Golfing in Mexican Caribbean

A Golf Vacation in Paradise

Golfers enjoy best of both worlds in Mexican Caribbean

(NC)—Imagine playing a round of golf amidst impressive Mayan ruins and beautiful tropical foliage, with the magnificent Caribbean Sea in your sites. This is what thousands of Canadian golfers' experience each year when they choose a golf vacation in the tropical paradise of the Mexican Caribbean.

As an avid golfer, Ottawa's John Hardie loathes that fateful day in autumn when he finally has to put away his trustee golf clubs for yet another frigid Canadian winter. Two years ago Hardie decided, like thousands who share his passion, to extend his golf season one more week on a tropical golf vacation with a group of his friends in Cancun.

“We chose a golf package with Real Resorts at The Royal Playa Del Carmen,” said Hardie. “It really is the best of both worlds. We had unlimited golf every day and real luxury accommodations at night with top of the line food and drinks. It's become our annual winter golf haven for my group for sure.”

In Cancun, some of the world's most renowned golf course designers have teamed up with the surrounding lush nature and created a selection of nine legendary courses. Cancun course designs have come from some of the game's greatest names, including: Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Robert Von Hagge, Isao Aoki, Greg Norman and P.B. Dye.

Golfers of every skill level enjoy championship golf courses where the greens seemingly merge into the ocean and the dramatic fairways offer challenges at every turn. In fact, golf courses in the Mexican Caribbean meet the highest standards set by professional tournaments and expert golfers. And from the pro shop to the 19th hole, you can take advantage of familiar golfing amenities such as club, shoe and cart rental, practice areas, putting greens, course assistants, and lessons or clinics from club pros.

Hotels such as Real Resorts offer golf packages with the accommodation of your choice and exclusive inclusions such as unlimited greens fees.

“You can perfect your game by day and unwind in luxury by night,” added Jeannette Vasconcelos, Marketing Manager of world-renowned Real Resorts in Cancun. “After their game, golfers return to the comfort of our resorts and pamper themselves with massages and treatments in the hotel Spa and then enjoy a superb meal in one of the hotel's award-winning a la carte restaurants.”

Whether you are a seasoned professional or just a weekend novice, the Mexican Caribbean offers an opportunity to enjoy this royal game in tropical splendor. More information on golfing in Cancun is available at
