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.

Spread over acres of lush tropical gardens, the upgraded, all-inclusive Barcelo Maya Colonial & Tropical Beach is bound to impress. With 960 rooms situated on over a mile of dazzling private beach and spectacular protected coral reef, this resort is an unparalleled exhibition of Caribbean paradise in coveted Riviera Maya.

Enjoy access to sixteen international restaurants, featuring Seafood, Asian, Mediterranean, and Italian cuisine, plus four buffets and four beach restaurants with local and specialty dishes to suit any palate. Fourteen bars throughout the complex ensure a delicious cocktail awaits you at every turn. Lounge by one of four expansive main swimming pools, or join in the daily activities and watersports.

One of the largest theaters in the Riviera Maya will present nightly live shows complete with an accompanying orchestra. The U-Spa awaits your pleasure, boasting the latest equipment and luxury treatments, with whirlpool, two saunas, and two Turkish baths to relax away your stress and rejuvenate your senses.

Families can enjoy maximum freedom, choosing from among a wide range of activities for the whole tribe, including a gym, shopping, and non-motorized watersports. 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 pool and beach area of the Barcelo Maya Beach & Caribe immediately adjoining your hotel.
