          Car: Recommended

          The Tao Wellness Resort is nestled in the private 717-acre Bahia Principe 5 star resort's Residential Complex and surrounded by the world class Robert Trent Jones II 27-hole championship Riviera Maya golf course, TAO complex is an exclusive community in between Akumal and Tulum, in Mexico.

          The Mexican Caribbean offers tranquil and uncrowded beaches, a vast network of underground rivers and cenotes, the action of eco-adventure sports; proximity to many of Mexico's most significant Mayan archeological sites; as well as golf courses, spas, shopping and gourmet dining to suit every lifestyle and budget.

          The city of Tulum, just 15 minutes away, is the only known archaeological site located by the sea and visitors may enjoy visiting the well-preserved archeological Mayan heritage and nearby ecological reserves, all which provide the perfect framework to create an environment of total peace.

          The Mayan culture remains present throughout the area, in the many indigenous communities still found here. They strive to preserve their traditions, religion and social structure, although the real splendor of the ancient Mayan civilization is most evident in the numerous archaeological sites of this stunning area, such as Tulum, Cobá, Chichen Itzá, between many others. It is through the pyramids, playing fields, sculpted stone pillars, plazas and temples that some of the mysteries, still surrounding one of Mexico's most important cultures, have been partially deciphered.
