Woke up early for sailing lessons but the watersports arena is closed today due to high winds. Did you know Club Med includes the following activities, free of charge: sailing, snorkeling, SUP, windsurfing, waterskiing, scuba, wakeboarding, flying trapeze, tennis, archery, mini golf, salsa lessons, and a crazy variety of daily fitness classes? Club Med Cancun Yucatan really is the perfect resort for active travelers! Even more so for families with different ideas of vacation!

Located just 20 minutes between Cancun and Riviera Maya, El Dorado Maroma By Karisma All Inclusive is a beautiful resort option for discerning guests. I cannot describe the feeling of this resort. A smaller resort with only 157 rooms it is more intimate, lush, authentic, tropical, warm, and romantic than the others we have visited. If you are looking for a place to really experience Mexico, this is it. They have Mi Hotelitos, villas, and Palofitos - something for everyone. If you're traveling with a group, the villa is only one of 3 at Karisma properties and can sleep up to 10. This is the ultimate in exclusivity and is hidden away behind lush vegetation with a private pool.

Another fun fact: Karisma features Gourmet All-Inclusive so their focus is on the food experience. No "buffets" here!

Because of the lush foliage throughout the resort, this was the coolest (temperature-wise) of our adventures! If you love the beach but not the heat that comes with it, this is an option for you!
