    Marie Claire’s beauty team touches down in the Mayan Riviera

    We stayed at…

    The Viceroy Riviera Maya (viceroyhotelsandresorts.com), a serene, adults-only beach resort with a jungle vibe. All 41 thatched-roof villas come with a plunge pool and a terrace garden with a handmade hammock perfect for that afternoon chill out. Add in two restaurants, a spa, yoga classes and super-attentive staff and you have a very private sunshine hideaway. Luxury villas cost from £337 or book a package at scottdunn.com.

    Let’s do it…

    British Airways (ba.com) flies direct from London Gatwick to Cancún, from £640 return in June including taxes. Moon Spotlight Tulum (£8.99; Avalon) is a handy guide or check out rivieramaya.com.

    Logging on: enjoy a Mayan spa ritual

    Our top five things to do…

    * Don’t miss the colossal Mayan ruins at Chichén Itzá (chichenitza.com).

    * Splash around in a water park such as Xcaret (xcaret.com) or Xel-Há (xelha.com).

    * Feast on fresh, sustainable local produce at Hartwood Tulum (hartwoodtulum.com).

    * Feeling broody? Take a soak in the traditional Mayan fertility baths at the Viceroy’s spa.

    * For a mad night out, head to Coco Bongo (cocobongo.com.mx)
