Known for its sun, sand, and spectacular archaeological sites, Mexico’s Riviera Maya is a true paradise.
The Riviera Maya—a stretch of coastline along the Caribbean in the Yucatán Peninsula—has long been famous for its beaches, nightlife, and delicious local fare. In addition to its stunning white sand and crystal clear waters, the area offers archaeologists a peek into the ancient world of the Maya. The still-intact ruins of temples and buildings at Chichén Itzá, Tulum, or Ek Balam bear witness to the Maya’s many sophisticated achievements.

Jazmin was terrific. You need better internal communication with guides. She was not told our tour price included lunch until I told her and she had to check back etc. You also need to find a better lunch option for this trip. Both food and service was mediocre at best.

Luis was a fantastic guide. Knowledgeable, kind, and funny. He made us feel very comfortable and was able to answer all our questions. When the cenote we had planned to go to was closed he didn’t miss a beat and quickly found us another one nearby to stop at. He went out of his way to take pictures for us. He also took us to one of the best meals of our lives at a spot he had personally discovered.

Luis is a very excellent guide and extremely personable. His breadth of knowledge about Mexican history from Mayan times through the 20th century knocked us out - a fellow traveler was keen on the pop quiz questions. He's also great with flora, fauna and food.
