To relax or to explore? why not both!

The Mexican Caribbean is more than a beach destination, more than all-inclusive luxury hotel accommodations, way more than just beach and sun; which is great, but don’t you think you can find that in many other Caribbean places?

All Inclusive LuxurySo what makes different this area? Well let’s say that the Mexican Caribbean is the perfect mix between gorgeous white sandy beaches and a millenary cultural site.

Yes, when visiting us, you won’t only have the chance to relax and chill out while sun tanning overlooking the stunning Caribbean Sea, but also, you will get the chance to discover the mystic Mayan civilization, and the colorful and cheerful Mexican culture.

So.. what is to do when visiting Cancun?!
Let’s start with the Mayan Heritage.

Mexico was the most populated Mayan area so you can tell there are ancient cities to visit. Travel to the past and learn how the Mayans used to live. Get surprised by their mathematics and astronomic knowledge and their relation with nature.
The Most popular Mayan ruins are:

  • Chichen Itza, who’s main castle was recently named as ‘One of the New Wonders of the World’.
  • Tulum, Mayan city facing the dazzling turquoise Caribbean Sea. Was an important trade port.
  • Coba, the main temple is one of the few huge pyramids which can still be climbed. With an estimated 6,000 structures, few are actually restored or excavated giving your visit a unique feel of discovery and wonder not found at other Mayan Ruins. Just like an Indiana Jones film!

Another unique attractive of the area are the Cenotes. They are a natural pit, or sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath.

Cenotes are located along the Mayan peninsula and were the only sources of potable water to the Mayans.
For the Mayans world view they were also consider portals to other dimensions. Therefore they were sacred.
Some of them are open and look like small lakes surrounded by lush vegetation, but long time ago they were like swimming pools under caverns, however since the surface of the peninsula is very porous, the ceiling eventually fell down. In fact, there are still many other Cenotes that still kept their roof.

When visiting us, something you definitely can’t miss is the opportunity to Snorkel or Dive the second largest coral reef in the world. It spans 450 miles, starts in ‘Cabo Catoche’, north of Quintana Roo, and borders the coast of Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. Simply stunning!

xcaret For those willing to have a family experience but still get to know our local flora and fauna we recommend you visiting the Ecological Park of Xcaret. It is an expansive park but worth seeing every corner of it (Panthers, Deers, butterfly nursery, etc.). As a hint, we recommend you to don’t miss the final night show.

Golf, yes golf! What could be of more assistance for concentration than having the beautiful sea in the background? The area offers many golfing options, with different sizes and prices. Without a doubt our golf lovers will find something that suits their preferences.

The Playa Mujeres Golf course was designed by Greg Norman.
