Escape this Winter in Mayakoba

Last winter, my family discovered the beauty of the Riviera Maya area in Mexico. The Mayakoba property is truly one of a kind. We stayed at the beautiful Fairmont Mayakoba. We dined at every hotel, took a boat tour and relaxed on the beach.

Mayakoba is a gated resort just an hour south of Cancun Airport. Check out my top 5 tips so you can enjoy the best Rivera Maya has to offer.

  1. Arrange airport transport ahead of time. When you arrive at the airport, you can look for your transport at the baggage claim exit.

  2. Pack extra snacks for airport arrival. Baggage claim wait times at Cancun Airport can be brutal.

  3. Make dinner reservations after you check in. The restaurants are all delicious but they do fill up.

  4. If you are planning any trips to Mayan ruins or nearby tourist attractions, you should absolutely book a tour guide. It does not have to be through the hotel, but you will want a tour guide to bypass lines or wait times.

  5. Don't forget the spa! It is a magical place and worth every penny.
