The most sophisticated and secluded address along Mexico’s Riviera Maya is the Banyan Tree Mayakoba. The entirely separate oasis, with PGA golf course, is cocooned by a network of lagoons. Hop on board the hotel boat tour to spot Turtles and Crocodiles.
With the Mexican jungle, Mayan archaeological sites and populous beaches minutes away, this is the definitive residence for an ultra-exclusive haven. Private beachfront allows guests their own portion of the world’s second largest coral reef.

Mexico's Riviera Maya and the Yucatan Peninsula are a great option for a Caribbean or colonial Mexico vacation. There are fabulous beaches, great reef diving/snorkeling, and the underwater world of cenotes; amazing Maya archaeological ruins; a huge and pristine Biosphere Reserve (Sian Ka'an) that's perfect for kayaking, bird watching, and animal spotting as well as two major flamingo reserves, which are home to the largest and pinkest flamingos in the world; big cities, traditional villages, gorgeous colonial towns; good food, discotheques, and bars; resorts, B&Bs, and hostels--you name it, it's almost all there. Plus, it's a quick flight from the US and Canada and, once you're there is easy to navigate by public transportation or rental car. All that plus it's considered one of the safest places to travel in Mexico. I love the area--definitely one of my favorite places to travel in the world.

First off, beautiful beaches--you can't beat the Caribbean. Then there's a good variety of places to settle down, depending on your vacation style: Playa del Carmen is liveliest (lots of nightlife), Tulum is very chilled-out (and a lot more spread out--you'll at least need a bike, if not a car) and Puerto Morelos is a very cool under-the-radar, very Mexican-feeling town. And Isla Mujeres, just across from Cancun, is nice too.
