My wife and I recently went to Maya Riviera for our honeymoon and loved it! It is very close to Cancun and there are many excursion options to choose as well as great shopping. Enjoy your vacation!

We had a great 17 days on the beach walking it 3 times a day - sometimes it was very calm and we had 3 days of rough waves - loved it - its a shame they dont clean the beach often enough

The beautiful blue sea, the Mayan ruins and the coral rocks that line the coast. Many spots of pure beauty. The water is clear and you can see all the way to Cozumel on a clear day. Just beautiful....

Playa del Carmen is a very pleasant city, very colourful and alive, it has lots of nice restaurants and boutiques. The centre is close to the beach. There is al lot of condos for rent and a lot of tourists visiting and living there for a couple of months during Winter

This place is beautiful. The town is bustling, lots to do and see and to eat and drink... the people are beyond friendly, I wanted to move here after 5 days. The beaches, they are like oatmeal...so soft and creamy. The water was like jade-colored...just gorgeous. I fell in love with this city and it's people...we will be back!
