El Camaleón Golf Course at Mayakoba
From its inception, Mayakoba was conceived as a resort development like no other. The design was to follow the contours of the existing geography. to enhance, not replace, the natural environment. Architects were joined by biologists, geologists and engineers to map out a way to find separate but connected locations for the planned development. The result was a Master Planned retreat which now welcomes visitors and residents from the four corners of the Earth to a triumph of conservation.
The complex also offers a spectacular 18-hole golf course designed by renowned architect and PGA TOUR legend Greg Norman. The golf course is home to the Mayakoba Golf Classic, Mexico’s historic first-ever PGA TOUR event. Six miles of fresh water canals surrounded by exotic mangroves and birds lead to a beautiful white sand beach and to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Guests are peacefully transported in boats through the resorts contemplating a revolutionary vision of beauty and harmony.
