Eco-Adventure Riviera Maya, Mexico star
Eco-adventures abound in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. At Hidden Worlds, not far from Tulum, we snorkel underground rivers, pedal a SkyCycle at tree-top height, and fly along a zipline. What we especially like about Hidden Worlds are the choices and the small group experience.

Explore Cenotes, Riviera Maya, Mexico star
Mexico’s Riviera Maya is known for its hundreds of cenotes, or underground rivers. At Xplor, a $20 million eco-adventure park, raft through a winding cenote, at Rio Secreto walk and swim and at Alux, dine inside one.

The Riviera Maya, which stretches along Mexico’s coast for 86-miles from just south of Puerto Morelos to Punta Allen, is known for its hundreds of cenotes. However, Río Secreto, opened to the public in April 2008,is a jewel in region’s extensive system of underground rivers.

Great Finds, Los Cabos, Mexico star
In Los Cabos, Mexico, bars and bikinis abound, but the prime Baja peninsula vacation destination also offers great food, interesting boutiques and upscale resorts.Los Cabos consists of Cabo San Lucas,a magnet for spring breakers and San Jose del Cabo, the quieter, Spanish colonial city.

Top Resorts: Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Mexico star
The Grand Velas Riviera Maya Resort is for those who like all-inclusive resorts and, especially for those who don’t. Situated on 200 acres in the Riviera Maya not far from Playa del Carmen, Grand Velas is a rarity: an all-inclusive property that’s earned AAA’s highest rating of Five Diamonds.

Tulum and Xel-Há, Riviera Maya, Mexico star
From atop the cliffside Castillo (castle)in Tulum, the crashing waves and the calls of the sea birds conjure visions of this once-vital Maya sea port. Combine a cultural visit here with river tubing and swimming with dolphins at Xel-Ha,a nearby eco-adventure park.
