The unspoiled Caribbean coast of the Riviera Maya stretches south of Cancun for 75 miles, fronted by the second largest coral reef in the world. Tranquil powder sand beaches washed by translucent blue waters, lush tropical jungles, Mayan heritage and the spirit of Mexico all contribute to the seductiveness of this inspiring land. Rosewood Mayakoba is the heart of a 1,600-acre luxury resort enclave on the Riviera Maya just 30 minutes south of Cancun and north of the seaside village of Playa del Carmen. Visitors enjoy easy access to nearby Mayan ruins, breathtaking beaches, countless water sports, and world-class diving in the Great Mayan Reef.
