Taninah is a unique experience!
It is nestled far enough into the jungle to feel truly "out there" and yet features a bevy of modern amenities which makes it feel much like a modern resort, without any of the polytstone decor so common to the properties along the Riviera Maya.
The lodgings are varied and comfortable and the grounds are beautiful. Though the grounds are impressive, the amenities seemingly endless, and the private grotto awe inspiring, it is the staff that puts the experience over the top. The tireless, all Mayan staff work hard to ensure each meal is prepared when you want it, how you want it, and to a consistently delicious standard. The friendly staff walks the fine line of being readily available and yet never in the way - it's an impressive balancing act indeed.
It is important for people to remember that Taninah is an authentic experience and as it's in the jungle, you are going to hear the sounds of (sometimes loud) frogs at night, and you may (depending on the weather) deal with mosquitoes. There are bugs, and though we didn't see any, there may be snakes. Taninah is safe for sure, but if you're looking for the Disney version of Mexico, this is not it, and thank goodness for that. If you're looking for a one of a kind vacation experience, then this is the place for you. The owners and creators of Taninah have given life to something truly special in the jungle of Mexico's Riviera Maya!
We look forward to coming back at some point in the future.
