Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen — The Riviera Maya´s Crown Jewel Playa del Carmen (or simply ‘Playa’ as we call it) is not your typical resort community or tourist destination. Playa is vibrant, funky, and fun. Due to its regional importance and international recognition, it offers a wide variety of cultural activities. Moreover, Playa is the heart of the Riviera Maya - a small sophisticated bohem...


Izamal is a small city but big on history, it has been named “Pueblo Mágico” (magic town), a distinction that a few other places in Mexico have. But, ¿what is it so interesting about this place? As we said, Izamal is a place full of history; the city was once inhabited by a Pre-Columbian Mayan civilization. Izamal, which is Mayan for “Dew of Heaven” is also known as the city of the 5 ...


It is Mexico's largest island and is world-renowned as a divers paradise. The name of this famous scuba diving destination in Mayan means 'Land of Swallows'. Cozumel became known worldwide in the early sixties after the explorer Jacques Cousteau named it one of the most beautiful scuba diving areas of the world. Cozumel attracts tourism as both a recreational and professional scuba diving locat...


Coyoacán started off life as a village but is now a buzzing district of central Mexico City and a historical and cultural hub of the region. It still keeps its ancient ‘town’ feel, with the original plazas and narrow cobbled streets preserved - so it’s a great place to visit to gain insight into the old Mexico City. The neighborhood is a bustling maze of fantastic restaurants, bars,...


Akumal In between the towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum you will find Akumal. Its name comes from Mayan and means 'place of the turtles', and it could not have a more appropriate name! It truly is the habitat of turtles, specifically the endangered Green Sea Turtle. Akumal manages to keep a relaxed ambiance and remains true to Mexican and Mayan heritage; indeed it is rich in history. As yo...


A trio of bohemian beach life, value for money, and ancient Mayan history Gorgeous white-sand beaches, friendly and easy-going locals, good food, relaxation, and spirituality are some of Tulum´s timeless and simple pleasures. Once a sleepy hippie outpost, Tulum has become a popular destination for those searching for a relaxing and close-to-nature vacation. There are actually three places c...


Xochimilco, meaning 'flower field', is the third-largest borough in Mexico City and sits to the south of the historic centre and has a culture all of its own. Traditionally it was separate from the main area and as a result, unique traditions were built over time which later merged with those of the city. These traditions are typified by a huge network of canals and artificial islands, known as...

San Angel

Located in the southwest corner of the Alvaro Obregon borough of Mexico City, the region of San Angel was historically a rural community. It centred around a cathedral and was populated by the upper classes who were keen to keep themselves separate from the rest of the city. This continued until the mid 20th century when the monastery closed and the urban expansion of Mexico City could not be resi...

La Villa

Located in the North of Mexico City, The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, affectionately known simply as La Villa, holds huge significance for Mexican and Catholic culture alike. The church is one of the most-visited holy sites in the world with thousands of Catholics seeking to make the sacred pilgrimage to the site each year. According to the traditional account, back in 1531, Juan Diego Cu...

Sian Ka'an Biosphere
