Watersports are the name of Fairmont Mayakoba’s game, so you’ll be sure to get your H2O adventure fix. From sea kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding to windsurfing, sailing and kitesurfing lessons, you’ll never have to endure a dull (or dry) moment. Plus, looking to venture off property into the locale? Home to the world’s second largest coral reef, the Riviera Maya is a mecca for phenomenal Caribbean scuba diving and snorkeling.

The culture of Mexico and the country’s Riviera Maya region is not only rich in sight and sound, but also in taste. While Fairmont Mayakoba’s prime location allows you to embrace local dining, shopping and nightlife in the charming nearby village of Playa del Carmen and to discover ancient Mayan civilizations with a visit to the Mayan ruins at Tulum, Coba or Chichen Itzá, you can also savor the vivid flavors of Mexico right on the resort’s property. With culinary activities like guided Mexican craft beer tastings, wine tastings and Mezcal or tequila tastings — some even paired with edible insect degustation — you can experience Mexico's many different flavors first-hand.
