Forbes, the US magazine specializing in the world of business and finance that in this 2017 is celebrating a hundred years in circulation, has named the Riviera Maya as the best place in the world to vacation.

Perhaps this does not sound so surprising, especially since in recent decades, the reputation of this vast tourist destination has grown exponentially nationally and internationally. However, it should be noted that the competition is strong. Only at a regional level, other Caribbean regions such as Jamaica, the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic have tried to snatch the fame created. In addition, worldwide other destinations with different characteristics have grabbed attention at one time or another. Ibiza for example, which for a time was the electronic capital of the world; Or Dubai, with its iconic buildings, state-of-the-art technology and first-class living standards; Including New York and its hundreds and hundreds of tourist attractions, activities to do and secrets to explore.

Even so, no other destination has taken away from the Mayan Riviera the position in Forbes’ opinion. In the article, it highlights the characteristics that distinguish it: «beaches of clear water, thick jungles with pre-Hispanic vestiges and the most exclusive places to vacation», expanding its recommendations to nearby places (which are not precisely within the Riviera) such as Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Felipe Carrillo Puerto.


Many things to do and many places to do nothing

Forbes adds to the world view that the Riviera Maya has the best beaches in Mexico. It emphasizes Playa del Secreto, an almost virgin place that witnesses the calm that reigns in this part of the Caribbean Sea, Playa Paraiso, which has similar characteristics, and Playa Maroma as unique and unforgettable experiences. These places are ideal for those days when you feel like doing nothing, when your goals are just to let yourself go and relax surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape.

Among the recommended activities is the practice of diving and snorkeling, exploring the archaeological zones that are near the sea – something unique in the country – and the tasting of the wide gastronomic offer – local and international – that can be found In the hundreds of restaurants led by the best chefs internationally.

It is also advisable to visit the emblematic ecological parks Xcaret and Xel-Ha to appreciate and immerse themselves in the natural environment, as well as Xplor for those who seek a good dose of action and adrenaline. In addition, it suggests taking the Tulum Xtreme Tour, a jungle walk that culminates in the tour of the archaeological zone, an emblem of the Riviera Maya and the entire state of Quintana Roo, which captivates everyone equally with its magic and beauty.




An authentic experience

However, Forbes’ article addresses a perspective focused on traditional tourism, recommending in its section «Where to stay?» Four luxury hotels that qualify as «perfect»: Viceroy Riviera Maya, Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun and Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita. And although these are excellent options, there is another point of view that is worth considering: that of living the Riviera Maya instead of staying in it. And is that delighting in gastronomy and travel its emblematic points is not everything, there is an enormous value that is obtained only by immersing yourself in the lifestyle of the region, using a holiday residence, a concept that has gained strength And popularity because it combines the luxury, comfort, services and amenities you find in a five-star resort hotel with the warmth, privacy and atmosphere that is only found in a private home. Staying in a condominium of this type, or even in a residential hotel, whose concept is similar, will give your vacation an authenticity and an approach to the locality that you will not find in a five star hotel that is in the middle of The jungle, away from the local atmosphere and the beautiful people that gives life to the Riviera Maya.
