When the blue-green waters of the Mayan Riviera beckon, flights to Cancun take you to pristine white beaches where your cares will melt away. Maroma, a privately owned beach, is located in the Mexican State of Quintana Roo along the southeastern coast of the Caribbean Sea. Checking into hotel rooms near Maroma will soon have you sipping pina coladas in the sand under colorful umbrellas.
Cheap hotels close to Maroma Beach are located along highway 307 and the beach. There are no hotels on the actual beach since the land between the highway and the beach used to be mainly jungle—the only access was from the sea. This makes Punta Maroma a pristine environment and it's voted among the top 10 beaches in the world. You can gain access to the beach by one of the private resort entrances for a breathtaking experience.
Exploring Quintana Roo
Hotels by Maroma are typically in Playa del Carmen, and there is more to do here than you can imagine. Take the whole family swimming with dolphins; tour ancient Mayan ruins; or enjoy coral reefs, a butterfly garden, or aviary. Go zip-lining in the jungle or shop along Fifth Avenue for local arts and crafts. Take a 45-minute ferry across the sea to Cozumel Island and visit Chankanaab National Park to see different varieties of tropical fish. In the main neighborhood of San Miguel, you can find live music and black bean soup with fish tacos to fill your stomach. Burn off any vacation calories by heading north to Cancun, where you can dance the night away in a swanky resort nightclub or a beach cabana.
When considering Maroma vacation packages, remember that you can save up to $537 when you book a hotel and flight at the same time through Travelocity. Relax on the beach and enjoy your Mayan Riviera getaway!
