outside & on the water

Pedal along on a guided bike sightseeing excursion of the resort’s rainforest nature trails or spend the day learning about how marine biologists are restoring our endangered coral reef, the world’s second largest. Sign up the kids for tennis or archery or an evening kayak under the stars. Go snorkeling or start your day with yoga on the beach. Learn more.
Food & drink
Sign up for a cooking class with one of our knowledgeable chefs. Prepare some of our exclusive recipes and enjoy a private mezcal, tequila or craft beer tasting. Feeling brave? We’ll teach you all about Mexican delicacies made from foraged edible bugs: dried grasshoppers, maguey worms, ant eggs, crayfish and escamoles (chicatana ant larvae). Sip margaritas at a beach fiesta or attend a lively Mexican celebration with traditional foods and mariachi entertainment.
