What Makes This Resort So Special?

This is the only resort in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere. It is a very remote, exclusive, luxury resort.

Reviewers have noted that it is so great to get off the tourist track and head out to this secluded spot hidden away from all the mega resorts and tourist attractions.
