Riviera Maya Vacations & Travel Tips

Fast Facts

Riviera Maya is approximately 50 miles south of Cancun. The drive from Cancun to Riviera Maya typically takes 80 minutes.  Both Cancun & Riviera Maya share an airport, the Cancun International Airport.

The elusive jaguar found throughout the Riviera Maya’s jungles is the largest wildcat in the Americas, measuring more than six feet long.

Riviera Maya is home to three of the world’s largest underwater cave systems. Its entry points are fresh-water limestone holes known as Cenotes (pronounced say-noh-tays). These otherworldly entryways were once believed to be sacred by the ancient Mayans. Even today, their natural beauty continues to elicit feelings of awe.
