From on-resort activities like beach volleyball, yoga, and soccer, to off-resort activities like parasailing, rock wall climbing, and beach trampoline, you’ll find a multitude of exciting beach activities to keep you having fun by the water.
Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you have to leave your fitness routine behind! In fact, the Vidanta destinations offer a variety of fun and interesting ways to incorporate exercise into your day. Choose from fitness classes like yoga, Pilates, spinning, Zumba, stretching, fitness boot camp, and cardio abs.
Nature Walks and Tours

Through the nature and botanical walks, you’ll learn about local wildlife and plants, you’ll see all of the sights with our bike tour, and the back-of-house tour offers an opportunity to see all that goes into making a perfect vacation.
Sea Turtle Release
The Vidanta beaches are home to a number of protected sea turtle species. We’ve created sea turtle sanctuaries on our beaches where biologists help protect sea turtle hatchlings. Members can attend the yearly sea turtle release and watch as the staff helps baby turtles make it safely to the water.
Many of the Vidanta destinations feature Kid’s Clubs where children (ages 5 to 12) participate in a full schedule of daily activities, including crafts, games, learning activities, themed nights, and even pool-time fun.
Poolside Classes and Activities
If your idea of a great vacation involves spending as much time by the pool as possible, then you’re in luck. You can take a variety of classes at our pools, including dance lessons, Spanish classes, napkin-folding classes, and other arts and crafts classes. You can also participate in games and activities like ping pong tournaments, bingo, Texas hold ‘em, and black jack.
Cooking and Mixology Classes

One of the most popular events for the whole family is our Movie Night. Once a week, during certain times of year, we show an assortment of family-favorite movies on a giant screen on the beach. Everyone will enjoy watching Hollywood’s biggest stars under the stars.
Great things happen when Vidanta’s gourmet restaurants highlight the cuisine and drinks that have made them so famous. Try a new dish or sample a delicious rendition of one of your favorites during such specials as Lobster Night, Peking Duck Night, Pasta Night, or Catch of the Day.
