Quintana Roo Vacations

Quintana Roo is a state in Mexico that stretches along the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and faces the Caribbean Sea. Up until the 1970 most of the towns were sleepy fishing villages. But in the 1970’s the Mexican government decided that the region would be perfect for being developed into a high end tourist beach region. And the Riviera Maya was born. Now the coast is dotted with high end resorts and luxury beachfront hotels in the famous beach towns of Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel. One of the main tourist draws to this section of the Caribbean Sea is the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System which extends north along the Quintana Roo coast from Belize. Sitting in the middle of the reef is the island of Cozumel. And in 1961 Jacques Cousteau introduced Cozumel to the world as an amazing dive site and home of the Palancar Coral reefs. And Cozumel has never looked back. However, before the arrival of the tourists, Quintana Roo was also the home to the Mayan people. Probably one of the most dramatic Mayan Temples still standing is the Temple found in Tulum. The Mayan ruins are set on 39 foot tall cliffs facing the Caribbean Sea. There are also numerous cenotes surrounding the temple.
