This is the vacation I wanted to stay home. This is the thing I said wasn’t for me. This is the girl I was not supposed to meet. This is the life I would be missing.
Once an important site of worship for the Mayas, Tulum still keeps some of its splendor, and the beauty of its temples by the blue sea will dazzle you. All along the wonderful coastline of the Mayan Riviera, places like Milamores Beach will make you feel as if there is no other place to go —white sand and an unbeatable landscape where you can either ski on water or just relax until sunset comes and wait for an excelent dinner under the stars. Then take the road to the Cenote Dos Ojos and plunge into its magical waters guided by a professional diver. You may want to stay there forever.

This is one of the best examples of the praised Mayan architecture.

The Mayan Riviera is all spectacular beaches and amazing views of the Caribbean Sea. In Milamores you can find all kinds of activities, from water–skiing, snorkeling or skydiving to yoga or massages if you are feeling more like relaxing.
