Riviera Maya in Mexico

Close your eyes and picture the warm turquoise sea stretching out before you, crystal-clear waves lapping against soft white sand, palm trees swaying gently in the breeze. That’s the scene here in Riviera Maya, the perfect place to kick back and relax. If you want to do some exploring, check out the Mayan ruins at Tulum or Coba’s 7th-century pyramid of Nohoch Mul. Cosmopolitan Playa del Carmen boasts a bustling main square and sumptuous restaurants, while peaceful Cozumel island is a diver’s paradise.
