WEATHER HERE

A seemingly endless coastline of stunning white sand beaches and an absurdly blue sea, ancient temples and exceptional diving opportunities.

Extending from Playa del Carmen down to Tulum, the Riviera Maya is home to some of the best beaches in Mexico; it’s also a divers dream, offering some of the world’s top dive sites. The vibe here is more laid back than Cancun, with spacious luxury hotels spread along the white sand beach coastline, backed by low-lying jungle.

Extending from Playa del Carmen down to Tulum, the Riviera Maya is home to some of the best beaches in Mexico; it’s also a divers dream, offering some of the world’s top dive sites. The vibe here is more laid back than Cancun, with spacious luxury hotels spread along the white sand beach coastline, backed by low-lying jungle. Sample Mexico’s rich culture and history and take a visit to Tulum to see the breathtaking ancient Mayan ruins perched on the cliff edge, or visit some of the many others dotted around this region. For a fun-filled family day out, take a trip to one of Mexico’s eco-parks such as the Xcaret Park or Xel-ha and meet some of the local wildlife face to face. Whether you simply want to relax on the beach, take in a spa treatment or indulge your adventurous side, the Riviera Maya offers the complete package.

Things to see and do in Riviera Maya

Eating out

The national dish is mole (pronounced mo-lay), which can be made with either chicken or turkey, but on the coast, seafood such as red snapper and tuna are delicious. Good dishes to watch out for include Pollo Pibil - a Yucatan speciality consisting of chicken marinated in orange and spices then barbecued in banana leaves. Tamales are cornmeal and chicken paste wrapped in corn or banana husks, then steamed. Then the old favourite, Enchiladas, are tortillas coated in a tomato and chilli sauce, stuffed with vegetables, chicken or pork then folded and baked and topped with sour cream.

Getting around

With roads in this region relatively new, it’s easy to hire a car and explore all that the area has to offer. The bus system in the peninsula is reliable and inexpensive to carry you comfortably between all the towns and sights. To travel further afield, catch the regular ferry from Playa del Carmen over to Cozumel for the day.

Additional Info

Mexico Entry Requirement - travelling with children.

The Mexican Migration Act stipulates that to enter and exit the country children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by either of the parents or those with parental responsibility/guardianship over them. There's no requirement for authorisation from the absent parent, for example in the case of single parents or those divorced/separated unless you appear not to be the child's parent - e.g. if you have a different surname to your child.

You'll be asked to provide notarized written authorisation signed by the parent who is not travelling with the child or by both parents where neither is travelling with the child. If you're not able to provide this you'll need to be able to show evidence of your relationship to the child and/or the reason why they are travelling with you e.g. a birth or adoption certificate, divorce or marriage certificates or Parental Responsibility Order. This will minimise the risk of problems when entering or leaving Mexico.

Children under 18 years old travelling alone or accompanied by an adult who is not the parent or a legal guardian must present to the immigration officer in Mexico a valid passport and notarized written authorisation from the parent(s) granting their permission for the child to enter/exit the country. This must also be translated into Spanish.

Take a look at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website for further Travel Advice.
