Riviera Maya Coast Holidays

Stretching from Cancun in the north to Tulum in the south, visitors will discover a magnificent coastline peppered with tropical beaches, snorkelling and diving havens, archeaological sites and lush jungle. Known as the Riviera Maya, a vast range of small boutique properties as well as luxurious resorts can be found on this south coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.

Playa del Carmen

South of Cancun, you arrive in Playa del Carmen, a former fishing village boasting stunning white beaches and clear blue waters.  Playa, as it is called by locals, is rapidly growing but has preserved its small-town charm and offers a great selection of local restaurants and shopping without the bustle and over-development of big resorts like Cancun. 

Tulum

South of Playa del Carmen, you arrive to Tulum, best known for its stunning stretch of powder white sand beach and its jade green waters. The well-preserved ruins of Tulum, date back to the 12th-century and the site commands a spectacular position on the clifftop overlooking the ocean. A much more laid back vibe compared to neighbouring resorts; Tulum provides in ultimate beach-escape. With many charming properties to choose from for all budgets, ask your Rainbow Tours destination expert for recommendations.

Cenotes

Whilst on the Riviera Maya; don't miss out of a visit to one of the Yucatan's famous cenotes (sinkholes). All part of the vast network of underground rivers that connect over 30,000 of these enticing natural wonders within the peninsula, these hidden subterranean natural sinkholes are undenyably beautiful swimming spots. Sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrifical offerings; they were often thought to be a connection to the Mayan underworld. 

Most itineraries tend to finish on this stretch of coast and we would be delighted to offer advice on which style of beach retreat would best suit your requirements for some wonderful relaxation at the end of your Mexico trip. We can also arrange day tours to the Mayan site at Chichen Itza from hotels along this coast.
