I feel lucky for having been born in Mexico, but I feel luckier for having lived in the earthly paradise of Cancun & the Riviera Maya, with its extreme beauty, amazing landscapes and wonderful people. This is without a doubt an essential element on any traveller’s bucket list.
Cancun’s cosmopolitan style hypnotizes you from the minute you set foot here, with more than 23 kilometres of hotels, an enormous variety of accommodation styles, international food, amusing nightlife and tons of activities, it is waiting for the millions of travellers that make this one of the most popular destinations in the world.
Playa del Carmen, with a more discreet style, is a growing city and the perfect spot to meet new friends, its extension is perfect to visit every corner, rent a bike or just walk to any of its public beaches, grab a drink and snack and spend the day enjoying the sun, the sand and the sea. After the sun sets go to the 5th avenue and delight yourself with dinner at any of the multiple restaurants and party all night at its fun bars and clubs. Get a good night’s sleep at your hostel and then wake up ready for another relaxing day at a chic beach club.
Tulum is the perfect place for chilling out and exploring the beautiful stretches of Caribbean beaches, an archaeological site and quaint little town. Here the lifestyle is more relaxed, so you can disconnect from the world, and immerse yourself in nature. Explore the nearby cenotes and discover the biodiversity of this beautiful place, get in touch with the locals, and get involved with their culture. Don’t miss the spectacular archaeological site of Tulum located on a cliff above the turquoise sea and feel amazed by the Mayan legacy to the world.
Riviera Maya, see you soon, very soon 😉
