A Journey Into Paradise

Spend a Weekend in Mexico's Riviera Maya

24 September, 2013

Since Mexico is located geographically so close to the United States,it’s little wonder that more and more Americans are heading south of the border each year for fun and a taste of luxury in the sun. In fact,this also means Mexico real estate provides the ideal place for travelers who find themselves with the opportunity for a short,last-minute getaway that will leave them feeling as though they have spent weeks away,relaxing in an exotic paradise.

Fortunately,there are plenty of flights into and out of the large,modern Cancun international airport every single day,heading back and forth from most of the major cities in the U.S.,Canada,Europe and beyond. The Riviera Maya stretches from just south of Cancun,all the way down Mexico’s Caribbean coast to the eco-chic beach town of Tulum,which offers a variety of exciting investment opportunities.

Throughout the entire region visitors will find well-appointed,luxurious resorts along with hacienda-style and a variety of other accommodations that are sure to suit any lifestyle and budget. Several of the resorts in the area,including the all-inclusive Grand Velas Riviera Maya,have even been awarded the prestigious Five Diamonds by AAA,and have also been rated as some of the world’s top resorts by Conde Nast Traveler.

One of the things many people who have never been to this part of Mexico don’t realize is just how soft the sand is and how friendly the people are. In addition,the landscape is as lush and tropical as any paradise imaginable,while kayaking,snorkeling and an enormous variety of other water sports are available just offshore near the world’s second largest barrier reef. What more could anyone ask for?

“When visiting the Riviera Maya you will be overwhelmed by the selection of places to go and things to see,” writes Marisa Churchill for the Huffington Post’s travel blog. “From snorkeling with whale sharks,to swimming in the natural occurring cenotes,to visiting the jungles.”

Her list of “not to miss” activities also includes a trip to the Kantun-Chi Eco Park,which lies along the safe,modern highway that runs between Cancun and Tulum. Other big winners for Churchill included the seaside ancient Mayan ruins in Tulum,and sampling the delectable variety of excellent Yucatecan cuisine throughout her stay.
