Riviera Maya Excursions

Excellence Riviera Cancun is situated on the sacred coastline of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, an area steeped in history, mystery and beauty. We invite you to explore Mayan attractions, both ancient and contemporary.

Here’s a sampling of the adventures that await:

Explore sacred Mayan archeological sites—unlike any other place on Earth—such as the ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba. You’ll discover why Chichen Itza was recently declared one of the “7 Modern Wonders of the World.”

Visit Playa del Carmen and its uber-trendy Quinta Avenida—Fifth Avenue for lively night out of restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Swim with dolphins, sea lions and manatees

Zipline through the Yucatan jungle

Enjoy the nightlife, dining and shopping of downtown Cancun.

Take a swim in the famous sweet waters of cenotes—5 million-year-old wells formed from sinkholes--at Aktun Chen Natural Park or Kantun Chi Ecopark.

Snorkel or scuba dive at the Great Mayan Reef, the largest coral reef in the northern hemisphere, for thrilling encounters with coral gardens, atolls and marine life.

Book an ecotour at Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage that spans more than one million areas of marshes, mangrove forests, reefs, cenotes and unexcavated ruins.
Pet a shark, snuba—a cross between snorkeling and scuba—or take an underwater “Sea Trek” walk

Take the plunge in the world’s largest natural aquarium
