What is a perfect day in the Riviera Maya?


Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

The Riviera Maya extends along the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula from Puerto Morelos to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. Once home to small fishing villages, the Riviera Maya coastline has since been developed into a modern tourist corridor offering the very best of high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf in Mexico. An ideal vacation destination, the Riviera Maya is home to some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in all of Mexico with expansive stretches of powdery white sand lapped by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Hacienda Tres Rios

Spend the day at a luxury beach club where you can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, aquatic sports, spa services and a variety of modern amenities. You’ll find some of the best in the resort destination of Playa del Carmen, a friendly tourist town where you’ll also discover the Riviera Maya’s best shopping, dining and nightlife.

Vacations are always a good time to indulge in your favorite foods and try regional specialties.  Designed to ensure you never run out of choices, Hacienda Tres Ríos offers countless dining options, private dining alternatives, a sommelier (wine steward), and 24-hour room service – all included in this endless luxury, all inclusive resort.

1.    Wake up in one of the resort’s heavenly beds and order a light breakfast from 24-hr room service or go to one of the restaurants.

Make yourself at home in one of our 273 spacious suites. Our design style is modern Mexican inspired by the hacienda style of yesterday with features like local mahogany, Mexican marble floors and bathrooms. To ensure a luxurious night’s sleep, each suite welcomes you with 300 thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, extra-thick luxury mattresses, and a pillows menu.

2. Put on your swimsuit and either:

a. Go to the private nature park & swim in a cenote or kayak down to the beach. Tres Rios Resort is refreshingly unique: 326 acres of pristine tropical rainforests intersected by three winding freshwater rivers, decorated by ten fascinating cenotes (cave-like sinkholes with natural wells), home to 120 species of plants and 90 species of animals.  It is the only nature park in the Yucatan Peninsula that includes three distinct ecosystems: jungle, mangrove forest, and coastal dunes.

b. Jump into one of the refreshing pools after having a delicious tequilajito*.

Sip refreshing cocktails at the VIP and adult-only areas by the pool, or enjoy watching children play on the beach. The open bar service at Hacienda Tres Ríos offers a wide variety of premium domestic and imported alcoholic beverages that add to your enjoyment of a dream vacation in the Riviera Maya. * Try a traditional mojito, with a Mexican twist: tequila

c. Book the Sense Adventure tour, a journey through nature & your senses. Walking gingerly along a path in the nature park’s tropical rainforest, this brief Sense Adventure Tour heightens the senses. Primarily, four of a person’s five senses are enhanced because before the journey begins, visitors are blindfolded. Conceived as a temporary escape from the routine preoccupations of daily life, this journey is a unique way to unwind and experience nature.
