It’s hard to nail the vibe at Mahekal Beach Resort with just a short description. Most people would probably compare the peaceful, tropical aura to Swiss Family Robinson, but Fritz, Ernest, Jack and Franz didn’t know the joy of relaxing in a modern beachfront bungalow’s hammock after spending the day on one of Playa del Carmen’s many gorgeous beaches and before grabbing dinner at Fuego Restaurante y Cantina, where the chefs rock their guests’ worlds with creative meals like New Zealand rack of lamb and a seafood calzone baked in the “Tulum-style” wood-burning oven.
And then there are the cocktails. Mahekal Beach Resort’s bars and restaurants offer a tantalizing selection of handcrafted cocktails, from the signature Jarrito Tropical (created with fresh passion fruit and mezcal) to a Jamaican Iced Tea, which is served poolside at the Itzi Pool Bar. The wizards at Mahekal Beach Resort generously shared several cocktail recipes with us, so we are starting the party with this recipe for the Hibiscus Margarita.
It’s fun, fruity and guaranteed to magically teleport your soul to Playa Shangri La.
