Beloved Playa Mujeres
This adults-only, all-inclusive property that's
part of the Excellence Group is located just
minutes from Cancun on a long stretch of
white-sand beach. It's an all-suite property

pursuits such as seaside golfing and deep-sea
fishing, and then there's the uber-modern

as its backdrop. It boasts an over-the-top aqua
therapy area, and a fitness center featuring
Technogym equipment, including the new

a Therapeutic Ritual, wellness and nutrition
workshops, a fitness program and special spa
treatments (call for rates).
The Accommodation: With so many "suite"
options, it's tough to handpick just one
accommodation to recommend, but since
our hand is forced we'll go with the 1,206-sq.ft., 2-story Casita Suite with Plunge Pool
Ocean Front. It features a private rooftop
terrace with plunge pool, and a king-bedded
master bedroom, and it overlooks the

Caribbean Sea. Rates for July range from
$261 to $289 and go back down a bit starting
in September.
Let's Get Active: Guests can choose from
yoga, Pilates and aerobic training, and there
are scenic seaside paths where guests can go
walking, biking and running. ■
