The Grand Mayan Resort lies along a stretch of beautiful white sand beach between Cancun and the picturesque fishing village of Playa del Carmen. Located in the heart of the Riviera Maya this exclusive resort provides a window into ancient Mayan history amidst tropical beauty and modern amenities.
The Grand Mayan Resort itself is built around a manned lagoon located behind a low dune beyond which the crystal blue Caribbean Sea beckons. You can spend the day relaxing on the beach or exploring the waters offshore on a Jet Ski, water skiing, or take in the pristine underwater views through a snorkel mask. If a day trip is in order then one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, is the perfect way to spend the day.
If you want to do more than just relax on the beach then the Grand Mayan has plenty to offer. Cancun and its active nightlife and club scene are short ride away. Or spend the day shopping along Playa del Carmen's two mile long walking mall known as the Avenida Quinta (Fifth Avenue). This nearby tourist destination offers a seemingly endless street of bars, restaurants, shops and hotels.
