Swinging a golf club is one of the most emblematic sports of the Riviera Maya, and Playa del Carmen takes center stage as it is surrounded by golf clubs, many by the most famous course designers.
The golf courses of the Riviera Maya are in the midst of the Mayan jungle, refreshed by the sea breezes. There are many challenging golf courses in Mexicio, and here there is Camaleón, where Greg Norman created a challenge for every player. The par 3 15th faces right into the Caribbean sea. This signature hole has a degree of difficulty that can only be experienced when you tee up facing into the wind.
Here, the greens are mostly across streams, with vistas of jungle and mangroves. The humid climate and the intense sun can be alleviated with a lemonade, a margarita, a snack, or a full meal at the club house. This is a true golfing paradise whose fine service will amaze you.
There are over seven courses, and the most highly recommended for visitors from Playa del Carmen in terms of distance and accessibility are the Iberostar Golf Club, Playa Paraiso, Playacar Golf Club, and Grupo Mayan Golf Riviera Maya.
