Discover a natural paradise while you play golf

If you are a golf fanatic, Fairmont Mayakoba is the ideal place to enjoy the luxury offered by the Mexican Caribbean and one of the best golf courses in Mexico and Latin America, El Camaleón. This year, from November 30th to December 6th, the Mayakoba Golf Classic 2020 will be held, a tournament that features the participation of professional golfers from around the world and where Matt Kuchar set a new record for a 54-hole tournament at the Mayakoba Golf Classic with 193 (-20). In addition to enjoying this spectacle, you can explore all the wonders that the Riviera Maya offers.

Designed by legendary Australian golfer Greg Norman and opened in 2006, El Camaleón Golf Course made golf history in 2007 when it became the home of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, the first PGA TOUR event to be played outside of the US and Canada. Like El Camaleón, from which it takes its name, the course offers constantly changing views as it stretches through three diverse ecosystems: the Mayan rain forest, mangrove swamp, and the coast of the Mexican Caribbean Sea. Distinctive hazards like cenotes, sprawling bunkers, and crystal clear freshwater canals are unique features of El Camaleón, certified by Audubon International for its commitment to the environment.

Some important data from the field to consider are:

  • 18 Holes
  • 7,024 Yards
  • Par 72
  • Rating 74.8
  • Slope 139
  • Paspalum Grass

Likewise, El Camaleón has the prestigious Jim McLean Golf School with certified instructors and the highest technology to improve your game so you can impress even the professionals.

And if you still don’t have plans for your free time, here are some recommendations so you can make the most of your stay with the best golf offers.

If you are one of those who prefer to stay near the El Camaleón Golf Club-headquarters of the Mayakoba Golf Classic 2020-, within the complex is Fairmont Mayakoba, AAA-5 Diamonds hotel that has a variety of activities to have fun, relax and connect with the natural wonders of the Caribbean. Participate in a boat tour that will take you through the water canals that meander among the abundant mangroves and meet some of the more than 300 species that inhabit the place.

Are you looking to pamper yourself and forget stress? To fully relax, book one of the massages that the Willow Stream spa offers in its new palapas on the beach. The breeze and the sound of the waves will be the perfect element to live this memorable experience.

If what you like is to be active, enjoy the sea at your own pace and practice on the beach of the hotel stand up paddle, you do not need to be an expert in this activity, all you need is the attitude and desire to experience the tranquility of the water and the beauty of the landscape. In addition, Mayakoba has a new Van Dutch yacht in which you can navigate the waters of the Mexican Caribbean, starting from the Fairmont Mayakoba beach you can go to Cozumel or Playa del Carmen while refreshing yourself with drinks that you can accompany with lunch and snacks. You can also make a stop and snorkel in the coral reefs or just sunbathe while reclining on their couches and beds. You will certainly feel very spoiled.
