A report by the CBS affiliate in San Antonio shows that Mexico’s Riviera Maya is continuing to see strong tourism numbers,with many resorts "seeing a big spike in occupancy this spring break.” The region is renowned worldwide for its fabulous beaches,safety and luxurious yet affordable lifestyle.
According to the article,Riviera Maya real estate is an increasingly popular destination for singles,couples and families with children of all ages. In addition,the region’s many fabulous resorts – such as the famed Mayakoba,which is home to the Banyan Tree,Fairmont and Rosewood luxury hotels – are attracting repeat business,with many families opting to visit several times a year.
“We probably come down four times a year,” shared tourist Jamie Gotlieb of Dallas. “It’s a very easy two hour direct flight from Texas.”
Although the flight may be brief,the Riviera Maya truly seems to be a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the real world. Here,visitors can either walk,ride a bike,take a buggy or hop a boat to go eat dinner,thanks to the region’s warm year round temperatures and generally fabulous weather.
“The first two months of this year have been absolutely superb,” shared James Bat,vice president of operations for Mayakoba. “One hotel has seen a fifty percent increase in revenue over last year.”
The Rivera Maya offers plenty of entertainment options for all ages and adventure levels. From gorgeous white sand beaches framing the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean,to eco-friendly tours by boat through the area’s many scenic mangroves,the combination of jungle and beach is literally breathtaking. In addition,security is “not a concern” for visitors and the region is not included on the U.S. State Department’s list of travel warnings. In fact,the area is actually much safer than many cities in the U.S. So what are you waiting for? Come visit Mexico’s Riviera Maya and see for yourself what all the fuss is about!
