The state of Quintana Roo, located in Southern Mexico, is a very attractive destination and perfect for tourists since it is home to wonderful places like Cancun, Riviera Maya, Tulum, Isla Mujeres and Cozumel, just to name a few. In fact, the famous Riviera Maya includes from Puerto Morelos to the town of Felipe Carillo Puerto, which you will visit if you travel to Chetumal, and it is considered part of what is known as the Mayan world.
The places we have mentioned in Quintana Roo are world-famous for their paradisiacal landscapes, their wide variety of activities for the entire family, exquisite dining options, impeccable service, and the unparalleled beauty of their Mayan ruins such as Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
We will recommend the gems you must discover during your next visit to the Mexican paradise:
Not many tourists are aware, but Cancun is a 14-mile-long island where the “hotel zone,” a concentration of hotels and resorts, is located. Two bridges connect this island that resembles the number 7 to the mainland: the Calinda, 2.5 miles from downtown, and the Nizuc, at the other end of the city towards the airport and the Riviera Maya.
The main city is located on the mainland and its beaches are really beautiful because of the turquoise colors of the sea. Plus, every night you will find a party in Cancun since the mix of different nationalities turns the Party Center into a space for large doses of multicultural entertainment for every type of budget.
Playa del Carmen
It is one its visitors’ favorite destinations since it is an idyllic place located in the heart of the Riviera Maya that offers them beaches with fine white sand and a sea with bluish-green hues; it is a perfect paradise for resting all day.
But if you prefer action, there are water activities like windsurfing, jet skis, kayaking, and diving to see the impressive Mayan coral reef. Also, some of the greatest Mexican and international jazz musicians offer concerts there every year on certain dates.
It is an area that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its incredible Mayan ruins, sitting on a cliff facing the Caribbean Sea. This is one of the best places in the area—and perhaps in the entire country—to take photos because Tulum is a world-famous archaeological site.
Known as the lagoon of the seven colors, Bacalar is one of the places you will like the most in Quintana Roo.
This small town has been considered a Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) for ten years. It was founded by the Mayans around 415 AD, who called it Sian Ka’an Bakhalal. For centuries, it and the Mayan people were attacked by pirates, who fought over control of the blackwood tree trade. These conflicts led to the fortification of the city and the Fort of San Felipe was built.
A spot that you mustn’t miss is the Cenote Azul, a circular body of water over 984 feet across and 295 feet deep. Other activities you can do around the area are snorkeling, diving, and catamaran, boat, and kayak trips. You can also visit Biomaya Park which has zip lines for flying over the jungle and lagoon.
This wonderful place is one of Quintana Roo’s best-kept secrets since it is a paradisiacal island located in the Caribbean Sea and is considered one of the destinations that everyone should visit at least once in their lives.
If you want to totally relax, you will find panoramic pools, hammocks, and lounge chairs at the beach. If what you are looking for is adventure and entertainment, this is the best place because the calm water and spectacular coral reefs off the western side are the perfect choices for snorkeling and diving, even for beginners.
