Explore the wonderful area of Riviera Maya

The main gateway to Riviera Maya, located on the Caribbean Sea in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, is Cancun International Airport, which has flights to various cities in the United States, Canada, South America and Europe. What’s more, it’s just two hours away from Mexico City.


The Mexican peso is the official currency. One peso is roughly equivalent to 0.05 euros or 0.06 dollars, although the exchange rate can fluctuate.


The official language of Mexico is Spanish, but sixty-nine indigenous languages and dialects are also spoken in the country, making it of the most linguistically diverse nations in the whole world.


Riviera Maya has a subtropical climate with warm and humid days practically all year round, with an average temperature of 26°C. The summer season, from June to August, is characterised by high temperatures that can reach maximums of 35°C. In winter, from November to December, the days are cooler, with average temperatures around 20°C.
