The Riviera Maya is a 130 kilometer stretch of Caribbean coastline between the resort city of Cancun in the north and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve in the south. Other communities and towns that are part of this famous Mexican beach vacation paradise include Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel Island, Puerto Aventuras, and Akumal.
Located on the eastern Caribbean shore of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Riviera Maya has more to offer than just its amazingly beautiful white sand beaches. A rich history, a diverse culture and a range of popular activities from adventure tours, archaeology, local handcraft shopping and much more make this region one of the most popular places to visit.
If you are looking for an adrenaline rush the region offers an exciting variety of ATV tours for young and old alike, from Can-Am double-seaters to single-seater 120 CC machines. Routes usually run along bumpy limestone tracks through verdant sub-tropical jungle, and include various activities like visiting Mayan ruins, swimming and snorkeling in cenotes, zip-lining and delicious regional lunches.
Most of the ATV tours on offer are half day tours so are best for early morning getaways, leaving the rest of the day for basking in the sun on the beach!
