The Explorean Kohunlich in Kohunlich, Mexico

Enter into a beautiful tropical escape, deep in the jungles of Quintana Roo and far away from the distractions of the modern world, and discover The Explorean Kohunlich in Mexico. Near the Belize border at the base of the Yucatan Peninsula, this fabulously unique resort sweeps you away to the depths of untouched nature. With an all-inclusive program, consisting of meals and programmed activities each day, The Explorean Kohunlich will have you actively immersed in the environment. Stay in thatched-roof bungalows, where regional and modern style meet, and an open design brings the sights and sounds of nature into your room. Cool stone floors lead past gorgeous bathrooms with walk-in showers that open to your private garden, and lead out onto a porch complete with personal hammock. Breathe in the refreshing forest air, soak in the brilliant sunny skies, and discover the magic of the rainforest with your stay at The Explorean Kohunlich.

As the sun rises majestically over the lush jungle canopy, head out to explore the wonders of ancient Maya with a tour to the Kohunlich archaeology site. Climb the pyramids for a sweeping view, then hike to Dzibanche to explore the Temple of Lintels and the Temple of the Owl. Take a day trip to Campeche, to see the sites of Xpuhil, Becan and Chicana, or go mountain biking along the eight-kilometer trail to Chichan-Ha, where there was once a 16th century Franciscan Mission. Rappel down a 70-meter rock face in Paraiso, shimmering waters stretching out below, then cool off with a swim in the depths of Bacalar Lagoon. Delight in a kayaking tour from the cenote of Xul-Ha, stretching down a channel back to Bacalar Lagoon, or up Jade Channel to the magnificent Rio Hondo. After a day spent exploring these truly remarkable landscapes, return to the resort for a relaxing massage or soothing body treatment at KI'OL Spa and unwind before dinner. Sit down to gourmet regional and international cuisine at the resort's restaurant, with a warm welcome and casual ambiance, then sip a chilled cocktail at the lobby bar as day turns to night. With its combination of luxury, comfort and service - paired with extraordinary surroundings - The Explorean Kohunlich is a vacation experience to never forget.

We enjoyed our one week stay. The activities were well planned and fun to do. The meals were excellent. The remote location meant the transportation drives took about one hour each way. Friendly helpful staff. The bicycles were well used and difficult to adjust for leg length or to shift gears.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay. The food and atmosphere were excellent, and the planned activities were well organized and enjoyable. This was a very relaxing and pleasant week, and we enjoyed meeting our fellow travelers at the resort. These included people from the U.S., Mexico, and Europe.

The Explorian Kohunlich is a special place to stay. From the excellent food, to the little caring touches like coffee and banana bread brought to you private building each morning, to the fun activities thoughtfully put together and lead by locals who know the area and its history, it was both a relaxing stay, but also one that included just the right amount of activity with the daily excursions planned and provided gratis with your stay. The chef was very good, and willing to adapt food for several different needs/preferences, and was amazing at not only very tasty food, but with a beautiful presentation. Would highly recommend the Explorean for a special getaway!

This may seem a little isolated for some, but worry not. The staff is outstanding, food is excellent, and the daily excursions are fabulous. Surprises around every corner. We only know a few words of Spanish (literally beer, bathroom, thank you, etc) and the staff made every effort to make us feel comfortable. If you enjoy quite go when schools are in and it's not holidays. This is one of the few places you can truly unplug. No TV and WiFi only in the lobby. Would absolutely go back and we are definitely going to try their other resort.
