When it comes to dream vacations in Mexico, you'll agree that this destination has a lot to offer…
From party hotspots like Cancun and Cozumel, to cities that are rich in culture and spectacular gastronomy like Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende, we are not surprised by the fact that for years Mexico has been the favourite vacation spot for many people from all over the world. With almost 500 beautiful beaches to choose from, you can plan your dream trip here, with plenty of places to visit and things to do.
However, if that exploration is perhaps too much for you and all you long for is a beach vacation, we suggest you visit the Mayakoba region of Mexico, located just off the Caribbean coast of the Riviera Maya, just half an hour from CUN International Airport. Mayakoba is an alluring locale tucked away south of Cancun, containing protected stretches of tropical beauty – lagoons, jungles and beaches galore. With this ideal location, when you arrive, you'll think you've stepped into a paradise of rest and relaxation, and due to the fact that you're only half an hour north of Playa del Carmen, you'll also have the opportunity to explore the Mayan ruins.
The Mayakoba enclave is synonymous with luxury in the travel industry, but is also known for its ethos of sustainability, as well as the finest offerings when it comes to nature, culture and gastronomy. Mayakoba will enchant you with its beautiful tropical rainforests and crystal-clear waters flowing through the canals, as well as its beautiful gardens and the finest Mexican food that you can enjoy in the many restaurants of this region.
This community got its start in the mid-2000s, and today, it features four hotels and residences, as well as a Greg Norman signature golf course. Once you step through the gates of Mayakoba, the rest of the world will figuratively melt away, along with all the problems it brings, such as traffic jams, as golf carts, bicycles and boats are the most popular means of transportation here. Each hotel has its own resort-style footprint, with numerous pools and restaurants scattered around. A lagoon winds its way through this space connecting the four hotel zones, while many of the rooms are connected by waterways, populated by a variety of birds, turtles and other wildlife. From Mayakoba Beach you can enjoy the view of the island of Cozumel, while the second largest coral reef in the world is close by, which is why, as you can imagine, this is a popular location among diving enthusiasts.
Mayakoba's most luxurious hotel is certainly the Rosewood Mayakoba, which is a real oasis of peace and beauty, known for its incredible natural gorgeousness and impeccable service. Nestled within a verdant lagoon, jungle vegetation and pristine white sandy beach, Rosewood Mayakoba is your ticket to a kind of private world of exclusive beauty. This hotel perfectly defines luxury chic, while no detail is left to the imagination.
