The Riviera Maya is made up of more than 130 km of paradise beaches and 5* resorts. The stunning natural beauty of the area and the welcoming Mexican culture have made it a hit with tourists, turning this patch of Caribbean coastline into one of the most popular and versatile travel destinations in the world, and the most popular destination in Mexico. Each town in the Riviera Maya has it’s own distinct personality, so there’s a perfect spot in paradise to suit your group’s needs.

Villa rentals are a fantastic option for traveling in large groups as they offer all the luxury of a resort, without having to share. If there’s any time you’re allowed to be selfish, it’s when you’re on vacation!

Private beach access, pristine pools, boundless entertainment and even a full-time staff are all commonly offered with a villa rental in the Riviera Maya. Moreover, many luxury villas are equipped to host events – destination weddings, retreats and special occasions for large parties can all be made possible with the right space. Expansive gardens and large palapas overlooking the crystal clear sea can play host to sunrise yoga sessions and wellness retreats, or perhaps a destination wedding on the beach. Games rooms and entertainment create a fun atmosphere for corporate team building retreats. With the right rental villa, the possibilities are endless for you and your group.
