Riviera Maya - Barcelo Maya Grand Resort
Updated: Feb 2
Fly Air Transat to stunning Riviera Maya - once a land of quaint fishing villages, now one of the hottest destinations on the planet.
With its coastline dotted with high-end resorts, Barcelo Maya Grand offers fine dining, luxury spas, endless shopping, and one of the best stretch of clear turquoise beach, you will never want to leave.
The Barcelo Grand Resort - Stay at 1 and play at 4
The Barceló Grand Resort includes 4 different hotels: Barceló Maya Beach, Barceló Maya Caribe, Barceló Maya Tropical and Barceló Maya Colonial – all of which I would recommend. When you stay at 1 you have access to the facilities of all 4.
This incredible beachfront resort spans 1.2 miles and has 14 different bars for enjoying the best Caribbean cocktails, including a 24-hour bar with buffet service, shopping complex and many more offering.
Collectivos are mini vans that locals use. Experience the local culture by taking one on a day trip to Tulum. A pleasant walk to the road (HWY 307) and cross the street, watch for one, then flag it down. They will also shine their headlight to see if you want a ride. They can be a bit crowded and drive fast - but that's part of the fun. The first stop in Tulum is Tulum ruins or you can get off at Tulum Centro and rent a bicycle for the day. You can pay in pesos or US$
