So, you’re excited to start traveling again! This holiday season, it’s to the Riviera Maya in Mexico, but you’re unsure how to spend your time there. While you can stay cooped up in a resort during your whole visit, this is no way to create an unforgettable experience. Resorts may be entertaining at first, but they are nothing compared to the wonders and natural beauty found off resort property. So, to help you make the most out of your trip to the Riviera Maya, here is a list of some locations that’ll undoubtedly create memories that you’ll cherish for many years to come.
The Underwater Museum
Buried beneath the waves in the Riviera Maya is a collection of over 400 life-like statues. It’s best to view the aquatic museum through a scuba mask, and it is undoubtedly a view you won’t forget. These sculptures act like a human-made reef, which was initially created by a group of artists who hoped to inspire the local sea-life protection. Whether you’ve never put on a scuba mask or are something of an expert, anyone can dive down to this spectacular and unforgettable sight.
Visit the Mayan Underworld
While this may seem unsettling at first, the vast network of caves near Rio Secreto is a sight to behold. Carved by a complex underground system, the caves wind through the bedrock for miles. Keep in mind that this adventure is not for the faint of heart, as it includes plenty of tight spaces, hiking, and time spent in cold, dark, and wet places. If you’re up to the challenge, the reward is a memorable sight of a beautifully submerged world far and away from anything you could have ever imagined.
Explore the Mayan Ruins of Coba
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be in an archeological site before a dig, Coba’s ancient Mayan city may be the next best thing. Coba is an overgrown ancient ruin, located near four natural lakes. Jungle and Mayan architecture contrast side-by-side, creating a sight you won’t find at other ancient Mayan cities like Tulum and Chichen Itza. Visitors can even snorkel in the four natural lakes’ turquoise-tinted waters and be blown away by the abundance of life nestled below.
