Hotel Esencia is a boutique Mexican hotel, located between Tulum and Playa del Carmen on a still untouched Xpu-Ha Bay. Originally, serving as a private villa of an Italian duchess, the beachfront oasis is surrounded by Yucatán jungle, and has been reimagined in 2014 with the arrival of a new owner.
There are 29 tropical-chic suites and villas, with private terraces and personal touches like complimentary beach bags, snorkeling gear, and Havaiana sandals.
Mayan Riviera is a mecca of activity. Indulge in some of the best cave diving in the world. Snorkel in cenotes and natural reserves. For the art and history lovers, visit the Mayan ruins in Tulum or Chichen Itza. See the Cancun Underwater Museum for a once in a lifetime experience. Paddleboard through a magical green lagoon (Casa Cenote).
Classics like margaritas and fish tacos done right. Moles from Oaxaca, fruits from Yucatán, and wines from Baja. Fresh cold-pressed juices from the Juice Bar.
Fly into Cancun and get a taxi/car service to Playa del Carmen.
