Riviera Maya, Sun and Beach, everybody wins

Riviera Maya’s great beaches, hotels and resorts and other important destinations in the country receive special attention from President Enrique Peña Nieto’s tourism plan. This new initiative aims to strength existing destinations and highlight the vast diversity in the country.

Riviera Maya is synonymous of luxury travel, whether for spa vacations, all-inclusive resorts, fine dining or world-class shopping.

This beautiful area is already recognized as a top family destination with its luxurious spas and exclusive getaways. From hosting Hollywood’s elite in every movie premiere along this year, to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders for their swimsuit calendar shoot, Riviera Maya has long since been recognized as an optimal beach destination.

The luxury travel network Virtuoso ranked Mexico number two in the world in luxury destinations, second only to Italy. The Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Playa de Carmen was named Best Spa in the World by Virtuoso and also earned a SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Award.  In its 2013 Luxe Report, Mexico was ranked among the top five family luxury destinations in the world.

Apart from maintaining great hotspots, the goals of sun and beach tourism also involve strengthening security at beaches as well as promoting lesser-known resorts. Last April, the Mexican government launched “Operation Spring Breakers 2013” to ensure safety for college students who descend upon sandy beaches. And for those who desire a more laid-back vacation, the tourism plan highlights quaint resort areas such as  Tulum. Though removed from the popular destinations Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Tulum is both a luxury and cultural oasis for the bohemian-spirited.

Its geographic location is a privilege and a vast array of cultural, natural, and historical attractions, Riviera Maya is a dream destination for any tourist. President Peña Nieto has made significant strides towards a burgeoning tourism industry by recognizing this wealth as well as its potential for growth. His plan not only keeps tourists safe and happy, but also contributes to the Mexico’s economic and social prosperity.

The Riviera Maya is one of Mexico’s leading destinations, with ten of Mexico’s sixteen AAA Five Diamond properties located in that region.

Certainly the growth of this area brings new investment opportunities that are targeted by thousands of people around the world. For vacation, invest in a business or live in paradise, we can advise you.
