The area is ideal for sun worshippers and nocturnal party animals, so it's no surprise celebrities like Leo DiCaprio, Kate Moss, Simon Cowell, Naomi Campbell, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bono have all been spotted in the region.
Playa del Carmen is considered the hub of the area, also known as the Mayan Riviera. It's famous for its beautiful beaches (think Caribbean crystal seas and bright white sands), relaxed atmosphere and sophisticated hotel accommodation that preps the body for some serious partying when the sun goes down.
If you are looking for a romantic and very private hideaway near Playa del Carmen, Coqui Coqui Tulum Hotel (doubles from £126) is an ideal choice. The Mayan themed hotel is made from natural stone and timber, with giant four poster beds and incredible views of the ocean. There's also a restaurant, a designer boutique, a spa and real Mayan ruins nearby to keep you entertained.
When he's in Playa del Carmen, Leo is said to stay at the Rosewood Mayakoba Hotel (doubles from £300), which is right next door to an expertly designed golf course. The large resort also has a restaurant, fitness centre and a spa, but first you'll have to tear yourself away from the private plunge pool in your room!
The majority of flights into the Yucatan Peninsula arrive at Aeropuerto International de Cancún, and virtually all flights from the UK will pass through the USA or Mexico City. Flights with British Airways to Mexico City start from £800 return.
