Riviera Maya

Your Riviera Maya vacation

South of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula lies the Riviera Maya, a collection of heaven-like spots including Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos. Another major draw here is the Mayan ruins, ancient remnants of the Meso-Americans, which can be seen throughout the area, most famously in Tulum. Also be sure to check out the cenotes in Macanxoc, Sacalpuc, Yaxlaguna and Xcanh.

You may think these attractions come at a high price, but CheapTickets has budget-friendly tips to put in your Riviera Maya vacation arsenal.

  • The tropical climate of the Yucatan Peninsula means that the temperatures in Riviera Maya are excellent all year round; however, between December and April the dry season brings slightly cooler temperatures than in the height of summer. Early fall is the wet season, although it still receives a good amount of beautiful sunshine, so this is when crowds thin out and the hotels and flights are available at cheaper rates.
