Ventus Ha at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort

A recent addition to the El Cid resort campus, Ventus Ha opened in 2021, bringing a sophisticated vacation option to Puerto Morelos. That sophistication reaches its apex — literally — at Rüf, a spectacular adults-only rooftop pool bar. We’d forgive you if you ended up spending most of your trip at Rüf. It’s that seductive, with a chic atmosphere, panoramic views and creative cocktails. Kick back on a Balinese-style bed, stargaze using one of the bar’s many telescopes, enjoy the chill beats of a live DJ, indulge in a rubdown in the massage area … is this paradise? 

Mayan Palace Vidanta Riviera Maya

Tucked away in groves of lush jungle, the Mayan Palace at Vidanta Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen offers a respite from busy life. Here, families splash in sparkling oceanside pools that stretch to the horizon. Located by Jade Boutique, this sprawling pool area features a myriad of small, interconnected pools, dotted with vibrant Mayan sculptures, as well as other water features. Enjoy a bite from Balché during the day, or Frida’s Cantina at night, or savor a delicious cocktail from the pool bar. For those looking to skip the sun while lounging poolside, you can rent a palapa to shade you during the day.
