Located along the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula between the incredible turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and an enchanting tropical jungle, the area is made up of small quiet communities, each with a unique charm and diverse attractions, which is what makes Riviera Maya vacations so special.

Now famous for it's all-inclusive resorts, the Riviera Maya is also a great place to find boutique hotels, luxury villas, beach houses and Akumal condominiums.

The Riviera Maya is an extraordinary and diverse land which invites exploration, adventure, and reflection. The coastline is paralleled by the Great Maya Reef, the world's second largest barrier reef, famous for its beauty and abundant and varied marine life. Beneath the earth, a unique and complex system of underground rivers criss-cross the Yucatan Penninsula, opening to create fascinating caverns, caves and cenotes, (sinkholes). Hundreds of archaeological sites rise from the emerald green jungle, remnants of the spectacular and timeless Mayan civilization.

With the help of the travelers who chooses to explore this paradise and enjoy an Akumal vacation, people of the Riviera Maya strive to conserve and respect the natural beauty of their surroundings.
