Artisanal Escape

Mexican Hand Painted art at Mahekal Beach Resort

With the Frida Kahlo Museum recently opening its second location in the world on Playa del Carmen's bustling Fifth Avenue, Mahekal Beach Resort curated an inspired experience for culturally-minded travelers looking to awaken their creative spirit. For a glimpse into the brilliant mind of one of Mexico’s most iconic artists, guests enjoy a self-guided bicycle tour of the ever-vibrant Fifth Avenue, complete with an exploration guide outlining must-see stops, ending at the Frida Kahlo Riviera Maya Museum. After an immersive look into Kahlo’s world, enthusiasts return to Mahekal to discover their artistic talents through a hands-on painting lesson at the Artisan Palapa with a local master of her craft before indulging in an interactive culinary adventure at the Mayan Culinary Casita… Mahekal has crafted an experiential “Artisanal Escape” allowing travelers to connect to the area’s history, people, and culture.
