Here’s our monthly gallery showcasing some of the region’s many natural and historical attractions. How many have you visited? Which ones would you like to explore on future visits to Cancun and the Riviera Maya?
Clear fall and winter skies mean spectacular sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico on the island of Holbox. During a boat trip through Yalahau lagoon, visitors will see flamingos, different species of herons and egrets and migratory birds ranging from white pelicans to ducks, waders, songbirds and even the ruby throated hummingbird.
This coral atoll off the coast of southern Quintana Roo is an incredible experience for advanced scuba divers. The spectacular reefs are rich in marine life and there are more than 70 shipwrecks, the remains of vessels that foundered on the corals over the centuries.
This pristine crescent-shaped bay in the Riviera Maya is an important nesting beach for turtles and the state government designated it a sea turtle sanctuary to protect the shoreline. The mangroves and forest behind the beach are also rich in wildlife.
How about a day of swimming and snorkeling in some of the Riviera Maya’s most beautiful cenotes at Dos Ojos. With an expert guide, certified cave divers can also explore flooded caves that are part of one of the world’s longest underground river systems.
Your concierge can help you arrange tours to these locations and many more throughout the Yucatan Peninsula.
