Sometimes, especially nowadays, you want to get away from it all.

Far, far, far away...

No, even further.

For such extreme cases, we suggest a trip to a secluded, all-inclusive resort in a biosphere reserve on the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

It’s called KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, and it’s open now amidst the lush forests and wondrous lagoons of the Sian Ka’an Reserve, an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If you’re lucky enough to be one (or two) of the eighteen people to snag a reservation here, you’ll probably want to stay in one of their beachfront bungalows, mostly for the elegant, tropical décor and private butler service. That should put you in the right state of mind for a Mayan clay massage. Or a Cuban cigar from the on-site cigar bar. We’re not one to judge your states of mind.

Otherwise, when you’re not relaxing by the water, you’ll be taking tours of the local lagoons, hanging out on the rooftop lounge and, most importantly, eating and drinking.

Specifically: hefty pours of Pappy van Winkle, mezcal mint juleps and Mayan-influenced cuisine (like huitlacoche ravioli) with ingredients sourced from the chef’s nursery, either at the restaurant or the romantic location of your choice.

Also known as the beach.
