About Banyan Tree Mayakoba, Playa del Carmen

Luxury villa resort with private beach

Mexico's Riviera Maya

A 45-minute drive from Cancún's airport, the seaside Banyan Tree Mayakoba sits along a vast coral reef on the Riviera Maya coast. A 15-minute drive brings you to the souvenir shops and funky boutiques of the 20-block-long La Quinta Avenida in the town of Playa del Carmen.

El Camaleon golfing

Great golf is across the street at the El Camaleon course, and stunning scuba diving can be had in the underwater caves of the cenotes that surround the resort. You can also tour nature by bicycle, kayak, or horse at the Tres Rios eco-park, a 20-minute drive away.

Private beach and jungle

A private white-sand beach and acres of wildlife-rich jungle and mangrove forest are yours to explore within the hotel's gated property. After touring the green grounds on the bike path, you can cool down in the 2 outdoor pools, swim-up bars, or at the spa. Buffet breakfast is available (surcharge). Guests will additionally enjoy complimentary parking. A 24-hour airport shuttle is available on request (surcharge).

Your private pool

Each of the 117 air-conditioned villas features a private pool and private outdoor living space. You can connect with free WiFi while enjoying the garden views, or watch your 42-inch flat-screen TV with satellite channels.
