Swimming in a Cenote in Riviera Maya
There are over 2,500 cenotes in the entire Yucatan Peninsula. You won't want to miss the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful naturally-occurring cenotes near Cancun and swim in the refreshingly cool waters of these ancient underground waterways.
One of the many options for cenotes is Río Secreto, a system of Mayan underground caves with breathtaking mineral and rock formations along a flowing river. Cenotes are relaxing and exhilarating - an all in one adventure.
Ancient Mayan Ruins
If you're more of a history buff, or simply love to walk among the towering pyramids and ancient architecture, take a journey to the ruins of Tulum or climb the pyramid at Cobá, where you can watch the sunset from the highest pyramid in the Yucatan. You can also visit Chichen Itza, which is now considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Whichever archeological site you choose, the mystery and lore that embraces these locations will make an enjoyable day in Riviera Maya for you and your wedding party.
