Hotel Riviera Maya
Welcome to UNICO 20°87°! VACAYA makes history as this 5-star resort’s first LGBT event! Set on the stunning white beaches of Riviera Maya, UNICO 20°87° immerses you in the culture of the region, from the locally-inflected cocktails and cuisines to the art in the rooms. Three unique pools and a holistic spa and wellness center drive home a sense of relaxed luxury, while exciting VACAYA pop-up events insert a touch of spontaneity into the experience.

UNICO 20°87°, now one of The Leading Hotels of the World, was born out of a desire to create an entirely new category of all-inclusive – one defined by relaxed luxury and cultural immersion.

At La Escondida, you can experience a true sense of escape, as it becomes clothing optional for our week here at the resort. The water temperature in this pool is a bit more refreshing. It also features a hydro pool. Restaurant 20.87 is located just next door.
No reservation required for Mi Carisa, Cueva Siete, or Mura House (except for the teppanyaki tables), so come whenever and eat with whomever you’d like. The Palmera Lounge, with nightly VACAYA entertainment, and the La V Nightclub are located nearby.
Located not too far from the lobby, VACAYA’s signature entertainment will perform here nightly. Occasionally, though, we’ll move the festivities outdoors to take advantage of the warm Mexican nights. So just go with the flow as VACAYA brings you the very best of LGBT+ entertainment.
La UNICA pool is large and lively—a place to socialize and hang out with a drink or two. Its sophisticated dark blue color is sexy and warm.
Bar Balam is sure to become the heart of your VACAYA experience. It’s the perfect spot to gather with friends – either before dinner or just for a drink any time day or night. The perfectly splendid Café Inez, with a fantastic range of included specialty coffee drinks as well as sweet and savory bites, is located just off the lobby.
The 20°87° pool is the most central pool, where you can enjoy a swim-up bar and daily energetic sets from our house DJ. Its sophisticated dark blue color provides a warmer temperature on the water.
The full-service Esencia Spa caters to mind, body, and spirit through a range of luxury spa treatments, UNICO 20°87° signature treatments, and locally-inspired beauty rituals (many of them included!).
Travel writing is an art form, to be sure. Everything is always “the biggest” or “the best” or “the most beautiful” when copy writers attempt to bring a destination to life. We love our words, too, but here at VACAYA, we think pictures tell our story just a bit better. In our eyes, they’re worth a million words.

In partnership with our UNICO 20°87° colleagues, The Vacayans are ready to take your holiday to the next level. Anything you need – day or night – is fair game and we’ll do our very best to make it a reality.
Mixology is the art and study of the science of mixing beverages. It’s about analyzing flavors, aromas, textures, colors, densities, levels of alcohol volume, balance, and striving for perfect harmony in each creation. Mixologists are revered in Mexico and one of the country’s very best leads the team at UNICO 20°87°.
You’ll soon have the chance to meet Luis “The Mix” Felipe, UNICO 20°87°’s Senior Mixologist. Over the course of our week, Luis Felipe will lead hands-on classes where you can learn the fine art of drink creation and preparation. And what is Luis Felipe’s favorite drink? “My favorite cocktail is Frida, one of my first creations after joining the team. When I discovered the world of mezcal, I simply fell in love. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.”
VACAYA is pulling together the world’s greatest LGBT and straight allied entertainers to offer a stellar line-up of talent in our inaugural season. As entertainers get locked in, we’ll feature them here so you can get to know them a bit better before your trip. Stay tuned!
One of VACAYA’s main missions is to give back to the communities we visit. We view travel as a truly transformative experience. Gay travel specifically has changed the way people all over the world view our community. They have given us so much by welcoming LGBT travelers with open arms. Now, it’s our chance to give back to them through our ReachOUT program.
In a truly international effort – one affecting both Mexicans and Americans, VACAYA is partnering with local LGBT organizations in Mexico to help over 36,000 LGBT Dreamers (most of whom were born in Mexico) dealing with the current US President’s decision to rescind the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program. Many of these LGBT Dreamers were taken by their Mexican parents to the US at a very young age. Now, they face possible removal from the US and a return to Mexico, a place many of them have never known. Our efforts here are to provide support to the Yucatan-based LGBT Community Centers who are working with Mexican-born LGBT Dreamers on everything from legal counsel to preparing them for assimilation back in Mexico if required.
Stay tuned for more details on how you can contribute to the effort.
