The Riviera Maya, an 80-mile stretch of coast located in
the Yucatan peninsula between Cancun in the north and Tulum in the
south, is amazingly full of things to do.
CAVERN AND CAVE DIVING:
Within 30 miles of Tulum are well over
50 cenotes/cave systems to explore.
the Mexican Caribbean offers great diving, from the walls of Cozumel to
the soft corals and sponges around Tulum. A fanstastic
location for technical diving and training, with various depth plateaus
reaching down to satisfy even the most extreme mixed-gas diving,
the Yucatan peninsula is studded with
pre-Columbian Mayan temples and archaeological sites such as Cobá,
Chichen Itza, Ek Balam and Tulum. You will find plenty of opportunity
to find something for your family and friends back home,
beautiful white beaches to relax on or for
all kinds of water sports on the clear turquoise Caribbean waters,

HOW TO GET HERE:
Fly into Cancun airport (airport code: CUN), Tulum is less
than 90 minutes south on Highway 307. The road is two lanes in each
direction all the way from Cancun airport to Tulum, making
traveling by road a lot less stressful!!!
You can rent your own vehicle (we can help you with that as well), you
can use the "colectivo" service in any direction or you can call a taxi.
Located just within the tropics, the Riviera Maya enjoys sunshine most
of the year, with temperatures ranging from 75°F+ (25°C+) in the winter
to 90°F+ (30°C+) in the summer.
The winter months tend to be drier and evenings are usually pleasantly
cool, whereas the summer months can be very humid and hot, even at
night. However, we are blessed with a year-round breeze that takes the
edge off the heat.
