With its own private marina and numerous onsite lounges and restaurants, the all-inclusive Grand Oasis Tulum provides visitors with plenty to do without ever leaving the resort. But for those willing to explore beyond this self-sufficient slice of paradise, the cliff-top Mayan ruins of Tulum and the nightlife of Playa del Carmen are both just a short drive away.
In addition to covering all meals, snacks, and drinks, the resort’s all-inclusive privileges entitle you to snorkeling and kayaking equipment for exploring the Caribbean Sea, which is just steps from your room. Guests can also take a dip in one of several swimming pools—including an infinity pool—that are scattered throughout the property. Swim-up bars and thatched-roof palapas add to the laid-back atmosphere.
During the day, you can refuel at one of 11 onsite restaurants, each of which has a different vibe. Nosh on sushi at Nori, savor Brazilian steakhouse cuisine at Bahia Rodizzio, or dine al fresco on the rooftop at Cafe del Mar. At night, the resort’s lounges come to life with live piano music, martinis, and dancing. Oceanfront guest rooms are outfitted with Mexican-inspired décor and a private balcony looking out onto the ocean. Each room boasts modern amenities such as satellite television and self-fluffing pillows.
Mexico’s Riviera Maya: Rich with History and Tropical Calm
Just south of Cancún, the Riviera Maya is a nearly 80-mile stretch of Caribbean coastline fronted by towns rich in Mexican culture. For some of the area’s best beaches, clubs, and snorkeling reefs, head to the rapidly growing city of Playa del Carmen. Farther south, Tulum sits on a perch of rocky bluffs where you’ll find ancient ruins including temples and dwellings. The inhabitants of Tulum—which means “walled” in the aboriginal language—first erected the city’s outer fortress to protect themselves from belligerent invaders. Today, the wall guards the archeological zone, beginning with an entryway of two corbel arches and a limestone house built over an underwater cave.
Swimming in the secret caves isn’t allowed, but a scenic drive south of Playa del Carmen brings you to the Yucatán Peninsula’s legendary limestone cenotes—freshwater sinkholes created by an underground river system. At the Cenote Cristalino, you can jump from terraced outcroppings into an exposed pool or go snorkeling in underwater caves. You can also watch locals expertly flip, dive, and synchronously cannonball into the clear water at this popular weekend hangout.
