Take what you think you know about Mexico, and throw it out the window. While you’re at it, throw whatever you think about all-inclusive resorts out the window, too. We’ve been obsessing over UNICO 20°87° since before it even opened. This culturally rich, properly trendy destination effortlessly sparks wanderlust, so step away from the screen, and turn towards experience. Trust us. At this modern Mexican resort that’s easier done than said. Here’s why.
Oh no. You forgot your beach hat on the counter at home. Don’t worry. Keep your cool. UNICO 20°87° has you covered. Literally. Each room comes stocked with a hand-woven beach hat by a local Mexican artisan. All the rooms and décor take colorful, inspired cues from the people, culture, style and traditions of the Riviera Maya—so you can experience the Yucatan, not some commercial catalog. Think hand-crafted accents, local art, and custom designed furniture.
Vacations are for dozing away lazy days on the beach. We’re cool with that. And so is UNICO 20°87°, but in case you’re interested in something a little less predictable, you’re in for a treat. Expect entertainment like movies around a bonfire at the beach and live pop-up art experience at the Palmera Lounge. For your boozy brunch soundtrack? A live Latin trio will know just the right notes. Un-plan your days in paradise.
Savor in good company
At one point during your evening, you’ll realize something’s missing. It’s not the hand-crafted cocktails from Bar Balam. It’s not the delectable Yucatan plates from Cueva Siete. It’s not the company. You, your partner and the bartender (read: cocktail genius) have been raving over the totally delicious, curve-ball flavor of the chile de árbol infused vodka in your drink. Then you notice the flicker of the candle, and you realize your phone’s blue glare has been perfectly absent all night—because you’re living right in the moment, just like you’re supposed to be.
