Take a swing at one of the Caribbean’s top rated golf courses. The mix of perfectly manicured greens, fresh Caribbean air, a couple margaritas and perhaps even a few mulligans is a recipe for a fun filled day under the Mexican sun! Here are 6 courses with breathtaking views and a tee time waiting for you.
Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club
Designed by P.B. Dye, this top rated course is located just south of Cancun between Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen. Considered one of Dye’s toughest designs – the surprisingly hilly Mayan jungle terrain stands out from its surrounding landscapes. The narrow fairways, deep sand bunkers and cleverly domed greens made this 18-hole competition course the perfect host for the World Amateur Team Championships in 2016.

Address: Carretera Chetumal-Cancun Km.309, Playa Paraiso, Quintana Roo 77710
Gran Coyote Golf Riviera Maya
The Gran Coyote Golf Riviera Maya (formerly known as Grand Coral Riviera Maya) is situated just minutes from Playa del Carmen. This very eco-friendly course was designed by three-time major champion, Nick Price. His vision of creating a unique, challenging course that snakes through dense Mayan jungle while keeping environmental impact to a minimum came to life in 2011. Just steps away from the beachfront, golfers can also enjoy some epic views and sometimes the added challenge of some tricky winds!
