Riviera Maya Revealed

From exploring ancient Maya wonders to sunken natural treasures, check out just a few of the Amstar excursions waiting for you in Riviera Maya.

Take the dive.
There’s no two ways about it: once you’ve seen the myriad blues of the Caribbean Sea shining in front of you, you’re going to want to get in the water. Amstar’s Caribbean Combo Snorkel tour combines the best of sailing and snorkeling for a daytrip you won’t forget. Set sail on a stunning catamaran and cruise off the coast of Cozumel. You’ll take a dip along the Palancar and Colombia reefs which are part of the Mesoamerican Reef—the second-largest barrier reef in the world.

For a family-friendly water adventure, look no further than Xel-Ha, the world’s largest natural water park. You can snorkel among schools of prismatic fish, float down rivers and explore hidden caves.

Mayan wonder.
Some of the Riviera Maya’s most magical experiences are tucked away in the lush jungle. Discover one of the Seven Wonders of the World with the Chichen Itza Deluxe tour. You’ll hop aboard a deluxe bus to the archeological site of the towering Temple of Kukulcan and the mystical Observatory. After exploring the ancient architectures, refuel with local delicacies at the Pueblo Maya restaurant and cool off with a dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Ik Kil cenote.

To take your archaeological site-seeing sea-side, try the Tulum Xel-Ha combination tour. But be warned: you’ll be jealous of the view ancient Mayas woke up to. Explore the ruins perched over the Caribbean Sea and then freshen up at Xel-Ha.

Unexpected adventure.
To take the road less traveled, try the Cozumel Jeep Adventure tour. You’ll explore the little island’s treasures via scenic backroads and world-class snorkeling. You’ll find a natural attraction to ancient temple of San Gervasio constructed in tribute to the Mayan goddess of love and fertility. Then refresh with a trip to a Mexican tequila factory where it’s always happy hour. From there, head to the island’s undeveloped coast to kick back on a beautiful virgin beach and to explore the Punta Sur Eco Beach Park where the Celarain Lighthouse offers a stunning panoramic view.

Rest assured not all adventure off the beaten path is gritty. Get glamourous with Amstar’s Luxury Sailing tour to Isla Mujeres. Ease into the day with a refreshing onboard beverage and then soak up the sun on deck. You’ll stop at some snorkeling hotspots and have the chance to meander through the colorful streets of Isla Mujeres. Back on board, the party amps up as you set sail for the mainland.

If these experiences are just what you’re after but you’re planning on another paradise, no worries. Amstar features excursions throughout Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Costa Rica and Hawaii.
