Can We All Just Say Yes To These Glass Bottom Bungalows

As fall continues to remind us why we love this season so much, let us not forget that winter is right around the corner. The snow and cold weather is sure to have you yearning for a tropical getaway. It’s never too early to start planning a winter escape. Always on the list of the top tropical destinations, Mexico should not be overlooked. Not only does this country have beautiful views and tempting cuisine, but brand new glass bottom bungalows will complete your dream vacation.

The El Dorado Maroma

When you think Mexico, popular tourist destinations like Cancun and Cozumel probably come to mind. While these places are gorgeous and have plenty to do, don’t overlook the Riviera Maya. Riviera Maya is located on Mexico’s northeastern Yucatan Peninsula. Many all-inclusive resorts call the Riviera Maya home, but only one resort, the El Dorado Maroma, boasts glass bottom bungalows.

Located specifically in Playa del Carmen, the El Dorado Maroma is meant for romantic getaways spent lying on the beach all day and retreating back to your glass bottom bungalow at night. If you’re thinking of bringing the kids along, think again, as the El Dorado Maroma is an adults-only resort. Not simply an all-inclusive resort, the El Dorado Maroma bills their experience as Gourmet Inclusive. This means more time at the resort and your glass bottom bungalow.

The Bungalows

These glass bottom bungalows at the El Dorado Maroma are actually Mexico’s first over-the-water bungalows. Also known as the Palafitos, these bungalows are brand new, as the resort only began accepting reservations in September. You’re probably wondering what the price tag per night is, right? It’s “only” $665 per night, which actually isn’t bad if you consider what you’re getting. Basically, you’ll be living in pure luxury for the duration of your stay.

Besides the Gourmet Inclusive concept mentioned earlier that includes premium drinks and high-end meals, you’ll also have your very own butler who will be happy to serve you as you relax by the beach. That’s worth the price alone! If you prefer to be more active while on vacation, the resort also has a concierge service that can refer you to local activities, water sports, and even expeditions that are sure to satisfy your sense of adventure.

There’s nothing more invigorating than an early morning swim to start your day off right. Your glass bottom bungalow has a ladder that leads directly to the ocean. No need to pack a bag and haul all of your stuff to the community pool, either. Each glass bottom bungalow has its own, private infinity pool. You could actually spend all day over the water without being on a boat thanks to the resort’s overwater restaurant and spa. Is anyone else already booking their stay?


Are these glass bottom bungalows your dream vacation?
