Playa del Carmen is where it all started for The Turquoise Reef Group. Back in the early 1980's we were taking reservations via teletype machines and the small Playa del Carmen hotel we worked with was Shangri la Caribe (now Mahekal Beach Resort) and consisted of only 3 beachfront cabanas! Back then the small hotel was making 2-3 trips a day to Cancun for ice and other needed supplies.
Times have certainly changed over the years and Playa del Carmen has grown into a major tourist destination and bustling small city on the Yucatan's Caribbean coast. The number of Playa del Carmen hotels has also grown exponentially over the years but we have always remained true to our roots by selecting only the finest small hotels that offer a more authentic Mayan Mexican Caribbean experience.
While there are many different Yucatan hotels today; including many mega resorts that offer all-inclusive style vacations; they tend to be captive in nature and do little to reveal the rich beauty and culture of the region! The Turquoise Reef Group has been exploring these lands since the early 1980's and has selected what we have found to be some of the finest small Yucatan hotels. These places are not your typical mega resorts but do offer many of the same amenities and what's more, a freedom of opportunity to really explore the land and find adventure. We have grown up as a company with many of these hotels and we have formed very unique and long lasting relationships over the years.
If you are seeking a Mexico vacation that is more authentic experience and culturally rich but less captive all-inclusive you have come to the right place. Let our knowledgeable Yucatan vacation specialists design a personal magical getaway for you and your family and it is sure to be one you will never forget! There's good reason why we have so many returning guests year after year, they have discovered our shared experiences and the magic only a select group of boutique Playa del Carmen hotels can offer.

Featured Boutique Hotel
The Yucatan Peninsula is a place of rich history, natural beauty and ancient mysteries. There is so much to this area that makes it different from the rest of Mexico. Up until the 1950's the Yucatan remained relatively isolated from the rest of the country which was finally linked by rail and later a highway in the 1960's. Prior to that time the Yucatan's connection to the outside world was by sea and consisted mainly of trade with Caribbean islands, the US and Europe. In 1972 the plans of a resort community were announced centered on what is now Cancun, Mexico which has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world!
It is of course the natural beauty of this area that draws so many visitors to Yucatan; with the turquoise waters of the Caribbean to the south and the calm gulf waters to the north, it's no wonder people from all over the world flock to this tropical paradise. Nature and Mayan culture and hospitality bring people back year after year. The powder white beaches, Mayan ruins, cenotes (underground rivers) and wildlife are just a few of the highlights.
