Every year our beaches host an amazing spectacle as hundreds of female sea turtles return to nest. The resort takes part in several initiatives to support this endangered species. We invite guests to join us in the release of baby turtles and participate in this incredible experience in nature and preservation.


We always throw a big fiesta on the 4th of July in honor of our northern neighbors! The celebration includes a cookout on the beach, tropical drinks and live music. After a fun-filled day under the sun, guests enjoy a beautiful fireworks display on the beach!


Join us as we raise our margaritas and shout Viva Mexico! Every year on September 16th, we celebrate Mexico’s independence from colonial rule with a beach party, live music, dancers and a special Mexican fiesta!


Come to your home away from home for a wonderful and stress-free Thanksgiving holiday. Our chefs prepare a decadent turkey dinner complete with sides and pies, which guests can enjoy at a restaurant or catered in their suite. You will be thankful to be at The Grand Mayan!


Start your year off right with New Year’s at The Grand Mayan! Our New Year’s parties are always unforgettable evenings filled with entertainment, dancing, champagne, fireworks and fun with friends and loved ones. Happy New Year!


Enjoy a wonderful evening of Mexican performances, sip traditional drinks and indulge in an authentic Mexican buffet. You’ll witness the “Voladores de Papantla” who launch themselves from the top of a pole 150 feet in the air. Fireworks light up the sky and bring the amazing night to a perfect close.
