ESCAPE THE COLD AND SNOW WITH A TRIP TO MEXICO’S BEAUTIFUL MAYAN RIVIERA
The Divine Destination Collection has just the remedy to beat the winter blues – a meticulously curated trip to the Yucatan Peninsula that will warm both your body and soul!
With a minimum of 15 friends and family, you can book a six-day private group trip that mixes lounging on pristine, white sandy beaches with jungle excursions, historical outings, and the best of Mexican cuisine – while enjoying the comfort and luxury The Divine Destination Collection is known for.
To make this adventure even more special – you’ll have the unique opportunity to visit a Mayan community to experience ancient traditions and spiritual ceremonies. A highly sophisticated civilization that thrived in both Mexico and Central America from 1800 B.C. to 900 A.D., the Maya are credited with developing astronomy, calendars, and hieroglyphic writing. They are also known for building elaborate pyramids, temples and palaces – all without metal tools.
MEXICO: MAYAN MYSTERY REVEALED
This luxury resort is located on the jungle-lush coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and is close to some of Mexico’s most famous historical sites, such as the El Castillo Pyramid at Chichén Itzá, as well as the local food and folk art markets and vibrant nightlife of Playa del Carmen.
The hotel spa is famous for its healing Mayan rituals and was built to align with the stars to create a positive energy flow. Many of the exclusive spa treatments use local ingredients, such as chocolate, honey, and Mayan herbs.
EXPLORING SECRET UNDERWATER CAVES
While at the Belmond Maroma, you’ll have the chance to take part in some spelunking, and explore the mysterious underwater caves of Rio Secreto, the Secret River, a natural underground river that was only discovered in 2007.
You’ll also feast on outstanding Mexican cuisine throughout your stay, including a private garden courtyard meal at the Aldea Corazon Restaurant. Even though the restaurant is in the heart of the bustling resort town of Playa Del Carmen, the tree-filled courtyard will make you feel like you are dining out in the jungle.
BUT THAT’S NOT THE ONLY JUNGLE EXPERIENCE IN STORE FOR YOU!
You’ll venture into the actual jungle with a visit to a local Mayan village to take part in an authentic Mayan ceremonial evening.
A local Shaman will show your group how to purify and renew the mind, body, and spirit in a Temazcal, or sweat lodge, and you can also take a cleansing swim in a cenote, a natural sinkhole or pit created by a collapsed cave ceiling and full of clear, fresh water. Since cenotes were the only source of water in the jungle, the Mayan people considered them sacred.
This special evening finishes off with a delicious traditional Mayan meal prepared by the local villagers.
NEXT STOP – THE BANYAN TREE MAYAKOBA
Next stop on the itinerary is the incredible Banyan Tree Mayakoba, an AAA Five Diamond luxury beach resort also on the coast of the Mayan Riviera. Thanks to a carefully maintained ecosystem that includes freshwater lagoons and mangroves, natural dunes, and intricate coral reefs, the resort is full of native fish and bird species.
After learning about Mayan traditions, culture, and archaeology at a special breakfast presentation, our expert guest speakers will take your group on a private tour of Tulum, an UNESCO World Heritage site known for its ancient Mayan ruins.
Lunch is at the celebrated Oscar & Lalo Restaurant, which has a beautiful tropical jungle garden, fresh seafood, and authentic Mexican and Yucatecan cuisine. You’ll also be treated to a personal Mayan horoscope reading before hopping aboard a boat to cruise the waterways while enjoying cocktails and canapés.
MAKE IT MAYAN!
Besides lots of free time to explore the beautiful Banyan Tree Mayakoba grounds and beach, you’ll get the chance to learn how to make some of the resort’s delicious Mexican treats at a fun, pop up “Make It Mayan” Cocktail Party. Tucked into a private tropical nook, you’ll find out how to make their divine guacamole, zesty pico de gallo salsa, and fabulous margaritas.
The Mayan Mystery journey culminates in grand style with an exclusive dinner in your very own 10,000-year-old cave surrounded by living stalactites and stalagmites. How’s that for a memorable finish to a fantastic trip!
Mexico: Mayan Mystery Revealed is a great way to bring a group of people together to celebrate a milestone anniversary, a special birthday or a customized retreat. If you are travelling alone or in a smaller group, The Divine Destination Collection plans to offer this trip again in the future.
