Warm, frothy water spills over and around you. You're stretched out in a private Jacuzzi, on the terrace of your suite, at the all inclusive Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda on the Mayan Riviera. Just 10 minutes from Playa del Carmen, this award-winning resort
is the perfect escape from everyday cares. It's also a great base for exploring Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.
As you stroll along the private beach, cast an eye toward the thatched Mayan roofs in this 180-acre, tropical paradise. When you're ready to challenge wind and water, grab a windsurfing rig from the beach, in front of the resort, and embark on an adventure.
Or if you prefer the undersea world, you'll find snorkeling and diving opportunities nearby.
Two, huge, free-form pools occupy more than 30,000 sq ft between the main buildings of Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda and the beach. Designer chaise lounges, deck-side and within the pools, invite guests to take it easy. But you'll also find plenty of activity
in the pools, from aquatic spinning to pool volleyball. When you prefer to stay dry, catch a beach volleyball game, or try the two tennis courts.
After an active day, consider pampering yourself with the "Labyrinth of Sensations," at the hotel's state-of-the-art spa. This thermal-bath circuit awakens your body with a footbath, sauna and vapor therapy. The spa offers special packages for couples, as
well as for pregnant women.
A dining dilemma awaits you. Should you choose salmon fillet with gorgonzola cheese, accompanied by red-pepper, mashed potatoes and Mediterranean vegetables, at Il Cuore Di Rossi? Or will it be beef medallions in Roquefort sauce, at L'Atelier?
After a great night in one of the rooms or suites at Bluebay Grand Esmeralda, you're ready to start exploring the fascinating, and even haunting, Mayan pyramids at Chichen Itza, about three hours away. Another fun outing near the hotel is Xcaret Park. Snorkel
in one of two underground rivers at the park, or swim with dolphins. From its butterfly pavilion to the bat cave and turtle farm, Xcaret Park is as special as this Blue Bay Resort.
