The Riviera Maya stretches from Cancun in the north to Tulum in south and is one of the most incredible places in Mexico or the world.  Lush jungle vegetation, beautiful wildlife and incredible beaches make up the majority of this area, interspersed with all-inclusive resorts, sunbathing travelers and ancient Mayan ruins.  Why visit the Riviera Maya?  Whether you want snorkeling and scuba, jungle exploration and archaeology, or simply desire to bask in the splendor of the Mexican sun, this area is incredible.  However, the beaches constitute one of the largest draws for tourists in the area.  What beaches are worth your time?  Here are some of the best beaches for your enjoyment.

Akumal – Akumal technically has several beaches, Half Moon Bay, Akumal Bay, Jade Beach, South Akumal and Aventuras Akumal.  Akumal Bay is one of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in the area and is ideal for those seeking fun in the sun.

Paamul is a more secluded beach, offering a mixture of white sands and limestone.  The barrier reef beyond the beach is a great spot for a dive; you will also enjoy a dive shop, quaint shops and dining options designed for travelers.

Playa Del Carmen – This beach is one of the most frequented by tourists.  The explosion of resort growth in the area makes this the perfect spot for enjoying other tourists, as well as fine hospitality and fun.  You will find numerous scuba and snorkel rentals, jet ski rentals and guided tours from the beach.

Puerto Morelos – This is a natural beach, so expect seaweed and shells at certain times of the year.  Some areas of the beach are raked for sunbathers, though.  This beach is a great place for those looking for a little peace and quiet; resorts to the north and south of the beach offer raked beauty for those looking to simply enjoy the sand.

Tulum – This quite village offers wide sandy beaches and great surf.  Bungalows nestle on the water and several ruins perch on the rocky outcrops nearby.  The beach here is a great place for family fun or for surfing and windsurfing.

The best option for pristine beaches in the Riviera Maya is to stay with one of the resorts.  Visiting will help you find the rooms you need and the price that you can live with to make the most of your vacation.
