A popular luxury vacation destination, Riviera Maya offers travelers both a Caribbean beach paradise and colorful history.

Originally the Cancun-Tulum corridor, the name Riviera Maya was adopted in 1999 to reflect the area’s Mayan legacy. It extends from Playa del Carmen in the north to Tulum in the south, and some 40 km inland to border with Yucatan.

The Mayans began settling the area nearly 3,000 years ago. Extremely advanced in the areas of engineering, mathematics, astronomy, and writing, the legacy left behind by the Mayans has created one of the greatest tourist attractions of Central America, including such archaeologically significant achievements as Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum.

In the 1500s, the Spanish began to conquer parts of the Caribbean. Taking over the area in a little over a year, it took nearly 20 years for the Maya to surrender to Spanish conquistadors.

Mexico’s 1821 independence from Spain did not turn out to be a boon for Mayan inhabitants. Ancestral claims to land were disregarded, and many Maya became slaves to new land owners. In 1847 a rebellion was attempted, but the Mexican army drove the Maya out, and after several years they surrendered.

Today’s Mayans have greatly benefited not only from 1930s land reform and aid, but from the development of Cancun and today’s tourism industry, from which many make a living.

From high-end boutiques to open-air roadside markets, Riviera Maya offers an assortment in retail therapy and souvenirs. However selecting the perfect gift can be tough, so what are you best options for putting a smile on Grandma’s face?

  • Cultured Granny?
    Among the many great achievements of the Mayan culture is pottery, so why not pick Granny up a pot, plate, vase, or home décor item bearing ancient glyphs and artwork from Chichen Itza or Tulum?
  • Fashionista Granny?
    Pick up a brightly colored embroidered blanket, shawl, blouse, or handbag from Riviera Maya’s Fifth Avenue. Looking for something with a little more flash? Opt for silver or semi-precious stone jewelry.
  • Chocoholic Granny?
    Visit Ah Cacao for Mexican chocolates, cocoa powder, chocolate shampoo, and more. (Just don’t partake of Granny’s souvenir before returning.)
  • Wild Granny?
    Grab her a bottle of top-shelf tequila made from 100 percent agave, or for something unusual, a bottle of Xtabentún, authentic Maya liquor made with honey. There are hundreds of kinds of tequila, so be sure to sample to ensure Granny gets the very best!
  • Thrifty Granny?
    If all else fails, you can always impress Granny by boosting a few L’Occitane or Farouk toiletries from your all-inclusive, Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya guest room.
