Puerto Aventuras is one of the most popular destination cities along the stretch of Yucatan coastline known as the Mexican Riviera. Visitors come here from all over the world to experience the culture and history of the Mayan people, the celebratory nightlife, and the extraordinary biodiversity. During the day, there are plenty of adventures to be had here; take a jeep through the rough terrain of the jungle and learn about rare species of butterflies and birds, explore the ancient historical sites with a friendly and informative guide, or simply relax on the beach and play in the waves. After the sun goes down, head into downtown Puerto Aventuras for creative Mexican cuisine prepared by world-class chefs and dance until dawn at some of the area's popular night clubs and live music venues.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip:
-Tour the Mayan Ruins: Like many of the villages along the Mexican Riviera, Puerto Aventuras offers excellent access to some of the best Mayan ruin sites in the Yucatan. Take a guided tour or explore the ruins on your own.
-Go scuba diving or snorkeling: Scuba diving is a great way to have a personal encounter with the dazzling marine life of the Mexican Coast. No matter what time of year you arrive here, you're likely to see sea turtles and dolphins.
-Play on the beach: Go swimming in the crystal blue waters or relax on the white sand beaches of Puerto Aventuras. If you're up for an adventure, go kite surfing or parasailing.
-Rent a boat: Take a guided sail boat trip and see the jungle and Mayan ruins from the coastline. Rent a sea kayak and explore the coastal ecosystem, or join a charter deep sea fishing excursion.
-Explore the jungle: Take a quiet eco-tour and catch a glimpse of rare species of wildlife, or go repelling and zip-lining through the forest canopy.
-Enjoy the nightlife: Sample the laid-back beachy vibe of Puerto Aventuras compared to the electric energy of Tulum and Cozumel. All along the coast, there are world-class seafood restaurants, fun bars, and live music performances suited to any mood.
Many visitors come to Puerto Aventuras during the spring and summer, but every season is beautiful here, and it's always easy to find the perfect vacation rental no matter what you're looking for. Find a trendy condo in the heart of the downtown or rent a quiet villa with views of the ocean.
