Mexican Riviera Maya

Probably the most outstanding feature of this part of the globe is the Caribbean Sea with its turquoise waters and white sandy beaches.  If you are into snorkeling or scuba diving you'll love this place: the second largest barrier reefs runs right in front of our noses. You can also snorkel and dive in regional cenotes, sweet water sink holes that are typical for the Yucatan peninsula. They are openings in the lime stone and are connected to a giant subterranean river system that flows into the ocean.  Guided cave dives are offered in various cenotes. (see pictures below)

There is an abundant offer of things that you can do to reconnect with nature: ocean or lagoon kayaking, kite surfing, catamaran cruising, swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving, horseback riding, explore the jungle, have a spa treatment, or just enjoy endless beach walks.

The Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve was declared UNESCO world heritage in 1987, and is a bird watcher's paradise. Watch the clip for details.  The Bacalar lagoon is said to be of seven different shades of blue. There is a cenote within one section of the lagoon.

If you feel like escaping to an island: visit Cozumel which is among the five best places in the world for diving, or Isla Mujeres with its Caribbean charm, or the more peaceful islands Contoy and Holbox where you can swim with whale sharks.

The most popular archaeological site of the Yucatan peninsula is in Chichen Itza.  It's considered one of the Seven World Wonders, and is known to be especially powerful during the spring and fall equinoxes.  The ancient city of Cobá, once an important traffic hub, is located in the jungle.  Overlooking the ocean, the Tulum temple served as a calendar to indicate important dates. Ek Balam's ruins are not as well known, but you'll be surprised in what excellent condition the wall paintings are. Truly a hot insider tip!

The Mayan territory covered Tabasco, Chiapas, Campeche, Yucatan, Quintana Roo, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and partially Nicaragua.
