With impossibly white sand lining much of the Yucatan Peninsula’s lengthy Caribbean coast, and the proximity of this paradise to the sun starved masses of the United States and Canada, it is no surprise that the Mayan Riviera has enjoyed an upsurge in popularity in recent years.
Its vibrant cities and towns offer a bevy of urban attractions, while the waters offshore and jungles inland offer many opportunities for day excursions of varying types. While accommodations of any sort are gladly accepted by tourists in exchange for a week or two in this magical place, all-inclusive resorts remove most of the decisions of what to do, drink or eat for visitors, making for a lower stress vacation.
These all inclusive resorts to check out in the Mayan Riviera are the very best of the bunch, as they deliver value that is unparalleled compared to their competition.
Live Aqua, Cancun
In the party hub of Cancun, no resort channels the vibe of this popular Mayan Riviera city quite like Live Aqua. With an ambient soundtrack gently setting the mood as you lounge leisurely in your cabana alongside of one of seven pools on the property, you will slip into a state of relaxation that this resort is exceptionally good at in inducing in their customers.
Jacuzzis, infinity pools, or a lap pool for those active types that can’t sit still are all present here, making this place a dream for those that dream of experiencing the perfect pool, blissfully floating away in them underneath the baking rays of a tropical sun that shines with radiance all year round.
The Royal, Playa Del Carmen
Situated in the heart of the uber popular shopping street Quinta Avenida and on some of the best beach front in town, The Royal Playa Del Carmen complements its exemplary location by having exceptional facilities within the grounds of its resort.
Being an adult only resort, the drinks flow freely at numerous bars throughout the premises, including a very attractive swim up bar in the pool closest to its frontage on the beach. A larger second pool spans the length of the resort and a hidden third pool has been constructed with the recent addition of a new complex towards the back of the property.
With restaurants serving fine Asian, Mexican, Mediterranean, and American cuisine among others, meal times will also be a daily event at The Royal, leading you to dream of the return trip to this resort when your time to return home finally arrives.
The Royal Suites Yucatan by Palladium, Akumal
For those that want to escape the throbbing bass of Cancun and the boom town vibe of Playa Del Carmen, The Royal Suites Yucatan, located 40 kilometres south of the latter town, is the most ideal choice for you.
Situated in the tiny town of Akumal, this resort is located far away from the rampaging hordes of children and man children that plague the other two Mayan Riviera locales, a status guaranteed by the adults only theme of Royal Suites Yucatan.
With no less than 26 bars on site, there’s no shortage of places to wet your whistle, while those in pursuit of more wholesome pursuits will want to strap on a snorkel and mask, as this portion of the Mayan Riviera is famed for the presence of sea turtles, which frequently visit the coral reefs just offshore.
