Riviera Maya is famous for its spectacular beaches and also its rich cultural heritage. Along the coastline, visitors can find ancient archaeology dating back to the pre-Columbian era. Akumal boasts of a privileged location where the most sought-after ruins are within a car drive away.
One of the most heavily visited attractions, these cliff-top ruins create a dramatic vision, keeping a quiet watch over the white sandy beaches and the blue Caribbean Sea below. The view of the beaches of Tulum is spectacular! Sandy beaches, surf and an eclectic mix of people make them great for playing in the waves.
Chichen Itza is most famous for the display of light and shadow that occurs every spring and autumn equinox. The magnificence of its buildings and mathematical order of its architectural lines make Chichen Itza one of the most interesting architectural sites in the Yucatan Peninsula.
Coba is the largest archaeological zone in the Yucatan, nine square miles, much of which lies covered by green jungle. "Nohuch Mul," the principal structure of Coba, is the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan at 122 feet. Coba is located approximately 1.5 hours from Akumal. It is absolutely worth seeing!
Muyil was one of the earliest and longest inhabited ancient Maya port cities on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, and artifacts found here date back from as early as 350 BC. The ruins of Muyil are an example of Peten architecture with steep-walled pyramids like those at Tikal in Guatemala.
