Nobody can resist the excitement of visiting the balmiest beaches of the world, all of which accentuate the natural beauty and historical glory of one of the most visited tourist destinations in South America – the Mayan Riviera! These beaches are the one that make Mayan Riviera a must-visit place on the Yucatan Peninsula map for the travelers.
These Mexican beaches are open to the public and there are no private beaches reserved for only the hotels situated behind it. You may not be able to use the amenities of various hotels provided on the beach but can stroll around on the beach whenever you want to. And yes, there are some beach clubs who rent cabanas and chairs to help you relax under bright sun. Most beaches are manicured and are close to hotel rooms for offering great view of the sunrise and sunset. One of the exciting ways to visit different beaches when visiting here is by hiring a boat.
This one is absolutely the most serene and breathtaking beach on this planet, where the turquoise blue water and white sand together provide a great view. It is one of the most secluded beaches in the region located near Playa del Carmen (takes 1-hour journey on Highway). You can choose to hike through the jungle to explore the ancient stone edifice of this walled city and admire the startling vista of the blue Caribbean Sea against the backdrop of the cliffs and ruins.
