Some of you still cannot be with us right now but we can bring the beauty of the Mexican Caribbean and the Yucatan to you. Here’s our monthly gallery showcasing some of the region’s many natural and historical attractions. How many have you visited? Which ones would you like to explore on future visits to Grand Residences?

Rio Secreto
Exploring this chain of caves in the jungle just to the south of Playa del Carmen is an incredible experience. Your guide will show you hidden chambers deep in the limestone rock filled with crystal-clear water and impressive stalactites and stalagmites formed over millions of years.

Ik-kil
Located near Chichen Itza, this is one of the Yucatan’s most popular cenotes, a huge sinkhole with towering limestone walls festooned with jungle creepers and aerial tree roots.

Holbox
Wide beaches and the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, fishermen unloading their catch and flocks of gulls and pelicans waiting expectantly for scraps, this is life on Holbox, the northernmost island of the Mexican Caribbean. A slower pace, the chance to see wildlife and incredible sunsets are some of its rustic charms.

Ek Balam
Located 20 minutes to the north of Valladolid, the ancient city of Ek Balam is best known for the Acropolis, the tiered pyramid crowned by a temple with a carved stucco façade depicting ancient lords, gods, sacred animals and earth monsters.

Tankah
Between Xel-Ha and Tulum, Tankah is a lovely palm-lined bay with cenotes in the mangroves and tiny Maya temples in jungle clearings.
