Beach in Riviera Maya Mexico

Cancun's Riviera Maya

Pristine beaches, caressed by calm, turquoise waters and bathed by gentle breezes, Riviera Maya offers stretches of white sand fringed with palm trees and protected by a chain of coral reefs. Miles of untouched powder white sand as far as the eye can see beckon vacationers in search of quiet and relaxation. Known and treasured by locals, but still virtually undiscovered, these unspoiled serene strands of beach, as plentiful as the region’s sunny days, make even the most seasoned traveler feel as if they are on their own deserted island.

Just a few miles from Playa del Carmen, the Riviera Maya’s shopping and dining center, and home to the most popular beach, are Playa del Secreto, Playa Paraiso and Punta Maroma. Long stretches of white sand offer visitors a wealth of peace and tranquility.
