The Riviera Maya remains a popular vacation destination for visitors from around the world.
More than 20 million international visitors came to the area during the first six months of 2018. This is a 7.3 percent increase over last year, according to Mexico’s Ministry of Tourism and as reported this week in the Riviera Maya News.
Cancun, Puerto Morelos, and Isla Mujeres are among the area’s top destinations.
With its warm weather, plentiful restaurants and shops, and diverse water activities, Cancun’s occupancy rate averaged 92 percent, higher than the area’s average of 70 percent.
The charming town of Puerto Morelos, which is about 30 minutes south of Cancun, drew an average occupancy rate of 90 percent during the summer holiday season.
Trips to Isla Mujeres were the most contracted services in the Riviera Maya. Snorkeling tours, catamaran tours, and opportunities to swim with the whale sharks drew thousands of visitors.
While the Riviera Maya is known for its turquoise blue waters and white-sand beaches, visitors are also exploring the region’s lush, tropical wonders.
The Ruta de los Cenotes in Puerto Morelos is a “must see” attraction among international travelers, Mexican tourism officials said. With 20 different options to swim, snorkel or dive, the route provides a unique adventure for visitors to explore the area’s wealth of natural beauty.
