Riviera Maya News provides top Cancun and Riviera Maya Mexico news headlines in English with daily features focused on Cancun and Riviera Maya. We cover regions from Holbox and Isla Contoy in the north, to Mahahual (Costa Maya) and the state’s capital city of Chetumal in the south.

Riviera Maya News is headed by Renay N, a professional journalist who has written for numerous online magazines including Lifescript (now Everyday Health), Vida Vibrante, Daily Glow, Vista Magazine, Impre Media and Voxxi News.

After digital publications, she spent six years providing professional brand marketing content to private clients before returning to journalism where she became copy editor then managing editor for several print newspapers in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. She has also done work for IN Media Group and Stewart Title Co. and volunteer writing / editing work for Consejo de Promoción Turistica de Quintana Roo.

As a longtime permanent resident of Mexico, she was interviewed by AOL in 2011 to provide insight on the misgivings of safety in Mexico. It was then she realized the need for a concrete, real-time professional headline news system aimed at the English-speaking community. A system that offered readers unbiased, factual content about Mexico and in particular, Cancun and Riviera Maya.

Riviera Maya News strives to provide readers with the most accurate, up-to-date information for the region. Our hardworking staff do their best to translate and/or interpret Spanish information into English as well as keep quotes as precise and exact to its original wording as possible.

Due to linguistic and cultural differences in expressions, you may sometimes find the wording in a quote does not sound “as it should”. This is not in error. It is the writer’s attempt to keep a local quote as accurate and true as possible, providing readers with original idioms.

Mexico is known as one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists. It is for this reason we do not publish writer details. If you wish to get in touch, please do so via email (below) or visit our contact page.
