The luxury AAA-5 Diamond and Preferred by Nature Certified Fairmont Mayakoba Riviera Maya resort is located in a private gated resort community, surrounded by a pristine Caribbean shoreline, 30 miles from the Cancun International (CUN) airport.


Escape to a tropical paradise in the lush rainforest of Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Relax under swaying palms and walk along the pristine white-sand beach. Embark on an eco-tour boat cruise through the mangrove-filled jungle or snorkel, and swim in the clear turquoise water. Discover our magnificent 594-acre private community on the Caribbean shoreline, which is newly renovated, and totally reimagined with a variety of activities to do within property.


At Fairmont Mayakoba merging comfortable indoor spaces with the resorts’ five natural ecosystems was at the core of its recent multi-million-dollar renovation. This project included upgrading the resort’s three expansive pool areas and the addition of a new state-of-the-art beach club – Maykana – which features grand terraces, private luxury cabanas, sunken fire pits, outdoor restaurants, and seaside pools that bring a sophisticated flair to beachfront relaxation and resort dining.


The resort has also taken its array of outdoor activities to the next level. From world-class dive excursions and training for divers of every level, snorkeling along the world’s second-largest barrier reef, relaxing on a guided catamaran tour, or cruising above or below the water on a sea bob underwater scooter, ocean adventures are just the beginning. Guests can also explore Fairmont’s extensive freshwater canal system via guided tour boats, kayaks or hydro bikes. For those who prefer to stay on land, bikes and electric scooters are an excellent way to enjoy the natural outdoor environments of Mayakoba. Or guests can simply walk the extensive network of nature trails, looking out for some 240 bird, mammal, and reptile species, including macaws, geckos, iguanas, spider monkeys, agoutis, and coatis. While world-class golf is only steps away at El Camaleón Golf Course, guests can also experience something different at the resort’s archery center or visit the sports club for a game of tennis.


No matter what your outdoor pleasure is, it is certain to be found at Fairmont Mayakoba, where the warm Caribbean sun meets one of the world’s most unique resort environments.
