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.
