Staying in Riviera Maya

Hideaway in tranquil Tulum

A long-time favourite for swimwear photoshoots, the turquoise waters and lush vegetation of Tulum are truly picture-perfect. The quieter cousin to the lively Cancun, Tulum’s resorts are typically hidden away off the beach and tend to be more laidback and intimate compared to Cancun’s super resorts that cater the masses.

Tulum’s are also commonly adult’s only, providing a perfect spot for newlyweds and couples looking to truly relax amongst incredible scenery. Though Tulum tends to be a quieter town, it is still within easy reach of the Riviera Maya’s attractions spanning ancient Mayan ruins and stunning fresh water cenotes.

Be seen in Playa del Carmen

For a livelier Riviera Maya holiday, the resorts and nightlife in Playa del Carmen have a distinctly European feel to them. A bustling town with easy access to the region’s highlights, Playa del Carmen is often regarded as a place to see and be seen, especially along the various sun lounges that line the beach. Playa (as the regulars refer to it), also offers a buzzing dining and nightlife scene that errs on the side of sophistication. As a result, resorts tend to be adult’s only and offer sophisticated stays that encompass the latest and greatest in resort living.
