Riviera Maya is a strip of sand and sun that stretches along 130 kilometers of white beaches and turquoise waters on the eastern tip of Mexico, on the coast of Quintana Roo. It ranges from secluded beaches to modern architectural complexes, including hotels, marinas, sports facilities and restaurants. A magical destination due to the fantastic geography ranging from jungle rivers, Cenotes and underground streams, lakes, savannah, lagoons, and mangroves.
Our amazing town is located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, and offers a wide range of activities, fun, sports, shopping, great food and relaxation. Its strategic position close to archeological and natural tourist sites makes it the ideal starting point to reach the parks such as Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xplor, the Mayan ruins of Tulum, Cobá y Chichen Itza, the natural areas of Sian Ka´an and Rio Lagartos, the Cenotes, the islands of Contoy, Isla Mujeres and Cozumel.
The little fishermen village it used to be is no more, Playa is now a dynamic little town known the world-over. You can´t miss a walk on the famous 5th Avenue, just one block from the beach, with all its shops, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. You can enjoy the crystal blue waters, doing water activities such as diving, snorkeling, catamaran and yacht rides, fishing, parasailing and swimming with dolphins.
Here you can acquire incredible Mexican jewelry made in quality silver, by internationally renowned artisans, as well as Mexican crafts, such as hammocks, sculptures, carved wood, coconut lamps, hand knitted hats, leather and so much more.
