What is the Maya Riviera?
The Maya Riviera is the tourism development south of Cancun and includes the towns and destinations of Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum. Technically outside the Maya Riviera are the destinations south of Tulum: the Sian Ka'an national park, archaeological site of Muyil, and the completely un-developed beach strip south of Tulum to Punta Allen, a well known fishing village. Further south near Chetumal and the border with Belize is the cruise ship destination of Mahaual, which is known as the "Costa Maya".

Note: "Mayan Riviera" is not the correct name of this region. The correct name is Maya Riviera (English) or Riviera Maya (Spanish).
