Few places on earth cause as much amazement as the Riviera Maya. It is the world´s largest coral reef in the northern hemisphere, making it the perfect place to rent a boat to do scuba diving and snorkeling. Hundreds of marine species, including multi-colored tropical fish, sponges, starfish and various types of coral make up the spectacular and fragile Great Maya Reef.
What makes it so different from other coastlines around the world is its magic. A place where you can completely escape from the outside world. It is filled with natural wonders: ecological reserves, the emerald- green jungle, the incomparable turquoise blue sea and countless lost cities of the ancient Mayan civilization. Lying hidden amidst the intense green is a habitat with a rich variety of flora and fauna and geological formations that is impossible to find anywhere else in the world. It is also known for its cenotes, sweet-water deposits of different shapes and sizes, produced by the subterranean rivers which emerged to the surface over the course of millions of years.
Gay vacationers have more than just beaches to consider since some Caribbean destinations can be downright hostile.

It does not matter the color, ideology, religion or preference, everybody is welcome in this beautiful. The people living in and around Riviera Maya are by nature an extremely hospitable culture.
