Cancun and Riviera Maya sit along the coast of the famed Yucatan Peninsula. The city of Cancun is at the northern tip with the Riviera Maya stretching from Puerto Morelos south to the village of Punta Allen. This entire region features iconic beaches and Mayan ruins. You'll find lots of exciting activities too like jungle canopy tours and zip lines at parks like Xcaret, Xel-Ha and Selvatica. Travel to Cancun and choose from 5-star luxury resorts and day trips to ancient Mayan cities like El Rey Archaeological Zone, providing tours of the past. Spend time exploring local boutiques at El Centro or visit a paradise island like Isla Contoy, a protected nature reserve with quiet beaches and exotic wildlife. Liven it up in the evening and enjoy Cancun's nightlife or take it slow with some salsa dancing. The city is a playground of opportunities. Riviera Maya is the crown that the jewel of Cancun sits atop of. This long uninterrupted coastline of white powdery sands is heaven sent. The region is home to the dreamy port town of Puerto Morelos where blue waters are coloured with coral gardens designated as a Reef National Park. Enjoy interactive zoos and botanical gardens complete with spider monkeys.
