Riviera Maya is home to stunning beaches, gourmet restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife with something that appeals to every traveler.

Historical Ruins

You can explore the archaeological ruins that attract tourists from all over the world. When planning your vacation, you should inquire about travel accommodations and tours outside of the resort's facilities. Some resorts may have bicycle tours of the area available for guests. The district of Riviera Maya has archaeological ruins in Tulum, Chichen Itza, and Coba. Resorts in Xcaret and Xel-Ha also have small archaeological ruins.


All-inclusive resorts in Riviera Maya allow you to select a room or all-inclusive package that accommodates the number of people in your party. The package you select determines the amenities that are included in your all-inclusive vacation. For example, in some resorts, all packages include breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the resort's restaurants, but only select suites include room service in the all-inclusive plan. In addition to providing all meals, all-inclusive packages allow you to use the resort's swimming pools, tennis courts, and fitness centers. Along with meals, the resorts also provide you with an unlimited amount of beverages throughout the day. When considering the cost to stay in a standard hotel and the costs of dining, the all-inclusive packages can be a tremendous value.

Some all-inclusive resorts cater to an adults only crowd while others are family friendly. Activities in an all-inclusive package include non-motorized water sports, snorkeling, and beach activities. Resorts may include theater and music productions for you to enjoy on your vacation. Family friendly resorts have specialized activities to keep children occupied leaving parents to enjoy the spa or resort on their own.

You can book a vacation package that includes airfare and the all-inclusive stay at the resort or spa. If you plan to explore the local area on your own, you can book a car rental when planning your vacation. Car rentals are not included in an all-inclusive resort vacation. All-inclusive resort packages offer an incredible value to travelers to Riviera Maya, but take the time to explore the various packages and resorts available to find a vacation package that meets your vacation needs. The policies for all-inclusive plans can vary from resort to resort.
