The Riviera Maya is a sunny region with white sand that borders the turquoise waters stretch of amazing beachfront that takes up over seventy miles of coastland on the eastern part of Mexico in the state of Quintana Roo. The Riviera Maya is comprised of many gorgeous isolated and virgin beaches that offer visitors both romance and tranquility, as well as exciting adventures at every turn for the more bold of heart. A tropical paradise in the truest sense of the word, the crystal clear seas are even rumored to be hiding ancient treasure. One type of treasure that we know is hiding in the reefs is the live treasure of gorgeous sea faring creatures that are sure to delight snorkelers and divers alike.

No matter what your ideal beachfront vacation dreams may consist of, the Riviera Maya will undoubtedly be able to satisfy your every desire. Chock full of gorgeous Resorts that are just waiting to provide you with the ultimate Caribbean experience, the Riviera Maya is definitely the place to go if your idea of a vacation consists of gorgeous beaches, fun, relaxation and lots of sun! Known among locals, regular visitors and first time vacationers alike as the ultimate Caribbean experience, the Riviera Maya Cancun is a wonderful place for your vacation whether you are single or married with children or anything in between! The isolated, untouched beaches offer a stunning contrast to the modern architectural complexes of the resort hotels, marinas, sporting facilities, nightclubs and restaurants. In addition the southern half of the region contains the main ecological reserve of the state of Quintana Roo, the Sian Ka'an, which is not only a remarkable habitat that is world renowned for the richness of its flora and fauna, but also adds to the overall appeal of the Riviera Maya.

Riviera Maya is also a favourite destination for real estate investment in Mexico. Due to it's tropical climate, US style infrastructure and relatively cheaper real estate prices, investors from US, Canada and Europe are thronging to destinations like Tulum, Puerto Vallarta Real Estate and Playa del Carmen Real Estate. Some of the world's biggest and most prestigious developers are also active in the region with world class real estate projects. Most of the projects are booked during the pre construction phase itself due to lower prices and freedom to customize condos and property. During the initial stages of real estate project development, the prices are substantially lower than the final prices. The value of the project increases as the construction progresses from one phase to another. Savvy Mexico real estate investors aware of this fact buy preconstruction property and benefit in the process. Nowadays, Real Estate developers in Mexico also encourage real estate buyers to buy preconstruction condos by revising the prices periodically upwards at pre determined stages of real estate project's development and sales. This attracts real estate investors to buy property during initial stages of project development. This is ensures that both developers and real estate investors in Riviera Maya benefit from this strategy.

Travelers who are looking for a fantastic all-inclusive resort destination that is priced far below most tropical destinations in and around the Caribbean should look into Mexico's Riviera Maya. This area has fast become a very popular tropical vacation getaway for travelers from around the world. The Riviera Maya is located on the Caribbean side of Mexico and encompasses the stretch of coastline ranging from about 5 miles to 60 miles south of Cancun.

Don't be misled into thinking that because you fly into Cancun to get to the Riviera Maya that it is anything like Cancun and its spring break, party-like atmosphere...it is far from it. The Riviera Maya has been set aside by the Mexican government as a semi-protected area, and as such it cannot become the touristy, high-rise resort type of destination you find in the Cancun hotel zone. Resorts can only be built 3-stories or less in height and they have to be constructed to embrace the surrounding vegetation, wildlife, and topography. It is a much more family-friendly and romantic vacation destination.

Resorts in the Riviera Maya are primarily all-inclusive properties. Because of the remote locations of many of the properties there are very few offsite dining areas. All-inclusive resorts give the traveler the benefit of having everything paid for prior to their arrival. All meals, drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), non-motorized watersports, and other amenities are included in package prices. The more upscale all-inclusive resorts of 4-star and higher quality typically have many different restaurant options ranging from buffet to world-class a la carte cuisine....all-included! Some of the more popular resort chains in the Riviera Maya include Iberostar Resorts, Palace Resorts, and Secrets Resorts & Spas. Resorts run anywhere from more family-related types of properties or resorts for the budget-minded to very upscale adults-only spa resorts.

One of the best reasons to choose the Mexico Riviera Maya for your next vacation is not just for the superb quality resorts and great value, but also for the fantastic tours and excursions that are available in around the Yucatan Peninsula region. This area is teeming with Mayan ruins and ancient architecture that are very popular with tourists. The most majestic of the local Mayan ruins are the pyramids of Chichen Itza. These incredibly preserved pyramids date back to 400AD and this awe-inspiring tour will leave with you many wonderful memories. There are many other Mayan ruins tours you can take as well. In addition to ruins you can also experience many eco-based tours that take you to game and marine preserves where you will find amazing wildlife and snorkeling that is nothing short of amazing. Another popular day-trip for those staying in the Riviera Maya region is the island of Cozumel. You can reach this quaint island by ferry from the town of Playa del Carmen located in the heart of the Riviera Maya. It is a short 45 minute ferry ride and once there you will find duty-free shopping, great dining, and some of the world's best SCUBA diving and snorkeling.

If you have taken tropical vacations in the Caribbean or Hawaii and are looking for a new destination to go to the Riviera Maya is an excellent choice that will definitely impress and have you ready to come back to again and again.
