If we are being completely honest, most of us do not associate Cancun with wealthy guests. In fact, you can book a five-star hotel here for next to nothing compared to most other places in the world. That’s why so many young people enjoying spring break like to call this their place of choice when it comes to an inexpensive beach vacation. However, even though most guests here are younger, Cancun still has plenty to offer the more sophisticated, wealthier traveler; and we have those things here.
The truly wealthy visit Cancun for this one particular reason; to visit the Leblanc Spa. Known for being the most famous spa in the area, this spa has it all. An infinity pool with the most beautiful ocean view, designed after nature’s most intricate beauty and the most luxurious amenities comparable to the most amazing spas in the world make up this amazing oasis. Be prepared to spend top dollar to experience any of the services here, and book far in advance as there is often no appointments available for weeks at a time. You’ll see only the most upscale visitors with the deepest pockets here.
If you’re exceptionally wealthy, there is no reason you should have to share the beach or public boats with others in the area. The wealthiest visitors in Cancun spend thousands of dollars every day on yacht rentals in luxury charters. These charters come with whatever you want, from a full crew to a more intimate atmosphere. The high-end food and top shelf liquor on board are standard, but almost anything can be paid for to come aboard these upscale yachts.
One of the most talented and well-known chefs in the world decided to open up a secondary restaurant in Cancun. His Spanish restaurant in San Sebastian is so well-known across the world that Martin Berasategui opened up TEMPO. The menu is perfect, reservations are difficult to obtain and it is the dining establishment of choice for those who want to see and be seen. The parking lot is filled with luxury cars, the tables with those unafraid to order the most expensive bottles on the menu, and those who sign the check without even checking it.
The best of the best don’t come to Cancun without a reservation at the Ritz. There is a myriad of other hotels in the 5-star category in Cancun, but the Ritz Carlton is the best of the best. The spa, the dining and the staff and the private casitas here are the most luxurious in the city. It’s where the wealthiest patrons stay, for a price many people cannot even hope to afford.
Private Helicopter Tours
The rich and famous will not be caught dead in a Mexican limo or a hotel bus for airport transfers. Instead, the first thing that they do when they land at the Cancun International Airport is charter a private helicopter. This does double duty as a sightseeing tour and as a transfer to their upscale hotel. The cost is astronomical, but a drop in the bucket to those who use it on a regular basis.
