Set in the exquisite Riviera Maya, this fitness adventure is designed to nurture both body and soul in one of Mexico’s most beautiful landscapes. Situated on the Yucatan Peninsula, where low tropical jungle gives way to pristine white crescent beaches punctuated with rocky headlands, your dedicated personal trainer will use the natural elements of this stunning terrain to give you the fitness experience of a lifetime.
The Riviera Maya possesses a wealth of natural treasures, including two of the world’s longest underwater cave systems. Whether you’re trekking through the jungle, cave diving or swimming with whale sharks, you’ll come face to face with an incredible array of flora and fauna, including dolphins, turtles, starfish, manta rays and native birds.
Among other incredible sites, you’ll take in the ruins of Tulum, a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city situated atop 12-meter (39-foot) cliffs, from which its ancient occupants doubtless marveled at the exquisite, sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. It’s no wonder that heavenly Tulum, perched at the edge of paradise, was one of the last cities to be inhabited by the ancient Mayas! You’ll also visit Chichen Itza, home of one of the new Seven Wonders of the World: the Kukulkan Pyramid, an exquisite temple also known as “El Castillo” (The Castle).
Maroma Resort is a seaside hideaway nestled between a verdant jungle and a pristine private beach famed for its sugary-fine sand and excellent weather. Here simple indulgence meets genuine Mexican hospitality, providing the perfect getaway. Just a few hundred yards from the world’s second largest barrier reef, it’s an ideal spot for snorkelling and scuba diving — providing an up-close look at one of the ocean’s most fascinating ecosystems. Among other amenities Maroma Resort boasts an observation tower with magnificent 360-degree views, luxurious swimming pools surrounded by tropical palm trees, tennis and a labyrinth of paths that wind through the resort’s lush jungle.
