Playa Del Carmen
Fairmont Mayakoba cultivates rare "Melipona" bees which produce a type of honey that's known for its medicinal purposes. The bees are native to the Yucatan and are stingless. In addition to incorporating the honey in recipes, it is also being used in treatments at the Willow Stream Spa.
About 5,000 Melipona bees living in 1 beehive produce approximately 2 pounds of honey per year. The resort will be adding a second hive in the near future.
