We’re only 3 days into the new year and I’ve already got the travel bug. After recent trips to Russia, Turkey, Greece and Southeast Asia, I’m itching to head south to warmer climates this winter. Mexico City has been at the top of my list for awhile and after seeing this ecological enclave in the Riviera Maya, where the beach meets the jungle, Rosewood’s Mayakobá just might have to be a necessary stopover. The secluded resort sits before the second largest coral reef in the world and all the suites feature private plunge pools.
