The Riviera Maya

On the western side of the Caribbean, 940 miles from Cuba, is the Riviera Maya – a little piece of paradise where lush, green cliffs decorated with stunning ruins of a once great civilization meet fine, powdery sand and warm, Caribbean blue waters. A coastal corridor south of Cancun, the region is a definite tourist enclave; yet during the slow season when most people are distracted with their usual routines, here – where the simple yet continually vibrant local life is more apparent than the big resorts (that entice vacationers and promise luxuries but at a steep price) it coexists with – is where a weary soul can find respite.
