Last week my bestie Rachael and I flew down to Mexico for an unforgettable Wellness Getaway at the Fairmont Mayakoba! As soon as we drove on to the property I knew we were going to have the best time. It was the most blissful and beautiful three days. So many of you messaged me to tell me about your stays too which made me even more excited to be there to experience the magic of Mayakoba for myself! Today on the blog, I’m sharing more details of the property and what we did while we were there!
Rachael and I left Los Angeles early and arrived at the Cancun airport in the late afternoon. We had a long line at customs but after we cleared it was smooth sailing! We met our driver and in 35 minutes we were pulling up to the gated AAA-5 Diamond property and we were welcomed with table-side guacamole and fresh-squeezed margaritas, which was literally a dream come true!
After happy hour, we were directed to our room, we stayed in a Signature Casita Queen Queen and it was the perfect space! Plenty of room, the beds were seriously comfy, and the shower was incredible and the bathrooms were fully stocked with Le Labo. We unpacked quickly and then started getting ready for the evening.
We met up with the entire group for our first dinner at La Laguna later that evening. My blogger babes @claireguentz and @omandthecity were also on this trip with me which made this trip even more special and fun! The Fairmont Mayakoba completely spoiled us with a delicious spread so we could try several appetizers, entrees, and desserts, all of which were not only healthy but delicious. After dinner, we had the opportunity to do a Tequila tasting which was so much fun to be able to try the different Tequila they have to offer!
The next morning we woke up to catch the sunrise! The property is over 200 acres and they offer BMW bikes for the guests to use to get you from the guest rooms to the pools and beaches and back again! We hopped onto the bikes and made our way to the beach just in time for Sunrise Beach Yoga! Riding the bikes was seriously one of my favorite things that the property offered. It was a fun way to still be active even if the rest of the day was spent lounging/napping by the beach or pool. After yoga, we had breakfast at Las Brisas, which is the restaurant right on the beach with ocean views.
Shortly after breakfast, we made our way down to the beach to learn about the Coral Reef Restoration program they have at the Fairmont Mayakoba. They are working to restore and grow more coral. We took a little sailboat out to the go snorkeling to see how they are restoring the coral. I loved this learning moment so much, when I travel I love to learn about the locals or the history so this was a fun little excursion.
The rest of the afternoon, Rachael and I spent snapping photos with coconuts, taking dips in the ocean, and sipping margaritas while eating nachos beachside! My dream afternoon, personally! Unfortunately, for Rachael and I are sunscreen was expired so we both got really burnt! Don’t be like us, buy a new sunscreen for your trip! After we were beached out and burnt we got back on the bikes and made our way back to the main part of the property and then decided to explore the property more with the bikes and shoot some more pictures! You really feel like you’re in the jungle at the Fairmont Mayakoba, it reminded me so much of Bali in a way!
Later that evening we met back up with the group and then had dinner at Las Brisas! They went all out once again and the meal was delicious! The Fairmont Mayakoba uses organic produce and has a sustainable menu with items that are farmed by the local Mayan community!
Our second full day began with a delicious buffet-style breakfast at La Laguna, I recommend finding the mango and getting a giant bowl of it along with an omelet and make sure you stop by the quesadilla station, you can’t go wrong with any of it though! After breakfast, we made our way down to the dock and jumped aboard the cutest little boat for a tour of the Mayakoba Canals! They had coconuts waiting for us as we sat back and soaked in the lush surroundings of the Mayakoba community! The boat tour was one of my favorite parts of the trip, it reminded me of home in a way since my parents own a boat that is very similar!
As soon as the boat tour ended we made our way over to the Willow Stream Spa for our treatments. I went with the 60-minute deep tissue massage and it was perfect pressure and relaxing massage experience. Also, the massage tables they have there are amazing, all of us came out of the spa amazing, you’ll see what I’m talking about if you go for a massage! Afterward, I enjoyed the sauna, steam room, inhalation room, and rooftop pools.
Once we finished up at the spa we had our Sac Actun Cenote excursion! The cenotes are natural caves or sinkholes that are filled with natural water, so basically an underground pool or river! I was SO excited about this because I have seen stunning images from all over the internet of the Cenotes and I couldn’t wait to see it in real life! It was about an hour drive from our hotel and as we boarded the van we were handed the cutest boxed lunches to enjoy on our drive.
Once we arrived at the Cenotes we geared up in lifejackets and snorkel gear and made our way down to the entrance. It was basically a big hole in the ground with a ladder and I was honestly terrified to climb down it, but I did it! You just can’t see the bottom when you start so you feel like you’ll never reach the bottom but it actually wasn’t that bad! It’s worth the climb down, the cenotes were stunning! The water is very cold so just prepare yourself for that! It was quite the experience, cold water, bats flying past your head and crystal clear water below you! I would 100% recommend checking them out during your stay!
We made our way back to the Fairmont and then got ready for the farewell dinner with the entire group! It was another amazing, delicious, and healthy meal and the best conversations!
Something that really sets the Fairmont Mayakoba apart from other properties is that they have sustainable offerings, such as recycled paper straws and they reuse fruit rinds to serve ice cream in, etc! I really appreciated the work they are putting in to be more sustainable! They put the guest first and literally every single person we encountered that worked for the property was SO nice, checking in always to see if we needed anything or if they could do anything to make our stay more pleasant!
My stay at the Fairmont Mayakoba was truly an incredible 5-star experience! I couldn't recommend it enough for anyone looking for a wellness destination that has it all! I did not want to come home! Make sure to visit their website to learn more + book your stay!
