Explore the Mayan Riviera
The Riviera Maya extends along the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula from Puerto Morelos to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. What was once all small fishing villages, much of the Riviera Maya coastline has since been developed into a modern tourist corridor offering the very best of high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf in Mexico. The Riviera Maya is home to some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in all of Mexico with expansive stretches of powdery white sand lapped by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Its secret gem is Playa del Secreto, home to Hacienda del Secreto. Hacienda del Secreto is located only 15 minutes away from Puerto Morelos, 15 minutes from Playa del Carmen and 45 minutes away from bustling downtown Cancun, making it the perfect location to have a private, relaxing stay while simultaneously being in close proximity to popular day-trip destinations such as Xcaret, Akumal, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel and more.
The Riviera Maya is one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. An expansive coral reef system extending just off the coast is home to a dizzying array of marine life including colorful tropical fish, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the Riviera Maya are not limited to the ocean. You can also go snorkeling and cave diving in the many cenotes (underground sink holes) that are unique to this Yucatan Peninsula.
The Riviera Maya is a top ecotourism destination in Mexico and throughout the region the natural environment is protected and preserved. Outside of the major tourist destinations, much of the land remains relatively undeveloped so the natural beauty of the Riviera Maya and the creatures that inhabit it are left to flourish. Local eco-parks offer a taste of all that the area has to offer in controlled, family-friendly environments.
Mexico is a country rich in history, culture and tradition, all of which you will experience when you visit the Riviera Maya. From delicious food, to dances, to mayan rituals, the Mayan Riviera stays true. Come and experience it for yourself and stay at Hacienda del Secreto.
