Headed to Mexico? Although there are many popular vacation destinations dotted around Mexico, frequent travelers may want to try somewhere off the beaten path. This is especially true for avid golfers. A short, forty-minute drive south of Cancun, one can find a truly tropical golf resort. So special in fact, that it’s the home of the only PGA tour stop in all of Mexico.
The Fairmont Mayakoba Resort is in the town of Riviera Maya, located on the Caribbean Coast, which equates to white sand beaches and crystal-clear blue water. With not one, but three resorts on the property, it’s sure to have the amenities to satisfy even the most discerning of travelers.
The championship golf course at the Mayakoba, El Camaleón, was designed by Greg Norman. This eighteen-hole course is home to the PGA Tour’s Mayakoba golf Classic. This summer, the resort is celebrating 100 days of summer, which allows juniors to play the course for free with a paying adult. This is great opportunity for the golfing family to tee up and play a few rounds together whilst keeping the budget in mind. El Camaleón covers many landscapes and ventures from the mangroves to the sea, it is definitely one of Mexico’s must-play courses.
The Resort also has many other activities such as guided ecological tours, spa treatments and the exploration of Mayan foods. A unique perk of the Resort is its prevalent Mayan culture throughout, which is also very rich in the region. One of AAA’s five diamond resorts, the Fairmont Mayakoba is a tropical paradise that offers both luxury and adventure. It’s an ideal retreat for a family looking to break away from the beaten path.
