The Riviera Maya extends along the Caribbean coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. Rich in archaeological treasures, such as the ancient Mayan city of Tulum, the region is a top ecotourism destination with plenty of family-friendly attractions, including Aktun Chen's five million year-old cave. The Yucatán Peninsula is also home to the largest coral reef system in the northern hemisphere and the second largest in the world, making for excellent snorkelling and cave diving in the many cenotes (underground sink holes) of the area.
