Who We Are
We are two young adults from California and New York. We fell in love with the Riviera Maya and decided to make the move together. Living together in Playa del Carmen, we check out all of the surrounding areas and offerings, giving you a true and honest opinion of what we find. We love being outdoors, both work remotely while living in Mexico, and like to travel across Mexico and Latin America.
What We Do
We do our best to check out everything we can in the Riviera Maya and around Mexico. We visit the best restaurants, walk around town, and check out the spots so you don’t have to! When we find something we like, we share it! Our intention is to find the gems offered in the area, and make sure you know what to do when you get here on vacation! We write about places we love, our favorite restaurants, hotels, pools, and more.
Why We Do It
Most simply, we love the Riviera Maya. Spending time in the area has allowed us to deeply care for this region of Mexico. As we have spent a lot of time here, we want to offer our tips and suggestions to help you find the ideal vacation and visit. We’ve all had the experience of staying at the wrong hotel, eating at the wrong restaurant, or going to the wrong place for our vacations. Our goal is to help you find the best possible experience while visiting the Riviera Maya and Yucatán. If you have any questions, we are here to support you and your trip!
We do make some money from TheRivieraMaya.org in order to support the website, and don’t want to hide how we do so. First, you may notice advertisements from third-parties that are served through Google AdSense. We do not have control over these ads; we simply provide the space and Google fills them with advertisers from their AdWords network.
We also utilize affiliate marketing. When you click some of the links on our site, we make a small commission. However, our first priority is to provide a safe and enjoyable experience of this beautiful part of the world. We only with organizations and individuals we truly believe in. We do not accept paid advertisements or mentions of specific tours or hotels ever, and only post what we want!
We both have been writing online for years, with our pieces published across the Internet. Whether we’re writing about self-care, traveling, or relationships, writing is something we both take very seriously.
