Things to See and Do While Staying at Riviera Maya Suites

Though you probably won't find many recreational possibilities on-site at Riviera Maya Suites, that certainly doesn't mean you won't encounter other intriguing things to do and see during your time in Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean.

Riviera Maya Suites has one swimming pool, so during your spare time it provides a convenient opportunity to take a casual swim, or perhaps raise your heart rate with a few laps. In fact, even when staying at a property with a pool, most travelers are so attracted to Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean's beaches that they make little use of the pool during their visit. The closest beach to the property is El Faro, which is a half mile away.

At Riviera Maya Suites, you can maintain your fitness routine, even while dining on Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean's irresitable cuisine; be sure to ask the staff how to access the workout facility available on-site.


Despite the fact that Riviera Maya Suites doesn't have a golf course, you could try to arrange a tee time nearby. Courses nearby include Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club, Playacar Golf Course, and El Camaleon Mayakoba. All of them are within 11 miles and the closest of the group, Playacar Golf Course, is just a small trip off from the property, so it won't be a bother to make stopping by for a few rounds of golf. This course has 18 holes total. This par 72 course has a total length of 6269 yards. For those who would like to find out more information, you can call the course at 811-52-987-306-24.
