Ten Things to do on the Mayan Riviera

1.Visit the Tulum Mayan ruins and beach. one of my favourite trips, take a guided tour and admire the Mayan culture,then take a swim at the Caribbeans most beautiful beach.

2.Take in a Shopping trip at Playa del Carmen,Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue) here you can be expected to barter for your goods ,look out for Mexican bags and hammocks.

3. Go snorkeling and swimming in one of many Cenotes, these are natural limestone and coral wells that lead to underground rivers.

4. Hop on a ferry to Cozumel, the largest island in the Caribbean Sea of Mexico.More great snorkeling as it has the second largest reef in the well as more Myan culture!

5.Buy some authentic Mexican vanilla. There is No other vanilla that compares to Mexican vanilla.

6.Thrill seekers can try out the zip-lines and experience the fantastic adrenalin rush as you fly over the jungle at Tulum Extreme, They have the longest and fastest in the area at 865 ft.

7. Have an all-inclusive day out at Xel-Ha, a natural eco-park and the worlds largest aquarium. Start at the natural lazy river where there is a relaxing float down on inner tubes to the lagoon for some great snorkeling.
