3. Riviera Maya, Mexico

travel insurance

Riviera Maya is a sought-after Caribbean coastline on the Yucatán Peninsula, with white-sand beaches, seaside resorts, and appealing, turquoise-colored waters. The region begins in the village of Puerto Morelos and finishes at Punta Allen, just south of the bustling metropolis of Cancun. The key cities along the way include Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

If you prefer to cruise, Cozumel, a short ferry journey from Playa del Carmen, is one of Mexico’s most popular ports, with plenty of low-cost options available at any time of year. If you want some peace and quiet, stay away from spring break.

Visitors to this region can select from all-inclusive resorts in Playa del Carmen (some with adults-only pools) or modest, eco-friendly coastal hotels in laid-back places like Tulum and Akumal, all of which offer considerable discounts (best for turtle watching).

Some of these lodgings are so rustic that there may be moments when you don’t have power, but who needs air conditioning when you can jump into the cool waters? Visit the UNESCO-listed Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve for unspoiled beaches and an unforgettable trip.
