If you’d like to spend a night under the stars, but don’t want to give up luxe resort amenities, try glamping, a luxury alternative to camping, where guests enjoy all the benefits of running water, electricity and sometimes even Wi-Fi. Mexico’s varying terrain, wildlife and beautiful beaches makes it a haven for exploring the great outdoors. We’ve put together a list of the best glamping spots in Mexico to check out.
Stay Between the Sea and Vineyards at CuatroCuatros
Stay in one of the 19 “cabañas” nestled among vineyards by the ocean make up the accommodations at CuatroCuatros, located just nine miles north of Ensenada, Mexico in the Salsipuedes Bay. With all the services of a luxury hotel, like air conditioning in the private tents, minibars, fireplaces and more, you won’t feel like you’re “roughing it” here. Book an activity through the resort, including wine tasting, ziplining, horse riding on the beach, whale watching and exploring the nearby town’s restaurants and culture.
Five-star Glamping at Cangrejo Y Toro
A group of individual open-air casitas mingle together among tropical gardens at Cangrejo y Toro, a luxury resort on seven acres of beautiful oceanfront property. A stunning blend of contemporary design and traditional architecture runs throughout the property, which does not skimp on luxe details including hot tubs, soaking pools and a lush poolside lounge deck.
Glamping on a Budget at Akumal Natura’s Bungalows
The little town of Akumal, Mexico is a waterside haven about a two-hour drive from the Cancun airport, and an even shorter drive to Tulum. Akumal Natura is a collection of tented thatch-roofed bungalows. Each comes with one or two king beds and private restrooms with showers. Wi-Fi and tons of rustic glam community amenities make this spot a sure bet for a fun and affordable option. Take a dip in the cenote located on the jungle-like property, visit the private animal rescue or take advantage of the free bike rental and ride 10 minutes to the beach.
