Where to Eat

Salon Catherwood - Serving buffet lunches daily, this restaurant is popular with guests and visiting tour groups alike. It features a palapa-covered main dining room, cooled by ceiling fans, and an open-air terrace, where guests dine in the shade of large sun umbrellas. The food ranges from local Mayan dishes to traditional Mexican cuisine to international standards. The décor features handpainted artwork and tropical plants.

Specialties - Open for lunch and dinner, this restaurant has tables in the air-conditioned dining room or outdoors, in a shaded courtyard. The wooden tables have white linen tablecloths and glowing candles in the evenings. In addition to Mexican and international dishes, the cuisine is primarily Mayan.

The Lobby Bar - The Lobby Bar is a popular meeting spot in the evenings and is the first sign of modern civilization when guests return from a tour of the ruins. With a view of the ancient observatory, the Lobby Bar has high leather chairs ringing the bar and features various types of tropical drinks and tequilas.


Traditional Yucatan dances are performed during lunch service at Salon Catherwood, or a trio of minstrels may stroll the grounds at night to serenade guests with traditional love songs. Guests can also opt for cooking clases to learn more about Mayan cuisine or a visit through the replica Mayan Observatory.
