July 22 is National Hammock Day and Mahekal Beach Resort is celebrating all month long! To slow things down a bit and keep with the spirit of “hammocking,” Mahekal is offering a “Swing in the Sun” escape - starting at $200/night and providing travelers with 30% savings along with breakfast and lunch or dinner daily, a round of signature cocktails per person/per day, $150 bonus credit for 6+ nights, early check-in and late checkout.

Unlike other high-rise or corridor accommodations in the area, hand-laid, hidden stone pathways lead guests to their private, palapa-style bungalow touting crochet hammocks swaying from the open-air terraces. Kick back and relax (cold margarita in hand, of course) with unparalleled views of the Riviera Maya jungle or Playa del Carmen’s longest stretch of beach.

*Minimum 3 night stay

Mahekal Beach Resort: Playa del Carmen

Nestled between the dense Riviera Maya jungle and Playa del Carmen’s longest stretch of beach lies Mahekal Beach Resort, the only resort of its kind in all of Playa del Carmen.

Unlike other high-rise, corridor hotels, elevators are not found at Mahekal, and the buildings are not much taller than the palm trees surrounding them. Hand-laid, hidden stone pathways lead to 196 private, palapa-style bungalows, all steps from the sweeping, sandy beach, complete with open-air terraces, crochet hammocks, personal plunge pools or outdoor moon showers.

This authentic raw-luxe retreat embodies a Swiss Family Robinson feel with high-end finishes and touches of Mayan culture. Greeted with crisp Caribbean scents, lush vegetation and colorful bougainvillea, Mahekal — which means “magical” in the ancient Mayan language — offers a memorable, magical escape with on-property amenities including four sparkling swimming pools, a seaside hot tub, a Mayan-inspired Revive Spa and fitness center, Vida Aquatica Dive Center, as well as five restaurants and bars.

The ultimate coastal experience is complete with a carefree, bohemian atmosphere, the look and feel of Mexico’s traditional past with thrilling adventures nearby.
