Celebrating ancestral heritage in the Riviera Maya

Part of what makes the Riviera Maya a glorious place to live and visit is the mix of contemporary, ancestral and Mexican history. The Riviera Maya as a tourist destination is quite young compared to other destinations in Mexico. Having new visitors to the area year and after year is a great way to share the diverse history of Mexico as a country, the rich history of the area and the contemporary stories that have made the Riviera Maya a place on the map. Mayan stories and heritage play a central role in the development and history of the Riviera Maya, a part of the destination that should not be missed!

Check out some of the Mayan ruins in the area that should be in your planning list when visiting any destination in the Riviera Maya!
