Also known as the Mayan Riviera, this tourism district follows the coastal Highway 307 running parallel the Caribbean coastline of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo on the eastern portion of the Yucatán Peninsula. The Riviera Maya was originally called the Cancun - Tulum corridor and renamed as the Riviera Maya in 1999. In recent years Playa del Carmen has developed rapidly and is now hosting large annual events increasing vacation villa and condo rentals in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya.

Playa del Carmen is famous for its night live and La Quinta Avenida, Fifth Avenue, the pedestrian walkway now stretching for several kilometers along the coastline just one block off the beach. Shop til you drop, spend the day at one of the beach clubs or explore literally hundreds of restaurants and bars catering to every taste and budget. Playa del Carmen is the heart of the Riviera Maya, and you will feel the beat when you are here.

A major attraction are coastal and reef aquatic activities on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System starting near Cancun continuing along the whole length of the Riviera Maya southward to Guatemala. This barrier reef system is the second largest in the world.

Activities in the Riviera Maya include Jet Skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming in cenotes, swimming with dolphins, zip-lining, horse riding, camel riding, sailing, fishing, sky diving and guided jungle tours. Spend a day on one of the great beaches along the coast line awaiting your visit or play golf on one of the several golf courses in the Riviera Maya.

Archeology is a big draw in the area, focusing on the nearby popular archeological sites of Mayan ruins in Tulum on the coast just an hour south of Playa del Carmen, Coba and Chichen Itza located some distance inland. Various eco and adventure parks are established in the area.
