Playa Paraiso beach on the Riviera Maya is located north of Playa del Carmen. It is noted for having the most beautiful tropical scenery of the region, and being very suitable for land and water sports. The 5 kilometers of this beach has few buildings and balances jungle landscape with comfort for visitors; the jungle scenery is awe-inspiring and, like the Playa Paraiso beach, often called "heavenly," impacting visitor after visitor. There are a few upscale hotels and rustic-style cabins, maintaining harmony with the landscape of the Caribbean. The beach is also home to the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club, designed by architect P.B. Dye.
