This is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico and the perfect place for those looking for fun and to have a great time on their vacations. With top beaches and all-inclusive hotels to enjoy a great experience. Cancun is known as the gateway of the Riviera Maya due to the easy access to the most popular destinations in the Riviera Maya. At your arrival on the Cancun International Airport you’ll find different transportation options, however the most recommended option is to book your vehicle or bus in advance, specially on high seasons, that way you will explore all the amazing places in the hotel zone and surrounding without problem.


Tulum is also a great place to go on your visit to the Yucat√°n Peninsula, with a different vibe from the rest of the other crowded cities like Playa del Carmen or Cancun. This is a little town located approximately 2 hours far from Cancun, so if you are planning to visit this destination it is recommended to anticipate your transportation method, do no’t worry since there are many options to move around like car rentals or private Tulum shuttle

With a boho style, there are several attractions and activities to have a relaxed time. The most famous are the Mayan Ruins and the cenotes around, but also the beaches have many hidden treasures. Tulum is very famous because it is the perfect spot to practice yoga at the sunset, so it is nor rare to find different hotels offering that option. If you have time, go to explore the street art by walking or bicycle. 


If you want to escape from the crowd and get in contact with nature, Mahahual is the perfect option. With different hidden treasures and virgin beaches to get into and intimate atmosphere to relax. Mahahual is not a famous destination, however is getting popularity in recent years due to the strategic location to practice water sports like snorkeling or scuba diving where you can enjoy the view of the different colorful fish, turtles and other marine animals. 

On your visit, do not miss the opportunity to go to Chinchorro Bank since it is the best option to snorkeling with the crystal waters. This little town is also perfect for just walking on the boardwalk or explore it on a bike. 

Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is the perfect combination between luxury and party atmosphere. It is famous because of the breathtaking beaches, but also for its attractions and privileged location with access to many quiet tourist destinations. You can easily reach Playa del Carmen from Cancun or any other point with an ADO, rental car or private Cancun to Playa del Carmen Shuttle. The travel time is about 1 hour from the airport, in case you're planning to go directly at your arrival.

Fifth Avenue is the most famous attraction, since most nightclubs and bars are located there. It is a 5 kilometer street full of different brand stores and restaurants that you must visit. On the other hand, Playa del Carmen has also options for more adventurous travelers since it is really near to famous theme parks like Xcaret and Xel-Ha.
