LOCATIONS
On the coast of the Riviera Maya there are several locations of different importance, size and origin. The heart of the Riviera Maya is the city of Playa del Carmen, which can be considered specifically as a destination by itself. This city has the higher rate of growth in the country. Here you will find all the services and support that you may require during your stay in the Riviera Maya, in addition, restaurants and shopping. Playa del Carmen’s commercial pier is the place where ferries transport people to and from the Island of Cozumel.

We encourage you to program a visit for the day to Playa del Carmen. At sunset, walk by the fifth avenue, look around its stores, and choose a restaurant to have a superb meal, this is something you cannot miss

Tulum - archaeologic siteTulum is the second town in importance in the Riviera Maya, denominated just as the famous archaeological zone, although it is a small town of just a few streets running parallel to the Federal highway which is in reality its main avenue. In Tulum you can find basic services that are no longer available in other coastal settlements of the southern part of the Riviera Maya.

There are other small towns and settlements, like Chemuyil and Akumal, the last, an old port with a small town. Hotels and residential areas can be found in this place. Excellent for a relaxing vacation and to enjoy the beauty of the Mexican Caribbean, offering different options for aquatic activities such as squba diving and snorkeling.
