In addition to our organized scenic flights and charters, we can also create additional journeys to other destinations including Ek Balam, Merida, Campeche, the Mayan ruins of Calakmul, and the Costa Maya (Mahahual, Bacalar), among others.

Normally this is where we’d say the sky’s the limit, but as you can see that’s definitely no the case for us.

Chichen Itza is a must-see attraction for many visitors to the Riviera Maya and the Yucatan Peninsula.

The second most visited archaeological site in Mexico just behind the world-famous Teotihuacan just outside Mexico City, Chichen Itza offers a spectacular introduction into the fascinating and enigmatic world of the ancient Maya.

For some, however, the downside to visiting this Seven New Wonder of the World has to do with the large crowds and afternoon heat that can at times seem unbearable after a certain time of the day.

That’s why our Fly Playa tours to Chichen Itza leave early in the morning so that you can get there before the throngs of tourists brought in by bus while also having a chance to beat the mid-day heat.

Tour types: Scenic flights, guided tours, charters, aerial photography

Depending on the type of tour you choose, you can either do a 45-minute scenic aerial tour of the island or combine it with a few hours discovering the magic of the island on your own or on a guided V.I.P. tour.

Fly Playa allows you to visit the island from land, air, and if you wish, sea, all in a day’s adventure.

The Riviera Maya encompasses so many stunning destinations that it seems almost unfair to lump them all into one.

Stretching from Puerto Morelos to the north down to Punta Allen in the Sian Kaan Biosphere to the south, the Riviera Maya is home to such world-famous destinations as Maroma, which boasts some of the best beaches in the entire region, Playa del Carmen, our home, as well as Puerto Aventuras, Solomon Bay, and of course, Tulum.

Because it would otherwise be almost impossible to get so many breathtaking views in just one day on the road, Fly Playa offers a scenic aerial tour that takes you over the Riviera Maya’s most iconic locations.

Tour options: Scenic flights, aerial photography


The Sian Ka’an Biosphere located just south of Cancun is a wide extension of coastline, sweeping wetlands, freshwater lagoons,  extensive mangrove swamps, palm savannah, and barrier reefs.

The views of Sian Ka’an seem otherworldly, and present a wonderful view of one of the most pristine regions in the entire peninsula.

From Playa del Carmen to Sian Ka’an it´s just a short 30-minute flight before you are able to take in a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of beautiful colors and textures.
