Mexico- East Coast Yacht Charter Guide

Mexico’s East Coast is an eclectic assortment of charter magic, from steamy jungles and sparkling cenotes to luxurious coastal resorts and exciting restaurants.

A luxury yacht charter to Mexico’s East Coast promises bright, beautiful and bustling landscapes chock full of excitement for the most discerning travelers. This destination bridges the gap between ancient archeological ruins and high-end resorts and pristine beaches.

As you embark on your journey to Mexico’s East Coast, you can start envisioning the crystal-clear waters, flavorful fare and colorful streets that wind through these culturally-rich towns. The Yucatan Peninsula is sheltered by the Gulf of Mexico and encompasses a similar climate to the Caribbean, scattered with secluded coves and bays, white sand beaches and lush greenery.

Cancun offers indigo waters against white sand beaches and unrivaled nightlight hotspots located on the edge of Quintana Roo. You can explore Cancun’s excellent diving locations like MUSA, the Underwater Museum of Art, which is home to extraordinary coral sculptures and many colorful species of marine life.

After a day spent on the lively shores of Cancun, travel to the laid-back Playa del Carmen. Teeming with white sand beaches and turquoise waters, this pocket of paradise has quickly moved up the ranks to one of the most popular destinations in Mexico. Stroll along the pedestrian walkway of 5th avenue lined with shops, restaurants and lots of color. Right off the coast, you can explore the Mesoamerican Reef, which contains the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, stretching almost 700 miles from the Yucatan Peninsula through the Honduran Bay Islands. This one-of-a-kind excursion is a must-do while on your luxury yacht charter.

Mexico’s East Coast is home to Tulum, a town known for its high-end restaurants and upscale nightclubs while simultaneously boasting gorgeous lagoons and cenotes. The picturesque beaches and well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city come together to make Tulum a truly unique destination. You can dive at Cenotes Dos Ojos (Two Eyes Cenote), one of the most extravagant diving sites in the Yucatan Peninsula. If you’re more interested in a quintessential day lounging on the white powder sand with your toes in the water, head to Tulum Beach. This stunning and seemingly perfect stretch of paradise welcomes you to take a dip in the water, sunbathe on the sand and shop the local boutiques that line the drag. For a more rugged atmosphere, head to Mayan Beach, a unique beach that showcases Mayan ruins against the crispy white sand and crystal-clear waters, along with a beach club that serves fantastic cocktails. Take a night off from dinner on your charter yacht and enjoy a meal at Macario. Past diners rave about the high-energy atmosphere, delectable meals and great vibes. The décor and ambiance are impeccable, with outstanding staff and even better Mexican cuisine.

Thrill-seekers will appreciate the many Riviera Maya cenotes adorned with intricately-shaped stalactites and stalagmites. They mirror cathedrals with their delicate ins and outs, the crystal spires growing alongside each other, forming impressive shapes that make your diving experience that much more exhilarating.

North of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is the quaint island of Isla Holbox. Rich in marine life like turtles and whale sharks, Isla Holbox is the perfect addition to your East Mexico yacht charter. This stunning locale is the ideal combination of relaxation, natural beauty and fantastic weather. For those that find beauty in large murals with vibrant colors that seem to jump off the wall, Isla Holbox will not disappoint. You can roam the quiet streets and take yourself on a mural tour to marvel at the beautiful artwork. Playa Holbox beach is the best beach on the island and some say the best in Mexico itself. The unreal beauty and untouched charm delight every visitor that sets foot on the white powder sand.
