Travel: Holidays in the Riviera Maya

Hi! I’m Shelley from Shelley Hearts.
My blog is a mixture of beauty, travel and lifestyle, so while Charli is on holiday, I thought I would bring a little bit of my travel knowledge to her blog!
I’m a travel agent, so I spend my days helping people go on their dream holidays. At this time of year it can be hard to find somewhere to go with the beautiful weather we are seeking during our winter months. Mexico is absolutely perfect and ticks all the boxes.
There are two main areas in Mexico that people flock to for the stunning white beaches, luxurious resorts and incredible excursions – those being Cancun and the Riviera Maya. Charli is lucky enough to be off to the Riviera Maya on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico so I thought I’d tell you a bit more, leaving Charli to show off her holiday pictures and what she got up to when she gets back!
It’s currently around 30 degrees in the Riviera Maya. It enjoys a tropical climate with warm temperatures year round and only has two seasons – wet and dry. The coolest it tends to get is around 23 degrees in February, which is hardly cold!
The thing that really appeals to me about the Riviera Maya is that you have got some amazing excursions – something that I find the Caribbean can sometimes lack. Within easy travelling distance you have the cliff-edge Mayan temple in Tulum, plus you can go and see the ruins at Chichen Itza so it’s the perfect way to get a bit of history into your trip!
The divers and snorkelers among you can enjoy the translucent waters and corals of the Mesoarmerican Reef which is the second largest barrier reef in the world.
You actually fly into Cancun to get to Riviera Maya – British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Thomson and Thomas Cook all fly direct and you can get some amazing flight prices if you travel in off-peak times such as October, February and May. You’re never going to miss out on the weather so it’s worth going at these times to save a bit of money.

I hope that has given you a bit more insight into Riviera Maya, you can always ask me any questions if you need any more advice on your next adventure! I for one, am really looking forward to seeing Charli’s pictures when she gets back, especially on that new camera of hers!
Have you been to the Riviera Maya? What was your favourite part?

  1. It sounds lovely! When there's talk of holidays it makes me sad that I'm a teacher because it's always more expensive for me! I look forward to seeing the photos Charli xx
