Riviera Maya / Cancun - Dreams Jade Resort

Riviera Maya is truly a Caribbean Oasis located on 80 miles of the Yucatan Peninsula with stunningly beautiful fine-powder sand beaches and clear turquoise water. 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 Dreams 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.
