Soliman Bay & Tankah

Soliman and Tankah are two low-density developments lining three enormous bays. Tankah, the southern-most bay, features a couple restaurants, a few dive shops, some hotels, as well as numerous seaside villas. The outstanding snorkeling is highlighted by a huge ojo de mar (eye of the sea), where a fresh water, underground river empties into the bay. A cenote, or fresh water sinkhole, can be found on the jungle side of the road opposite this formation, and should not be missed by the snorkeler or person in pursuit of a refreshing dip.

The bays of Soliman offer two types of escapes to the Riviera Maya visitor. The northern bay is home to the restaurant Oscar y Lalo, a perfect spot to spend an afternoon dining of fresh seafood, kayaking the private bay, or lounging in hammocks. Along the southern bay can be found a variety of accommodations fit for those seeking a quiet escape. Rustic palapas lit by candlelight, romantic bungalows, and luxury villas are among the choices. Take an afternoon…or a week…to soak up Soliman.
