Get to know Riviera Maya & the Yucatan with Viator

White sand beaches offer a picture-perfect frame for Cancun and the Riviera Maya, but there’s more to the Yucatan than seaside lounging. Venturing off the coast reveals colorful colonial-era cities and vibrant Maya communities that abut pyramids erected by their ancestors. It’s all proudly Yucatec: For centuries this sun-baked peninsula remained relatively inaccessible from the rest of Mexico, giving rise to foods, cultures, and traditions found nowhere else.
