Top 5 Reasons You Wish You Were in Riviera Maya, Mexico Right Now

The brand new Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is the all-inclusive resort location of the ultimate country music vacation experience: Tropical Nights presents Boots in the Sand.

But why Riviera Maya, Mexico?

While it shouldn’t take too much convincing for one to see why a place with crystal clear ocean waters and white sandy beaches is the perfect vacation destination, here’s five more reasons to visit Riviera Maya (just in case!):

5. Incredible Food & Drink
Few vacation perk lists would truly be complete without a rundown of what you get to eat and drink. Luckily, Mexico is full of exotic, delicious foods that are a far cry from what you’ve had at Taco Bell.

At the Hard Rock Hotel alone, you can find traditional Mexican fare or — if Mexican food’s not your thing — you can eat Italian, French, Wood stove Pizza, Brazilian, Japanese, or a classic American Steakhouse. I guess what I’m saying is, you won’t go hungry.

4. Unrivaled History
After you’ve loaded up on carbs and you’re full of energy, it’s time to explore Mexico’s rich history! It’s nearly too easy to take a day trip to see ancient Mayan ruins.

A country music concert in paradise and an educational trip through ancient civilizations? Now you’re just overachieving.

3. Adventurous Activities 
Look, chances are good that wherever you live, you go on very few adventures. Riviera Maya is the perfect place to break free of monotony and try something new!

Off-site, you can try an excursions like zip-lining, scuba diving, and deep sea fishing. Or, if those sound a little too adventurous, there’s a world class golf course on the grounds.

2. Luxurious Accommodations
Everybody dreams about living like a rock star. At the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, it is totally possible. Between beachfront lounging, fitness centers, water slides, tennis courts, kayaks, a climbing wall — I actually need to stop listing things before I get exhausted. It’s THAT extensive. Depending on the room you book, you could also have a private Jacuzzi, private rooftop Sky Terrace, or even a room with a Stage View from your private balcony.

1. Boots In The Sand!
Ok, by now I imagine you’re saying “I get it. The Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico sounds amazing.” You’re right – but in the immortal words of the late Billy Mays – Wait! There’s more: February 23rd – February 27th is Boots in the Sand, the most idyllic country music vacation experience ever. If that sounds like a strong statement, don’t worry, I have facts to back it up.

Not only will concert goers get to see Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert, Billy Currington, and Jana Kramer perform, but Boots in the Sand gives country music fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hang out with some of country music’s hottest stars! That is crazy awesome.
