Guests have the option to reuse towels and sheets in order to conserve water and energy, and there is automatic, eco-friendly light control in public areas. Clean drinking water is enjoyed thanks to a reverse osmosis plant. Education stations are also available for guests to learn about the care of local ecosystems and wildlife.

The on-site nursery produces 90% of the plants used in local reforestation, while the 3,200 sq. ft. garden, "La Huerta del Chef", contains vegetables, herbs, corn, fruits and different types of chili peppers.

The resort incorporates fencing around nesting areas on the beach in order to protect baby sea turtles.

Ideal for families, couples, and scuba divers, Barcelo Maya Beach & Caribe is located on what is commonly considered the finest stretch of pristine beach in Riviera Maya. Stroll through the abundant, Mayan inspired grounds or dive and snorkel in the glass-like ocean, exploring the second largest barrier reef on Earth. If you prefer fresh water, there are two expansive pools, each with its own Jacuzzi to ease away your cares. This lush resort complex is conveniently close to one of the most popular tourist attractions, the 3000 year-old ruins at Tulum, the only Mayan archeological site on the Caribbean coastline.

With accommodations decorated in the purest Caribbean style, these cheerful rooms are comfortable, open, and all have a balcony or terrace overlooking verdant gardens or the azure sea. Enjoy access to international dining in sixteen restaurants including four distinct buffets, Mexican and Spanish cuisine, four beach restaurants, plus access to fourteen bars strategically located throughout the complex. You'll never be hungry because the Barcelo All-Inclusive program offers 24-hour availability of snacks, meals, and drinks.

Families can enjoy maximum freedom, choosing from among a wide range of activities for the whole tribe, including a gym, shopping, and the luxurious U-Spa. Qualified staff members organize entertaining activities for the smallest members of the family in the mini-club. Children are guided through games, competitions, drawing, handicrafts, movies, a mini-disco, mini-aerobics, and the brand-new U-Kids Spa.

By day, adults can join in a variety of sports, including tennis (day or night on floodlit courts), basketball, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, and miniature golf. At night, enjoy the vibrant entertainment at the unique live shows and then dance the night away at Jaguar's nightclub. In addition, you are free to access facilities in the pools and beach area of the Barcelo Maya Colonial & Tropical, immediately adjoining your hotel.

With something for everyone, Barcelo Maya Beach & Caribe awaits your family for the vacation of a lifetime!
