Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Riviera Maya Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Riviera Maya, Mexico discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Riviera Maya hotel for each day and each star rating category.

A popular tourism and resort district, the Riviera Maya is world famous for its all-inclusive resorts, boutique hotels, historic ruins, fine-dining restaurants, and pedestrian-friendly shopping. Being such a rich historic area, archaeology is naturally a major tourist draw, with popular sites like Chichen Itza, Coba, and Tulum attracting countless visitors each year. Even the popular ecoparks Xel-Ha and Xcaret feature small archaeological ruins as part of their attractions.

Other popular activities throughout the Riviera Maya include snorkeling, Jet-Skiing, swimming in cenotes, zip-lining, swimming with dolphins, horseback riding, and going on guided tours.

Whatever your reason for visiting Mexico's Riviera Maya, it's important to find the ideal hotel that allows you to enjoy everything this Caribbean coastal destination has to offer.

When to Visit the Riviera Maya, Mexico

During the summer rainy season, the Riviera Maya is extremely hot and humid. This period lasts from May to September, which can make a stay here unbearable if you can't stand the heat. One good thing about visiting the Yucatan Peninsula in the summer is that it's relatively protected from hurricanes. You may experience strong storms, but rarely a full-fledged hurricane. Because summers can be so stifling, hotel rates tend to drop.

The winter months from December to April are considered the Riviera Maya's peak tourist season. Many travelers escape cold northern climates in order to enjoy a week or two in Caribbean paradise, so hotel rates tend to skyrocket. You'll also experience more crowds at the resorts and area attractions, but the weather is pleasantly mild, and you don't run the risk of dealing with rainfall.

For the best of both worlds – fewer crowds and great hotel rates – try traveling during the shoulder seasons. Late April to early May and late November to early December are relatively uncrowded, and you can find amazing deals on hotel rates.

Top Attractions in the Riviera Maya, Mexico

With so much to experience in the Riviera Maya, planning your itinerary can feel a bit overwhelming. If you're interested in historical sites, be sure to book a group tour to Tulum or Chichen Itza. Depending on where you're staying, a tour to these ruins can last all day, so bring plenty of bottled water, sunscreen, and a wide-brimmed hat.

Swimming in cenotes, or natural water-filled sinkholes, is a popular tourist pastime. Many tours to nearby ruins include stopping at cenotes for a swim, so be sure to book your reservations early to ensure you can participate in this beloved activity.

Playa del Carmen is noted for its shops, but you'd be surprised at how vibrant the nightlife is. A trip to the Riviera Maya wouldn't be complete without a visit to one of the city's local hotspots, particularly the Coco Bongo nightclub. Keep in mind, though, that the nightlife in Playa del Carmen tends to start late, so don't expect the fun to get underway until after 11 p.m.

Whether you're looking for an upscale all-inclusive with all the trimmings or an understated beachfront accommodation that won't break the bank, the Riviera Maya region offers a little something for everyone.
