The Traveller's Guide: The Mayan Riviera

Where the jungle meets the ocean, some of the finest white sand and warm Caribbean waters can be found across Mexico's Yucatán Peninsulais which is also the home of the historic Mayan Ruins.

Whether you are looking for a fuss free, all-inclusive break just outside of Mexico's energetic Cancun or a blissful retreat in Tulum's "pueblo" where you can explore a variety of eclectic restaurants and bars, The Mayan Riviera offers a luxurious escape for both families, couples & young adults who are seeking sunshine & turquoise waters.


Starting at the bottom, the Riviera's coastal town of Tulum has the beauty of both Mexico's finest beach and the dramatic Mayan ruins. Enjoy cocktails and a taste of Italy along the beach front at Posada Margherita or venture in-land for authentic Mexican food at El Tabano and finish the night at Gitano for drinks and dancing.

Word on the street says your final night in Tulum should be spent at Hartwood which is recommended as the best restaurant, jungle side. Chef and owners Eric Werner & Mya Henry cook with the freshest locally sourced ingredients in the glow of their wood fired oven and candlelit tables which makes the perfect end to a blissful retreat.


Further up the coast hides Banyan Tree's luxurious Mayakoba resort which offers Playa Del Carmen's first all-pool villa resort.

With their signature Asian hospitality and and eco-haven ethos, the resort offers a sanctuary for the senses where you can make the most of the immaculate coastline with some snorkeling or enjoy the serenity of the Spa where award-winning treatments including use of the spa facilities, otherwise known as the Rainforest trail offer detox and wellness for guests.

The resort's 7 on-site restaurants and in-villa dining option provides plenty of variety for a weeks stay and we particularly recommend the Ixchel dining boat which offers a unique dining experience as you sail through the canals of Mayakoba.


During your stay, be sure to have a suitcase packed full of boho inspired styles with an earthy colour palette; we love the Caracas in Rust, Tiggy in Dusty Pink & Amalfi in Sparkle.

With child-friendly facilities, this resort is hard to say no to for the couple seeking the epitome of relaxation: Book your stay at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba resort now!
