The Riviera Maya is located in Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula. In the State of Quintana Roo, the Riviera Maya rests alongside the Caribbean Sea.
The Fairmont Mayakoba Playa del Carmen, situated in the heart of the Riviera Maya, is approximately 42 miles or 70 km south of Cancun. Extended throughout 47 acres, the AAA five-diamond resort has spacious rooms and suites in the main building and in two-story casitas, with stunning views of the sea, golf course, mangroves, or lush tropical forests.
Between sunrise over the Caribbean and a night sky filled with the same brilliant stars that inspired the Maya, you have plenty of time to savor the fare at one of four exceptional restaurants. Wake up to an Oceanside breakfast and unwind with a poolside lunch; regroup with cocktails at sunset and wind up with some very sweet endings.
In such an idyllic place, personal gatherings and events take on an unforgettable magic. Whether in the lavish Ballroom - opening to a water and sun filled courtyard - or at unique well-appointed breakout rooms, Fairmont Mayakoba promises an occasion to surpass all expectations.
There is a young-adult/children's center equipped with games and computers, as well as an outdoor play area. Beach horseback riding excursions are popular at nearby Loma Bonita, while every conceivable water sport is offered along Playa del Carmen's easily accessible string of main beaches including Playa Tukan.
Our private beach is located just a quick ride from the resort, take your bike, ride our shuttle or take or electric boat to our magnificent sapphire blue waters and white powdered sandy beach.
