October 3, 2017
UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya is a luxury all-inclusive property that takes influence for its ethos and design from the locale. Offering equal parts international outpost and local getaway, UNICO 20°87° fully showcases its native surroundings – from the local art displayed both in-room and throughout the property that can be purchased by guests, to the food and beverage offerings that foster a sense of regional celebration. The hotel aims to help guests get under the skin of the surrounding area so that they leave with a sense of its heritage and culture.
Authenticity is interwoven into every aspect of the hotel. Its culinary offering celebrates local flavours and produce. Locals have taken on the role of ‘host’, providing a personal touch for guests and a knowledgeable go to person to ask for advice on the area. UNICO 20°N 87°W also offers a completely immersive experience for guests looking to explore the local landscape. From guided tours around one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza, to swimming with Dolphins and dining in a lagoon beneath starlit skies, guests can choose from several packages that have been tailor made to showcase the very best of the area – all of them are inspired by the natural wonder and majesty of the local region.
Guests looking for an authentic experience that allows them to understand a little more about local traditions, heritage and culture can choose from:
Guided Tour of Chichen Itza and Cenote
Guests will engage themselves in an atmospheric backdrop as they admire one of the Seven Wonders of the World with a guided tour of the Chichen Itza archaeological site. The tour takes in some of the famed Mayan buildings such as the Kukuclan Pyramid, offering a narrative of the history of these ancient structures. The tour also offers guests a snapshot of authentic living with the opportunity to taste test an array of local Yucatecan dishes. Finally, the tour offers a chance to cool off with a refreshing dip in a magical cenote.
Coba and Tulum
This historical experience allows guests to enjoy a mixture of history, nature and seascapes as they explore Tulum, one of the most unique areas of the Riviera Maya. The journey takes in the area of Coba and its thick jungle, offering the opportunity to discover the mysteries of one of the last areas to be occupied by the ancient Mayans. This archaeological site is considered one of the most impressive in the world.
Dine & Sail
Underneath the starlit skies, soft saxophone music and the sounds of the lagoon’s waves set the scene for a romantic evening on-board the Columbus Galeon. After a savoury three course meal, guests can take a stroll around the lagoon whilst sipping a cocktail from the bar. This tour offers the perfect opportunity to take in stunning views and enjoy local delicacies.
Selvatica Extreme Canopy
Adrenaline junkies can head out on-board an army truck to Selvatica Extreme, the largest and fastest circuit on the peninsula, which boasts 12 different high speed zip lines. After gliding between treetops on a zip-line canopy tour, guests can then enjoy the crystal clear waters of a nearby cenote. Afterwards, guests will be rewarded with a delicious lunch of local favourites and aguas frescas, a refreshing Mexican staple.
Garrafon Natural Reef Park
Nature lovers will be enchanted by the exotic Garrafon Natural Reek Park situated on the southern point of Isla Mujeres. The reefs, cliffs and breath-taking seas views will leave visitors spellbound.
