RESORT AND GOLF COURSES:
THE PERFECT VENUE FOR A WORLD CLASS EVENT
From its inception, Mayakoba was conceived as a resort development like no other. The design was to follow the contours of the existing geography . . . to enhance, not replace, the natural
environment. Architects were joined by biologists, geologists and engineers to map out a way to find separate but connected locations for the planned development.
The result was a Master Planned retreat which now welcomes visitors and residents from the four corners of the Earth to a triumph of conservation. Mayakoba meaning ‘village over the water’ is internationally recognized as an exclusive five-star resort community.

Vince Vaughn was interested in theater early on and grabbed a spot in a Chevy commercial. In 1988 he moved to Hollywood. He managed to hit a few spots on television, but his real goal was to make it to the big screen. He made his first credited role in the film Rudy where he met his friend Jon Favreau, who was writing a script detailing his life as an out-ofwork actor. Vince was written into Swingers by Jon to play the character of “Trent”. He signed on just as a favor to his buddy, not realizing it would be a career changing role.
Though not a commercial success, it was a critical success in which Steven Spielberg saw him and cast him in the big budget sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park. This role gave Vince the exposure he needed to become a movie star and, for the first time, choose the roles he wanted to take. A Cool, Dry Place put him as a loving father, Return to Paradise cast him as a man having to make a life or death decision to save a friend, and Clay Pigeons cast him as an interesting serial killer. Since then his roles have been primarily in comedies such as Old School, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Wedding Crashers, and Couples Retreat.
