Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya, world famous tourist destination and jewel of the Mexican Caribbean. This paradise is famous for its endless attractions ranging from its theme parks, luxurious and extensive resorts, fascinating Mayan ruins, amazing sacred cenotes and dreamlike beaches.

The history of the Riviera Maya can be traced back to 1500 B.C. when the Mayan culture dominated the Yucatan Peninsula, giving rise to cities that are now World Heritage Sites, such as Chichen Itza.


After the arrival of Spain, the area underwent important changes. In 1528 Francisco de Montejo founded the city of Salamanca, now Xel-Há while some of the cities that have kept their founding names are Valladolid and Merida, giving way to syncretism.

The 20th century was decisive for the future of the Mexican Caribbean. It was in 1968 when, in search of tourist destinations that could be developed. The Mexican government fixed its interest in the beautiful beaches of the area, giving way to one of the most ambitious tourist projects, naming it the Cancun-Tulum Tourist Corridor. In 1976 the Cancun airport was inaugurated, which currently receives visitors from more than 120 destinations around the world.


Finally, it received the name Riviera Maya in 1997 thanks to the enormous growth and international popularity it achieved, combining the comfort of the most exclusive resorts with the unique Mayan culture.
