Par excellence doesn’t do this 6,800-yard, par-72 dream course justice. Yet another bit of carte blanche that is Unlimited-Luxury®, is the chance to tee off at the Playa Paraíso Golf Club, a P.B. Dye — world renowned golf course architect – gem. And he did it right, blending part Mayan jungle, part Caribbean sea with deftly-placed bunkers and pristine greens. A championship course, Playa Paraíso has hosted the Canadian Tour Riviera Maya Open and is the annual destination for the PGA Tour Monday Qualifier.

Enjoy one complimentary round of greens fees per person, per day through December 23, 2011. Head over and discover a lighted driving rage; pro shop with club and shoe rental, his-and-hers locker rooms, an on-site restaurant, and food and drink served while you play. readers anointed it the number 28 attraction out of 102 in Cancun, along with 5 of 6 stars.
