Mexico has always been quite a popular holiday destination for Americans. The Riviera Maya has become especially popular in recent years. And not only in winter, but at any time of the year. Including wealthy Americans and VIPs. It would seem that it is very simple - to buy air tickets, book a hotel and fly to Cancun. But if you want to spend your vacation in a truly luxurious resort, surrounded by luxury and beautiful nature, then you will have to carefully choose a resort. We will try to help you, but you should not hesitate, the best places are booked in advance.

Cancun's Zona Hotelera has a lot of big, really nice resorts that offer all-inclusive vacations, but they don't really appeal to luxury travelers. Many tourists from the United States prefer a more relaxing holiday. They are attracted by small luxury hotels, those where there is closeness to nature, remoteness from crowds of tourists, protection from strangers and personal service. There are not so many such resorts on the Riviera Maya coast and therefore they need to be booked in advance. The opening of new luxury hotels is planned in the coming years.

The Mayan Riviera Resort is a section of the Caribbean coast in the eastern part of the Yucatan Peninsula, south of the city of Cancun. It is believed that the "Riviera Maya" stretches from Puerto Morelos to Tulum. The Riviera Maya coast is well known to residents of the United States (as well as Canada and European countries).

Americans often choose Mexico as their vacation destination because it has a good climate, delicious food, warm sea, and great beaches. In addition, Cancun is quickly accessible (from the eastern US) and is good value for money. It is very likely that after comparing the various options and you will find yourself on the Riviera Maya on vacation. Do you prefer special, quirky, luxurious boutique hotels? They also exist in Mexico.
