The Riviera Maya is world renowned for snorkeling and scuba diving. The coral reef system just off the coast offers some of the most colorful variety of marine life. As one of the top ecotourism destinations, the Riviera Maya remains undeveloped in many restricted areas. You will find mostly charming fishing villages that dot this area along with some ancient Mayan ruins. The Now Jade Riviera Cancun is close to Puerto Morelos and only 12 miles south of Cancun airport. This all inclusive resort offers luxury comfort combined with local hospitality.

To avoid this issue, we recommend following some practical steps: Make two copies of your passport ID page – that’s the page with your picture, your date of birth, etc. This can be an image scan or hard copy. Give one copy to someone you trust – a friend, family member, or assistant – in case you need to contact them while on your trip. Keep the other copy with you. If it’s printed, put it in your carry-on (not your checked luggage – that could go missing). If it’s an electronic copy, make sure you have access to it when you leave the U.S. (on your mobile device, or in your e-mail, for example).
