Seniors: Travel the Mayan Riviera

May 27th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

The Riviera Maya, also known as the Mayan Riviera is a 130 kilometer long stretch of Caribbean coastline that runs between the resort city of Cancun to the north, down to the Mayan ruins of Tulum at its southern end. The Riviera Maya is in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico’s most eastern state on Mexico’s most eastern body of land—the Yucatan Peninsula. The Riviera Maya is part of the Mexican Caribbean which describes the entire Caribbean coast of Mexico from Cancun down to Quintana Roo’s capital city of Chetumal, and the southern border with Belize, Central America. The island of Cozumel, Mexico’s largest island, is also part of the Mayan Riviera.
The Riviera Maya is your window to the Mexican world of Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Akumal, Puerto Aventuras, Tulum, Puerto Morelos and the complete Mayan Riviera. This is a little paradise along the coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula. Full of Mayan ruins, tropical waterparks and many fashionable resorts, here you can also enjoy the white-sand beach resorts and the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, where you can scuba dive along the world’s second largest coral reef. You can also swim in fresh water pools in submerged caverns, known as cenotes. I know as I swam through them. It is an unforgettable experience. Yes, even for seniors, as you wear a life jacket and the stream pulls you all along an overhead underground tunnel.
MexConnect is an electronic magazine devoted to providing quality information about Mexico, and promoting Mexico to the world. The magazine is supported by a searchable and cross-indexed database of over 4,000 articles and 350 photo galleries of over 3500 photographs. More than 500,000 people read us each and every month. Here seniors can access information on Travel, Culture & Arts, History, Cuisine, Business, Places as well as Forums.
Along the hotel strip, which spans more than 30 kilometers (nearly 19 miles), you’ll find everything from villas and five-star hotels to exclusive resorts and spas. You’ll also find modern shopping malls, more than 500 restaurants offering the best in national and international cuisine, and numerous bars and discos where the parties rage all night long. And Cancun, it speaks for itself. It must be experienced to be appreciated. It is Mexico’s most important tourist destination and one of the world’s most well-known resorts. Located in the state of Quintana Roo in the Yucatan Peninsula region, it has a subtropical climate, with average temperatures ranging between 27º C (81º F) and 35º C (95º F) and sunny days throughout most of the year. Snorkeling all along the coast is a lot of fun with hundreds of species of colorful fish. I do love it down there! jeb
