When I think of Mexico, I think of the beach. But Rosewood Mayakoba is a reminder of the Riviera Maya's wilder side. Yes, there is a mile-long stretch of Caribbean sand to sun on at the resort and guests can opt for beachfront or ocean view accommodations. But it's hard not to be captivated by the emerald green jungles and the turquoise waters of the lagoon that winds through Rosewood Mayakoba. Waking up to the jungle and lagoon is a truly special experience.
The lagoon is home to many species of fish and the surrounding habitat is filled with egrets, iguanas, turtles, and other wildlife. It's worth requesting a lagoon tour with Rosewood's in-house naturalist to learn more about the flora and fauna and for a chance to spot Rosewood’s long-term residents.
