Puerto Aventuras is located on the Mayan Riviera, which stretches over 120 kilometres along the Mexican Caribbean coast in Quintana Roo. Thought to be a favourite vacation spot for the ancient Mayan kings, the area’s popularity endures in the 21st century. This is not only thanks to the serene beaches and balmy climate, but also to the beautiful yacht-filled marina and the town's proximity to remnants of the ancient Mayan civilisation, including pyramids, ball courts, and temples.
The city of Cancun, home to Cancun International Airport, is just over an hour away, making it a perfect travel hub for Puerto Aventuras holidays. The Mexican Caribbean is on Central Standard Time, 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-6). Those planning Puerto Aventuras holidays can rent one of the holiday houses, villas, or condos that line the beach, along with luxury hotels. The town enjoys a tropical climate, with temperatures reaching 33°Celsius in the summer, followed by cooler, drier winters.
Puerto Aventuras holidays offer tropical beaches as well as luxury restaurants and spas. The white sand beaches are made up of coral and sea shell, and the waters of the Caribbean reflect the changing colours of the sky. Active travellers can play tennis and golf, or head into the water for snorkelling, diving, deep-sea fishing or sailing. A short distance from town are the eco-archaeological parks of X’caret (showcasing Mayan culture), Xplor (featuring limestone caves and underwater rivers) and Xel’Ha, where one can swim with dolphins and see a variety of marine life.
There are many other sights along the Riviera Maya, such as the ruins of the ancient Mayan town of Tulum, to the south, or the rapidly expanding Playa del Carmen, 20 minutes to the north. Known as the 'heart of the Riviera Maya, it offers holidaymakers a wide selection of shops, as well as bars, cafes and a cinema.
