Virtuoso Life - November/December 2016 - 21
Your Grand Escapade
Adventures on the Green
If your ideal vacation includes perfectly manicured greens and spectacular
views of the Mexican Caribbean, you've come to the right place. Boasting
more than a dozen golf courses, Riviera Maya is home to the PGA Tour's OHL
Classic, with courses designed by legends Greg Norman and Robert Trent
Jones Jr. Practice your swing at El Camaleón Mayakoba with its immaculate
conditions and attentive service or check out the undulating greens at Playa
Paraiso Golf Club or Riviera Maya Golf Club.
Rest and Rejuvenate
From massages and Mayan-inspired body treatments, spas in Riviera Maya
harness the energy, beauty and spirit of the region in a truly unforgettable
way. Indulge in an authentic temazcál ritual which uses special herbs, hot
lava stones and steam to detoxify skin. Try the calming massage at the
Viceroy Riviera Maya, designed to purify the mind, body and soul with special
copal mud. Or pamper yourself with an 80-minute Royal Maya Massage in
the Grand Velas' impressive two-level spa, the area's largest spa sanctuary.
After Hours Excitement
Riviera Maya really comes to life once the sun goes down. With lively bars,
open-air beach clubs and music festivals, it's easy to get a taste of the
local scene. Stroll along Quinta Avenida in the heart of downtown Playa del
Carmen. Dine on favorites like cochinita pibil or pavo en relleno negro while
sipping a mezcal cocktail. And swing by some of the music festivals, including
the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival, considered one of the best in the world.
With exhilaration, relaxation and everything in between,
Riviera Maya has it all. Connect with your Virtuoso® travel advisor
