The Riviera Maya is the strip from Cancun to Tulum which includes fishermen's villages such as of Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Playacar, Secreto, Perserverancia, Punta Bete Bay, Akumal, Tankah, Punta Soliman and Tulum. The ecological parks of Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xpu-Ha and Tres Rios are located within this area. The Riviera Maya will be able to offer ten to fifteen attractive options for visitors and will have between 15,000 - 25,000 hotel rooms within the next few years. Naturally, this would be a fantastic complement for Cancun since it would open limitless opportunities for tourism to the region. The harmonious conjunction of nature reserve and selected development centers is clearly the perfect response to those concerned with managing the volatile mixture of tourism and environmental protection, both today and tomorrow. Take a day to visit these beautiful areas, especially the quaint town of Playa del Carmen where there are numerous shops and restaurants on the famous 5th avenue.

  Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is a tiny Caribbean island located six nautical miles off the coast of Cancun in Mexican territorial waters. Its picturesque name, which translates ' Women Island' dates to the early 15th century when the Spanish conquistadors found female figurines scattered on the beach as they landed on the island's shores for the first time. One of the mayor attractions of Isla Mujeres Garrafón-Punta Sur Park, an environmentally protected area located on the southern tip of the island. The Park encompasses both land and sea: a section of the longest reef in the hemisphere, and the highest point on the island. The reef is in the shallow water-perfect for snorkeling-while the cliffs above offer a panoramic view of the Island, the Caribbean Sea, and Cancun’s skyline beyond

  El Rey Ruins

Dating back to the Mayan post-classical period; its name is derived from the skeleton discovered on the upper part of the larger mound. The Mayan fishermen built this small ceremonial center and settlement very early in the history of Maya civilization. It was then abandoned, to be resettled later near the end of the Post classic period, not long before the arrival of the conquistadores. The platforms of numerous small temples are visible amid the banana plants, papayas, and wildflowers. The Hilton Golf Course has been built around the ruins, but there is a separate entrance for sight-seers.

  Chichen-Itzá

Chichen-Itzá is located at 120 km East of Mérida and 190 km West of Cancun, in the state of Yucatan. Hidden by the jungle for hundreds of years the great cities of the Mayans are being reclaimed. Exactly why this civilization collapsed is still a mystery. One of the greatest sites and the most fully restored is the huge site of Chichen-Itzá, one of the most visited, by its extraordinary architectonic beauty and geographic location. It was discovered in the year 514 of our age by the priest Lakin Chan, who was called Itzamná. While Europe was still in the midst of the Dark Ages, these amazing people had mapped the heavens, evolved the only true writing system native to the Americas and were masters of mathematics. They invented a calendar as accurately as the one used today. Without metal tools, beasts of burden or even the wheel they were able to construct vast cities across a huge jungle landscape with an amazing degree of architectural perfection and variety. Their legacy in stone, which has survived in a spectacular fashion it places such as Palenque, Tikal, Tulum, Chichen-Itzá, Palenque, Copan and Uxmal; the Maya are probably the best-known of the classical civilizations of Mesoamerica. Originating in the Yucatan Peninsula around 2600 BC, they rose to prominence around AD 250 in present-day.
