Quintana Roo

Caribbean Sea and magic

Along with Baja California, Quintana Roo is one of the youngest states of the country, as both territories were promoted from Federal Property to Free States, back in October 8th of 1974. The beaches in the Eastern sector of the state are bathed by the Caribbean Sea, therefore the name of “Mexican Caribbean”; its most inhabited towns are Cancun, Chetumal, Playa del Carmen and San Miguel de Cozumel.

The region now defined as Quintana Roo was populated by ancient Mayas, back in pre Columbian days. Nowadays many ethnic groups still survive and there is an extensive collection of archaeological sites, which give testimony of the great demographic concentration that this zone had in the past. Among the most interesting sites, we find Cobá, Dzibanché, Tulum, Tupak, Xel-Há and Xcaret. The Riviera Maya extends along the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula from Puerto Morelos to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. Once home to small fishing villages, the Riviera Maya coastline has since been developed into a modern tourist corridor offering the very best of high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf in Mexico.

An ideal vacation destination, the Riviera Maya is home to some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in all of Mexico with expansive stretches of powdery white sand lapped by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Spend the day at a luxury beach club where you can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, aquatic sports, spa services and a variety of modern amenities. You’ll find some of the best in the resort destination of Playa del Carmen, a friendly tourist town where you’ll also discover the Riviera Maya’s best shopping, dining and nightlife.

The Riviera Maya is one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. An expansive coral reef system extending just off the coast is home to a dizzying array of marine life including colorful tropical fish, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the Riviera Maya are not limited to the ocean. You can also go snorkeling and cave diving in the many cenotes (underground sink holes) that are unique to this Yucatan Peninsula.

The Riviera Maya is a top ecotourism destination in Mexico and throughout the region the natural environment is protected and preserved. Outside of the major tourist destinations, much of the land remains relatively undeveloped so the natural beauty of the Riviera Maya and the creatures that inhabit it are left to flourish. Local eco-parks offer a taste of all that the area has to offer in controlled, family-friendly environments.
