Puerto Venturas is a purpose built resort, covering an area of more than one and a half square miles on the Riviera Maya and is ideal for family holidays
to Mexico. Designed around a beautiful marina, Puerto Aventuras is home to luxury hotels, private villas, apartments and small bed and breakfast establishments.

Fatima Bay is the main resort beach, stretching for nearly 2 miles from Chac Hal to the Grand Peninsula Hotel. The beach is a perfect setting of white powdery sand with clear azure waters and reefs which are perfect for snorkelling. At Chan Yu Yum to the north of the resort there is a small bay which is also great for a spot of snorkelling.
The Cedam Museum in Puerto Aventuras houses items which have been recovered by local divers from wrecks of ships which have sunk on the reefs here.
