Riviera Maya Family Holidays

Perched on the upper-right-hand corner of the Yucatan peninsula, just some 70 km (42 miles) south of glitzy Cancún where shiny skyscrapers dominate the skyline, Banyan Tree Mayakoba is tucked between the pristine emerald green tropical mangrove and dazzling turquoise Caribbean Sea. Along this coast, home to the second-largest coral reef in the world stretching from the Yucatán to Guatemala, Mayakoba has made its distinction by being a carefully maintained ecosystem of dunes, mangroves and freshwater lagoons.
The heart of Riviera Maya - the 100-mile stretch of blue-green Caribbean and bleached white sand that stretches from Cancun and south to Tulum - is a small but buzzing beach town called Playa del Carmen which has grown tremendously in popularity during the last decade.
Just minutes from the beach, the resort is also located within an easy distance of three stunning and highly significant archaeological sites - the Chichen Itza complex, the Tulum seaside ruins, and the Coba jungle temples.

Family Holidays in Riviera Maya

Subject to availability, mangrove boat tours are offered to guests, who embark on an electric-powered lancha (covered boat), guided by our nature specialist who is well equipped with knowledge of the special environment of the development. This interactive two-hour session brings guests on a bird-watching and animal-spotting adventure, sharing intimate knowledge of the friendly creatures that include tortoises, iguanas and even a crocodile or two living freely in their natural environment.
If you are traveling with children, we understand that you seek special activities to keep them occupied. Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers a Kids Meeting point with different activities for kids during the day and all week. Activities include eco tours, video games, beach activities and more.
