Mexico

The destination

If you are looking for barefoot ‘Caribbean’ luxury but fancy something a bit different to island life then Riviera Maya is the perfect option for you. Located on the very eastern tip of Mexico this is a destination great for those looking for the sand between your toes feeling with a smattering of hippy-chic and fascinating culture. The vibes here are luxuriously low tempo by day (think sipping champagne in a hammock) with a welcomed increased pace by night.

The idyllic Caribbean coast of endless white sandy beaches and azure waters of the shores are not only perfect for cooling off between chapters, but also a mecca for some of the world’s finest dive sites with the barrier reef running from the Belizean border in the south to the Yucatan peninsula’s north-east tip.

On the shore, the majestic Mayan sites of Tulúm and Chichén Itzá are not to be missed. Tulum is spectacularly situated on a cliff top, majestically overlooking a palm-fringed beach and the turquoise Caribbean sea offering an unbeatable view. Or why not have the best of both worlds and snorkel, swim or dive through a whole network of underground limestone sinkholes.
