The Mayan Riviera is on the east coast of Mexico on a mercilessly flat piece of limestone known as the Yucatan peninsula. This area is home to the Mayans and are noticeably different to the Hollywood Mexicans we were expecting. The peninsula has beautiful beaches, expensive resorts and is riddled with caves filled with freshwater known as Cenotes.
Up the top end is Cancun which, being over commercialised and catering for the americans, we gave a miss. Tulum marks the lower end and has been more our style. We will be leaving for Belize in the morning. The last 4 days have been absolutely fantastic lying on the beach, snorkelling in Cenotes and lagoons and eating at the many varied restaurants they have here.
