Riviera Maya in Mexico is the best place where you can spice up your time. This Spanish speaking country offers everything what you really need for your perfect holidays. Starting from archaeological places of Mayan history and culture to beautiful beaches and the crystal clear water in cenotes.
What to visit?
In Yucatan, the most spectacular place to visit is the Chichen Itza pyramid, one of the seven new wonders of the world. Another fantastic spot is the Mayan ruins of Tulum and Coba. The Riviera Maya offers many wonderful beaches – one of them is Isla de Mujeres – the best choice where you can enjoy blue water and white sandy beaches. Next place is Cozumel Island where you can do some activities like snorkelling.
Note: Unfortunately, since 2018 Mexico and other Carribean islands are struggling with seaweed which is a nightmare for tourists dreaming about beautiful beaches in Tulum and Playa del Carmen.
Another great highlight of Mexico and something that you have to explore are – cenotes! They are little ponds with crystal clear water located under the ground. Imagine swimming between rocks in caves and with turtles. You have wide choices of cenotes in Mexico. They are almost everywhere on the peninsula. The most popular ones are the Grand Cenote, Dos Ojos, Tankah etc.
What to eat?
Mexico has the most incredible and spicy cuisine in the world. You can find here fantastic dishes like Burritos, Fajitas, Ceviche and more. Lots of meat, seafood and organic vegetables. Many alcoholic beverages like Tequila and Mezcal as well as fantastic Margarita cocktails.
Also, if you are a fan of Avocados and Tacos… you will not be disappointed with the food. Unfortunately, I have some bad news for Vegans… but you will find some vegetarian dishes.
Riviera Maya can be a great place for fun holidays.. Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and more – the choice is yours.
