"Mayan Riviera" Isla Cancùn by Calor

Isla Cancùn Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 31 photos

The Mayan Riviera is located in the County of Quintana Roo.

This place is the complete opposite of Cancun, it's definitely for those who seek rest and relaxation and the comforts of their own hotel.

If you do need to get "out", Playa Del Carmen, a town about an hour or so away, is a great place to visit, for nightlife and shopping.

Nearby, you will find Tulum, and you can visit the Mayan Ruins in Tulum, or an eco-resort called Xel-ha.

Mexico has a lot to offer visitors who either favour more of an upbeat vacation or a low-keyed one.

The picture of the "el nino" above was taken on the Island of Cozumel (notorious for it's diving) as well as cruise-ship visitors.

Hope you enjoy my pages.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet, relaxing, beautiful beaches, secluded, great for nature lovers, couples
  • Cons:If you like a lot of nightlife and activity this is not the place to visit, Cancun is a better bet.
  • In a nutshell:Great place for rest and relaxation.

    Somewhere I would love to visit. The Mayan ruins are particularly of interest. You describe things so well and very informative. Local travel has to be tried:-)
