Things To Do in Riviera Maya

We are always exploring to help you find Things to Do in Riviera Maya and the surrounding area.  This is a collection of posts to help you plan your activities.  Most of them we have done ourselves.  We still haven't visited many of the cenotes, but it's on our to do list.  We love to eat, so we have included restuarants we have found.  One website we find useful for information is Yucantantoday.  and one tour organization we have found to be well run is .  We could be biased, but  we feel that the Vidanta Mayan Resort, from the inexpensive  Mayan Palace to the spectacular Grand Luxxe and Spa Tower  is your best base camp for Things to Do in Riviera Maya.  If you want to see pictures of all of these we have an entire photo gallery of things to do in Riviera Maya in our Personal RandomTravel Blog
