When dreaming about Riviera Maya, we picture the Caribbean Sea, unlimited kilometres of sand caressing the ocean starting from the northern part of the Peninsula, and all the way down south to the border of Belize.
Limitless beautiful nature is to expect, responding to our enchanted guests & locals’ all sorts of taste in the State of Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Riviera Maya is surrounded by beaches, cenotes, jungle, pyramids, culture & much more. Here is your invitation to come and discover it all. One visit won’t be enough!
If you are thinking about purchasing a property in this area, let me convince you by introducing some of the most beautiful beaches on the Riviera Maya.
Playa del Carmen’s most famous beach is definitely Mamitas Beach. Located downtown on 28th street, it offers the best looking beach in the city. Foreigners and locals enjoy the warm sand and turquoise color of the Caribbean Sea as they groove to the well-known Mamitas Beach Club’s music. There is a free public spot, which has recently gained a few feet back in terms of space, right in front of the beach club. A must go-to when visiting the area.
For a more quiet beach a little outside of the city, go to Playacar, known as a luxurious residential area. Fortunately, there is a public access for those who do not live in one of their villas or stay in their high-end all-inclusive hotels. Playacar’s scenery on the beach is closer to nature, clearer water and whiter sand under a clear blue sky without a single shade. If you walk a few meters south, you will encounter less people for a more peaceful afternoon.
If you feel a little more adventurous, get on a transportation that will take you to a paradise for snorkelers and beach bums. Within half an hour from Playa del Carmen and Tulum, reach the amazing Xpu Ha Beach where you can enjoy many water activities by the Mesoamerican Reef, also known as the Great Mayan Reef.
In Tulum, everyone has heard of Playa Paraíso, which translates to Heaven Beach. Without a doubt, you will get the feeling of being in paradise. White sand, transparent blue water, palm trees and beach volleyball are awaiting you! There are a few options to grab a bite or a drink to quench that thirst. You can enjoy Tulum’s Mayan Ruins in the morning and walk about 750m to get to the public entrance of Playa Paraíso to spend the warm afternoon that you have been dreaming of.
There are other heavenly beaches in the peninsula to discover once you set foot here, and trust me, you will never want to leave!
