Kayaking in Cozumel


Cozumel has a select group of beaches that are ideal for kayaking. To do this activity, it is advisable to rent the necessary equipment directly from the companies that offer kayaking rental services.

Playa San Francisco. Located in the southern coast town of San Miguel. It is one of the most visited beaches and an ideal spot for kayaking, as its calm waters invite you to enjoy the natural surroundings as you kayak in the open sea.

Playa de San Juan. Located in Cozumel’s hotel zone. At this beach you can do a pleasant kayaking outing thanks to its shallow waters and gentle waves.

Reserva Ecologica Parque Punta Sur. Located on the island’s southern coast, 30 km from the town of San Miguel. It has virgin beaches and wonderful jungle landscape, such as mangroves, marshes and dunes. This ecological reserve has a lagoon surrounded by lush vegetation and it offers great kayaking conditions due to its calm waters.

Riviera Maya, the Top Destination in Mexico


The Riviera Maya stretches 81 gorgeous coastal miles from Puerto Morelos, 11 miles south of Cancun International Airport, to Tulum, the dazzling Mayan archaeological site by the sea. The region has been named a “Top Destination in Mexico” for the past four consecutive years by Travel Weekly; one of the hottest beach destinations by Orbitz in 2008; and was featured as “The Next Riviera” in a Travel & Leisure story.

Its mix of ultimate resorts carved out of mangrove-lined lagoons, simple beach side bungalows and elegant boutique hotels, plus all-inclusive to top any in the Caribbean, caters to every type of traveler. Its remarkable gifts of nature draw beachcombers, divers, paddlers, trekkers and other ecotravelers to explore the region’s network of more than 100 cenotes fed by underground rivers, fishing villages, archaeological sites like Coba and Tulum, and Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s first Biosphere Reserve with 1.5 million pristine acres.  A rich calendar of cultural events uses the unique features of such a landscape.

Riviera Maya destinations include quiet seaside villages like Akumal and Puerto Aventura, and master-planned resorts like Mayakoba. Here five luxurious properties, designed around a series of waterways, include the 401-room Fairmont Mayakoba, which opened in 2006, and the 128-room Rosewood Mayakoba.

Cancun – Mexico’s premier beach destination for meetings, groups and conventions


 “Some still see us as a leisure destination, yet our infrastructure is ideally suited to meetings and conventions of all size,” says Daniela Martinez, groups and conventions manager for the Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau.

In September, the World Travel Awards North & Central America awarded a prize to the Cancun Center, Conventions & Exhibitions, naming it the best convention center in Mexico and Central America. The prestigious awards have been called “the Oscars of the Travel Industry” by The Wall Street Journal.

The 154,000-square-foot Cancun Center in the heart of the hotel zone can accommodate 8,000 simultaneous attendees; its 13 meeting rooms can be divided into 37 breakout rooms, yielding 75,350 sq. ft. of meeting space. In addition, the center offers 78,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space, spanning two levels.

To recognize the importance of meeting and convention travelers, who bring in more than 51-million U.S. dollars to the destination each year, the CVB has extended its popular discount card for another year. The average visitor to Cancun with a group or convention stays four days and three nights and spends $1,250 per person, or 30 percent more than the average individual visitor. The cards provide significant savings at more than 140 participating restaurants, jewelry stores and other retailers, golf courses and other travel-related companies within Cancun and nearby Puerto Morelos.
