While most head to Cancún to loll on the beach and sip cocktails, those looking for green destinations will actually find some terrific eco-friendly places to visit on the Mayan Riviera. This stretch of the Mexican coast on the Caribbean Sea has more to it than the Hotel Zone, beaches, resorts and nightclubs, and the weather is great too. The eco-friendly places to visit on the Mayan Riviera are spectacular and awash with history and wonder.
This is a very famous archaeological site that is sometimes seen in movies and in video games. Most often you see Kukulcan’s Pyramid, a stepped pyramid that is 79 feet tall and has 365 steps (one for each day of the year). It is one of the best and most famous places to visit on the Mayan Riviera as well as being one of the most well known attractions of Mexico. You can no longer climb the pyramid but stick around for the evening light show.
