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.

Best time to take a vacation to Riviera Maya

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. Try and take in the annual week-long Mardi Gras celebration with all its color and processions. The Latin American Food Show each September is extremely popular and attracts huge numbers.

Insider tips for Riviera Maya travel

Puerto Morelos Tun Ha

Stroll around the small fishing village of Puerto Morelos Tun Ha, taking in the laid-back atmosphere and sampling some great seafood caught that very day.

Coba

Rent yourself a bike and tour the remarkable ancient ruins of Coba at your own leisurely pace.

Tulum

Avoid all those crowded beaches and instead head for the beautiful white sands of Tulum where you can enjoy a few hours of inspirational solitude.

Cenote Aktun Ha

Explore the large open-water area of Cenote Aktun Ha with great snorkeling opportunities just a little off the beaten track.

Botanical Gardens

See the fascinating spider monkeys amongst the many animals living in the spacious Botanical Gardens just outside Puerto Morelos Tun Ha.

Riviera Maya highlights

Cancun

Cancun is home to sun, fun, fantastic nightlife and spring-breakers. But Cancun isn't just for college kids seeking a wild time. For the ultimate in relaxation on your Riviera Maya vacation, there's sea and sand galore at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines. And if you crave exploration with a refreshing plunge at the end, point your compass towards the Boca del Puma cenote.

Playa del Carmen

If beaches and bargain-shopping are high on your list for a complete Riviera Maya travel experience, Playa del Carmen in the place for you. For the former, you can take your pick between Main Beach, Coco Beach and Mamitas Beach. For the latter, Quinta Avenida is chockablock with boutique stores and souvenir stalls, plus an endless line of traditional Mexican eateries.

Coba

Travel to this little village to scope out ancient Mayan ruins and gorgeous views of the jungle. Climb the 120 steps to the top of Nohoch Mul for a phenomenal perspective. And don't forget to take a refreshing dip in the local cenote when you're done.

Mercados

You'll find markets everywhere on your Riviera Maya travels. Some of the best include Cancun's Mercado 28, where you can pick up plenty of silver jewelry and cheap nosh. The Organic Farmers Market, held every Saturday in Tulum, offers everything from organic honey and pumpkins to a massive array of herbs and spices.

Akumal

This heavenly destination is home to caves, subterranean waters and turtles. Kick back on the white sands of Halfmoon Bay and go snorkeling in the colorful coral. Fuel up with great grub at low prices from local vendors: Lol-Ha is great for Mexican and Americana eats, while La Buena Vida is ideal for cheap drinks and a quick snack.
