The lively Riu Caribe is a stunning 9-story, all-inclusive beachfront resort located near Cancun's famous shopping and nightlife. The resort caters to families and couples, and everyone will delight in an astounding array of age-appropriate activities and entertainment options. Three pools surrounded by lush tropical grounds and a long, beautiful stretch of powdery white-sand beach beckon guests by day. In addition to a host of included water sports, the resort features a full-service health and beauty spa, a fitness center, 24-hour food and beverage service, a supervised RiuLand children's club and theme parties and shows every night.

Located in Cancun's world famous Hotel Zone, just 1.9 miles from great shopping, 2.5 miles from downtown Cancun and 13 miles from the airport. Local artisans, including a cigar roller, occasionally set up tables in the four-story-atrium lobby so guests can browse and shop without leaving the resort. Also in the lobby are gardens, a parakeet cage, a game area and an expansive lounge. A shop off the lobby sells gifts, clothing, snacks and sundries. The powdery white beach is only steps away from the lively pool area. The resort's ideal location provides relatively calm waters, perfect for trying out water sports of all kinds. In addition to the included water sports, parasailing, jet skiing and banana boat rides are offered at the independently operated dive shop right on the resort's beach for an additional charge.

A full-service spa and fitness center features treatment rooms, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. Plus two lighted tennis courts, table tennis, beach volleyball, introductory scuba diving lessons, snorkeling equipment and non-motorized water sports equipment including windsurfers, sailboats, kayaks and body boards are included for all guests.
