What makes the Riviera Maya so different from other coastlines around the world? The list would be endless. It has a large quantity of beaches with glistening white sand and mild surf. These beaches offer solitude and calm as their principal characteristics. Near the shore, a low-elevation jungle, typical of the tropics, acts as a wall to the sea. It is practically impenetrable. It’s a habit for a rich variety of flora and fauna, and geological formations that would be impossible to find anywhere else in the world lying hidden amid the intense green. Here the ‘’cenotes’’, sweet-water deposits of capricious shapes and different sizes, produced by the subterranean rivers, which emerged to the surface over the course of million years.
The incredible beaches, ideal climate, internationally famous nightlife, and Mayan archaeological treasures are the exotic elements that most attract travelers, but there is something else that contributes just as much to its popularity, Riviera Maya masterfully mixes the exotic with the familiar. All can experience a completely different way of life without the struggle of trying to adapt to the unknown.
