Visitors to Riviera Maya are quick to learn that the region is blessed with not only incredible white sand beaches and clear turquoise waters, but also with a wealth of history and a precious ecosystem.

Christmas in Cancun? Though traditional images of Christmas might involve snow and bedecked pine trees, the holidays down south can be equally as lovely, just in their own way. Not as hot as in the summer, yet miles away from the blistering cold of the north, Christmas in Cancun is both a solemn and festive occasion, the perfect mix of happy family time and vacation revelry. Sounds like a lovely tropical escape.
Most people know Cancun for being ground zero for hot fun in the sun on the Caribbean side of Mexico. But this once-little resort town has seen massive growth over the past four decades, and now Cancun caters to more than spring-break party goers. Everybody from business executives to retirees come to Cancun for the hot sun, the white beaches, and the various other outdoor activities Cancun has to offer. Being that Cancun is now an international destination catering to all tastes, it’s a good place to swing some irons too, so if your idea of an ideal vacation involves getting out onto the grasslands and hitting a nice round of 18, you’re in luck: here are the golf grounds you need to be looking for.
Though I’ve seen sharks while swimming, I never saw myself purposely diving into the deep sea waters to swim with one. When I signed up to swim with Mexican whale sharks, I did so despite how nervous it made me feel. My heart would literally beat faster at the thought of it.

This made Viator’s Early Access to Chichén-Itzá with a Private Archeologist a perfect choice.
I have been told over and over that of all of the fun things one can do when visiting the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, swimming in the cenotes is not to be missed. I had avoided this experience for some time, but on this last visit to Riviera Maya, I decided to sign up for the adventure tour at Mayan cenotes, not really sure what I was getting myself into and a bit nervous about the idea of jumping into caves.
