New travel trends come out every year. And amongst the 2023 trends, such as price-driven travel, set-jetting, and solo trips, one of the latest this year is what’s called ‘Bleisure’ travel. Mixing a business getaway with some extra vacation time, the Bleisure travel trend doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Here’s why the Riviera Maya is the perfect place to take that Bleisure trip, where you can mix work and lots of rejuvenating experiences.

Day Trips Like No Other In The Riviera Maya

Stay at any hotel near Cancun, and you’ll find no shortage of options for day trips. Whether you want to rent a catamaran and explore Isla Mujeres, head to explore Cozumel for the day, or go diving or snorkeling in the Caribbean, it seems like there are endless opportunities to take the afternoon off from the computer and enjoy the sunshine and nature of the Riviera Maya.

And taking these excursions doesn’t mean you’ll have to rough it. You can customize your tour so that you’ll get private, air-conditioned transportation, a professional tour guide, and anything else you might need so that you’ll return to your hotel rejuvenated and business-ready.

The Riviera Maya Is Very Traveler Accessible

It’s never been easier for North Americans to fly to the Riviera Maya. Cancun International Airport is the gateway to the region, and there are so many direct flight options from cities across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Once in Cancun, you can head to Riviera Maya destinations like Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Bacalar, and beyond. And because the flight is typically less than 4 hours nonstop, it’s pretty hard not to say yes to a little Bleisure getaway to Cancun.

Amazing All-Inclusives

From Cancun to Playa del Carmen and even further south in the Riviera Maya, the Mexican Caribbean has great beachside resorts and hotels with all-inclusive options so that Bleisure travelers can easily mix work and play. And if you’re really looking to live it up on your Bleisure trip, you can splurge on an ultra-luxurious all-inclusive resort. If that’s not in your budget, you can still find amazing accommodation with great value.

The best part is that some of these resorts typically have weekly deals for travelers, so why not turn a few days’ trip into a week or two or maybe a month? Most hotels and resorts in the Riviera Maya have decent WiFi, so you can get your screen time in when you’re not adventuring and sunning the day away. If you’re looking to host a meeting or conference during your vacation, check out a resort with a swanky business center to impress your guests.

Destinations For Any Type Of Traveler

From big beachside cities to off-the-grid coastal towns, you can take your pick in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. One great thing about this part of the world is that it pretty much fits any and all travelers. This destination is a top choice for sunbathers and other all-inclusive, resort-only travelers, but there’s also a place for those looking for something a little different and wanting to travel off the beaten path.

And even in smaller Riviera Maya destinations like Puerto Morelos, Isla Holbox, and Bacalar, you can still find comfortable accommodation (with WiFi), amazing food, and lots of reasons to turn your business getaway into a Bleisure trip that you’ll never forget.
