Your Guide to Historic Hotels in Riviera Maya

Visiting new cities can be more than just getting a break from your daily routine, it can also be about understanding the history and culture of a place. One of the best ways to get a sense of the culture of a city is to learn about its past. Touring the region's museums or landmarks is a great start, but staying in a Riviera Maya historic hotel can ferry you back to the past. Get ready to pack your suitcases (and no need for the time machine) as your Riviera Maya famous hotel awaits.

Grab Your Place in History

Many of the traditional hotels give you a feel for a bygone period right from the start. With unique architectures and locations in the center of Riviera Maya, it will become apparent what makes Riviera Maya bucket-list worthy. Fortunately, you won't have to actually live in the past. While these hotels are historic, they have most up-to-date amenities to help you wind down during your getaway. You will find your room outfitted with a comfortable bed and just about everything else you'll want for a marvellous visit.

After you have checked-in and had time to look around your hotel, you can check out the art museums and well-known landmarks to absorb more of the region's culture. Undoubtedly, all this hopping through history will work up an appetite. Go through our 3330 guest reviews for suggestions from like-minded travellers to help make your Riviera Maya visit that much better. You can also ask your hotels' front desk staff to point to where some of the area's favourite spots to enjoy a cocktail or dinner in Riviera Maya are.

Your Riviera Maya Hotel Is Waiting

Riviera Maya has 9625 vintage hotels that exude the look and feel of another era. Some of these famous lodgings are where distinguished world leaders stayed. You're sure to land a hotel possessing all the in-room amenities and the qualities you wish for.
