Highlights on the Riviera Maya which are not to be missed include: La Gran Costa Maya, stretching for 130 kilometres along the southern coast of Quintana Roo. It is located to the south of well-known tourist destination Cancún, and its main draw are its beautiful, undeveloped beaches.
Specifically, there’s Chetumal, which in the Mayan language means “the place where the red trees grow.” Places of interest located in Chetumal include the Cultural Museum, the Zoo and the government palace, with its interesting murals. Others include the El Palmar spa, Punta Lagarto, El Guerrero Lagoon and the waterfall and lagoon at Bacalar, with the seven freshwater wells that feed it.
Enjoy a tour on foot or by bicycle in this area, which was founded by sailors and offers a great cultural richness. Admire the exceptional landscape, the beautiful sunsets and the marvellous singing of the birds who nest in nearby trees as night falls. Chetumal is a cultural centre whose dirt paths lead you to archaeological areas filled with magic, with picturesque communities that preserve the charm of the people.
