As the Riviera Maya’s first environmentally conscious golf-and-spa complex, the Fairmont Mayakoba is an eco-friendly alternative to the monolithic resorts clustered along the Caribbean coast of the Yucatán Peninsula. One of three hotels in the large Mayakoba development that’s just a 50-minute drive south of Cancún, the Fairmont is set among 45 acres of lush, tropical mangroves and canals, and has a 1,180-foot-long white-sand beach. There are all the standard resort amenities: five swimming pools, four restaurants—and an aesthetic that pairs thatched roofs and bright colors with slatted wood doors and marble floors. The Fairmont combines them with biologically sensitive initiatives such as a Greg Norman–designed golf course certified by Audubon International, and walkways designed to preserve indigenous mangrove forests and protect the hundreds of specifes of local birds and animals.
