Are you ready for some fun? You can’t beat the Riviera Maya as a fun holiday destination. It is one of the most visited places in the world, and I assure you, you will have a blast! It offers you all that goes into making a holiday perfect. The startling blue of the Caribbean Sea with its brilliant marine life, the emerald jungles alive with hundreds of varieties of birds, the mystic ruins of a civilization long gone and a liberal sprinkling of boutique hotels that make  your stay special and comfortable.  Taking it all in can be a bit of a challenge. So here are ten tours that promise to give you a taste of Mexico – not too much, not too little, but just right!

1. Eco-Archaeological Tripping

Xcaret, an eco-themed park that offers on it’s plate a myriad reasons to visit. The amazing varieties of birds, the cultivation of plants indigenous to Mexico, and water, which is so much part of the Mayan Riviera, the unusual water adventures to immerse oneself in, and all this cleverly planned around the archaeological restorations in the park. Everything just comes together to bring alive the history and the culture of this wonderful, warm, colorful and generous land. The culmination of the tour is an evening at the amphitheater, a world class entertainment full of surprises and traditional music. A day well spent, an evening that thrills, will definitely leave you with the resolve to come back for more…

2. The Underwater People

Scuba divers, whether you are a novice or an expert, this wonderful, unusual experiment in eco-conservation is for you. An underwater artistic museum. Yes, that’s right, art under water. This is a man made reef that was thought up by three men who got together and conceived of this project. One of them, Jason DeCaires Taylor, a British artist, created more than 400 life size sculptures and had them installed underwater to protect the marine life in the area. Aquaworld, Cancun organizes dives into this startlingly beautiful seascape and it really is not one to be missed.
