These have to be my favorite vacations ever. This is the first time that the reality is better than the pictures. I couldn't believe my eyes, the greens and blues, it was just breathtaking! This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed, disconnected time, do yourself a favor and stay away from the WiFi and discover that you don't... More

In a word: magical. We so enjoyed our week at The Explorean, which was somewhat difficult to access but well worth it. Logistics: We flew into Cancun, rented a car, spent some time in Tulum, and then drove refreshed to The Explorean. The entire journey of 400 kilometers between the Cancun Airport and the resort took about 5 hours. It’s... More

Perhaps simple luxury is an oxymoron, but that's how my husband and I felt about this (our first) all-inclusive hotel. The rooms and common spaces are gorgeous, the service and food mostly outstanding (especially loved Edgar at the restaurant and Enoc on the trips), but you won't find room service, televisions, in-room wifi, or even alarm clocks. Which was more... More

As has been previously stated by numerous reviews, this location is fairly remote. That being said, the overall package of food, activities, clean rooms, and friendly staff made this one of my favorite vacations I have ever been on. The food is excellent, the activities well planned with attentive guides, and the rooms are kept nearly spotless. We rented a... More

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is super nice, very well maintained awesome service, clean.....If you go in low season (as we did) there is only one activity (rappelling, kayaking, trips to pyramids...) per day, if you go in high season there is about three, you get to choose the ones you prefer. We were unlucky with the... More

Much has been said about this resort on this site, so reading through should give you a good idea of what to expect. I found it interesting that the people who gave it 1 star said the same things as the people who gave it 4 stars! Both point out that it’s quiet, remote, and isolated. So, it is important... More

The Explorean is a lovely all inclusive resort located in the jungle of the southern Yucatan peninsula. Lots of extended families from Europe and Mexico were there during the December break. Food is good and local. All inclusive rate includes alcoholic drinks and daily excursions. We had a private bungelow which was quiet (except for birds and monkies) and roomy.... More

Location in the Mexican-jungle, the staff, the tranquil lodges, sweet guide Daniel, the Mexican red wine etc are GREAT!! Everything is included, even the excursions. The Maya-ruins are about 2 km from the Explorean. Indeed leave small kids at home! The stillness is one of the charms! We had a great time...met some nice people :)
