The Destination
Those seeking the beauty of Mexico's rowdy Mayan Riviera in a more relaxed setting will find the cool, crisp Caribbean waters and chalk-soft beaches in the residential mien of Puerto Aventuras much to their liking. Laid-back but not scaled-back, Puerto Aventuras enjoys the same confluence of Caribbean and European sensibilities as Playa del Carmen with a much more thrilling landscape: fallen-in caverns-turned-diving pools, glistening palm jungles, macaw-laden ancient ruins, and a harbor that launches thousands of ships from across the globe each year.

The Digs
Much like the surrounding Puerto Aventuras, Barceló Maya Colonial and Barceló Maya Tropical lends themselves to relaxation and invigoration. Rooms glow with smooth stone-tiled floors, etched wood furnishings, breezy ceiling fans, and soft amber lighting. After a day of water sports or simply lounging at the outdoor pool or whirlpool—all on site—you can settle into your bathrobe and slippers with a pull from the minibar as you watch the setting sun soak the palms in the tropical garden outside.

The Diversions
The Yucatan Peninsula is a treasure trove of natural wonder. Explore the technicolor reefs and coral-laden shipwrecks in Playa del Carmen or dive with dolphins and manatees in the crystalline surf. Survey the well-preserved ruins of Tulum, which boast three nearly 600-year-old Mayan temples. When you return from a day of adventuring, treat your sure-to-be-sore muscles with a massage or body treatment at on-site U-Spa before toasting your Escape to paradise with a glass of vino and a delectable entrée at Ristorante Massimo.

  • "This resort was great. Beautiful, well-kept grounds, great beach, [and] good snorkeling right off the beach. The food was good with a large selection. Can't wait to return."
