Riviera Maya tops list as most expensive for five-star accommodations

Posted By on October 20, 2015

Choosing a hotel is as important as choosing the method of transportation and is something travelers are willing to spend good money for. A great hotel in a great destination usually means a great holiday, but is not something that comes inexpensively these days.


A new study by Hoteles.com shows that visitors who stay in Mexico’s Riviera Maya pay the most for hotels out of any other destination in the country. Their study showed that the area of Xpu-Ha toward the bottom of the Riviera MRiviera_Maya_Xpu Haaya is, on average, the most costly for five-star hotel rooms.

They say that on average, tourists staying in that part of the Riviera Maya pay 4,627 peso per room per night, making it the most expensive in Mexico. Other figures show that Los Cabos, who has seen their tourist market increase 2.0 percent over last year, charges 3,276 peso per night while a five-star hotel room in Puerto Peñasco, in the northwest Mexican state of Sonora, runs 2,578 peso per night. On average, a room in the Riviera Maya costs about 3,203 peso per night.
