The Mexican Caribbean is not only a delightful vacation, it is also a great opportunity to see numerous monuments of ancient history and local nature. Dolphin Discovery advises you to visit the Riviera Maya.


Due to the fact that this part of Mexico has become a tourist destination relatively recently, the flora and fauna of the region is distinguished by its diversity. Riviera Maya is a paradise in every way! Here you can get acquainted with the amazing underwater world of the coral reef, which is the second largest in the world, swim in the purest water of underground lakes, walk through the jungle and relax on the snow-white beaches of the azure Caribbean Sea.

People and security

As for the resort areas, there is nothing to worry about at all: the streets are well lit in the evening, and the police keep order. By the way, many hotels are located in separate protected areas. There are shops and cafes, but only tourists or staff can get there, for example, by taxi. There are barriers with inspectors at the entrance to the zone, the same check is at the entrance to each hotel.

The locals are balanced, smiling and calm, do not talk loudly on the street and are not intrusive. If you observe people, they give the impression of being very happy with life.

Places of interest

Riviera Maya has several historical complexes that are located near the resort towns. Chichen Itza is the most famous of them.
