Experiences you can´t miss while on the property…
Explore on a nature adventure
This hour-long tour winds you through Mayakoba’s network of narrow canals on a covered canal boat known as a lancha. Wildlife guides and photographers known as tatichs (from the Mayan word for creator) will point out the diverse range of flora and fauna you’ll spot – roseate spoonbills, boat-billed herons – as you slowly weave your way on the silent electric boat through the eco-resort’s four ecosystems: mangroves, coastal dunes, navigable water canals and the Mesoamerican reef. It’s a wonderfully way to appreciate why the likes of the United Nations World Tourism Organization and the Rainforest Alliance hail the resort as a watermark in sustainable tourism.
Cook up Mexican classics
Get a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine in a cooking class under the guidance of the hotel’s executive chef before taking a tour of the kitchen – it’s suitable for adults and children alike. Learn about the hotel’s sustainable culinary approach, with Caribbean lobster sourced from the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and grouper, snapper and Caribbean reef snapper all drawn from the region. Prepare unique recipes found on the hotel’s menu, inspired by a variety of Mexican, Asian and coastal themes.
Swing by the ocean
Tee off on the El Camaleon course with sublime views of the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean and Cozumel island. Designed by Aussie golfing legend Greg Norman, the 18-hole course features three separate ecosystems – the beach, mangroves, and tropical Mayan jungle. The course provides a host of challenges for players of all handicaps – beware the cenotes (sinkholes), bunkers and freshwater canals – with rolling, rocky holes in the upper area and several greens with tight landing areas.
There are several different ways to explore the 240 acres around Mayakoba. You can hop aboard a lancha boat, grab an electric golf cart or stroll around on foot. But perhaps the best way to see it is on a bike. Pedal your way around the white powdered sandy beach of the Riviera Maya fringed with magnificent sapphire blue waters.
Built-in the 13th century, Tulum was one of the last cities constructed by the Maya to protect the port, and vital trading post and it’s one of the best-preserved today. The ruins are perched on a bluff atop a rugged stretch of coastline, flanked by a glorious white-sand beach and the brilliantly blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. The God of Winds Temple, the Temple of the Frescoes, and the Castillo. Go early to avoid the hordes of tourists.
