (contact me for a complete list):

  • Sun on a beach – swim in spectacular beaches all along the Riviera Maya.  My favorite beaches are in Playa del Carmen and Tulum (especially the beach at Tulum Ruins).  Akumal is reputed to have some nice beaches.
  • Cenotes – swim in one of the many cenotes (underground, water filled caves) dotted in the area.  I swam at Tancach-Ha located near Coba ruins.  There is nothing like swimming in the crystal clear water of a cave.  Here are some other cenotes worth trying: Dos Ojos & Grand Cenote.
  • See a Mayan Ruin – Visit Chichen Itza, Coba or Tulum.  All are spectacular in their own way.
  • Take a yoga class – This is very easy to do in the Riviera Maya – especially in Tulum.

What would you add to this list?  Comment below or contact me via email.  Thanks!
