Overview of Riviera Maya

A stay on the Riviera Maya is always about endless sun, ridiculously perfect beaches, a world of ancient culture and adrenalin-fuelled water sports. Throw in the warmest of welcomes and you’ll find holidays to Mexico just don’t get much better. The huge stretch of coastline holds many gems, from the vibrant Playa del Carmen beach to the more tranquil Punta Allen. The Mayan ruins are always engaging, the beach bars are legendary, and if you’re staying at the Catalonia Riviera Maya Resort and Spa, you’re in the ideal spot to go and explore all of it.

Things to do in Riviera Maya

The white-sand beaches are an obvious pull, and they’re as stunning as you’d imagine. Down on the beach you’ll find all kinds of watersports, the diving is incredible, and you can swim with turtles just an hour away too. If you prefer to explore nature on land, there are monkeys to be played with at Jungle Place, and if you’re into your eco parks, Xcaret Park is a seriously big one. In terms of cultural events, there’s the Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine and Food Festival in March and the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival in November. In truth, it doesn’t take much to sell this part of the world. There’s so much to discover, in the jungle or the ocean, and a beach scene that makes you feel like you’re on another world. And that’s what you get with a stay at the Catalonia Riviera Maya Resort and Spa.
