CANCUN, MEXICO--(Marketwired - Sep 14, 2016) - Immerse yourself in the ultimate luxury getaway this fall with a stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun, one of the most iconic luxury beach resorts along Mexico's famous Mayan coastline. Situated on more than 1,200 feet of sparkling white sands overlooking the Caribbean blue waters, the resort is the quintessential tropical oasis, offering a variety of onsite amenities and destination experiences for discerning travelers.
Of the many reasons to visit the hotel and the region, these five are especially irresistible right now:
Turtle Guardian Program
Guests visiting The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun from May through October have the chance to witness a truly endearing, awe-inspiring aspect of marine life: watching female turtles emerge from the sea as they nestle in the sand to lay their eggs. As part of this program, the eggs are moved to the hotel's "Turtle Camp" - a guarded, safe nesting area. The hotel's Turtle Guardian volunteers then assist the baby turtles by releasing them into the ocean once they are hatched. Guests are invited to partake in this unique experience by helping the resort's volunteers release the newly-born turtles as they make their way to their new home in the deep blue sea.
A sophisticated and fresh culinary experience that will give travelers the opportunity to taste their way through Mexico, all from the comfort of the resort's well-equipped Culinary Center. "The Chef's Table, Flavors of Mexico" dinners will showcase the Culinary Center's Chef Ryan Manning's modern and distinctive interpretation of many of Mexico's most emblematic dishes, with menus based on his travels throughout the country. The Culinary Center, a fully equipped kitchen with stunning ocean views, accommodates intimate groups, from couples to families to groups of up to 14 guests. Within the Culinary Center, guests can also explore other activities such as traditional cooking classes, Mexican or Italian style cooking classes for children and adults, and "Magical Flavors of Yucatan," where the chef prepares a special lunch or dinner menu emphasizing the unique attributes of Yucatecan cuisine, ingredients, and history.
MUSA - Underwater Museum
While in Cancun, guests can be enthralled by the first underwater museum in Mexico and the largest in the world. Designed by artist Jason de Caires, its motto is to foster the conservation of the largest coral reef in the Americas. With over 400 of the expected 2,000 sculptures already in place, MUSA invites colorful fishes, corals, and marine life to form around this unique art collection.
