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!
