El Camaleon is located on site at the Fairmont Mayakoba hotel and aptly named for its diverse layout and ever-changing landscape, which bends through tropical jungles, dense mangroves and oceanfront stretches of sand with holes bordered by massive limestone canals. The indigenous and environmentally inspirited design aspects are evident from the opening fairway, by an imposing cenote, an ancient underground cavern that was unearthed during the initial stages of course construction. El Camaleon is the only course in the Riviera Maya featuring two holes just steps from the Caribbean Sea.

While each hole shines with its own particular magic, it's the par-3s that already are earning the loudest raves. Hole No. 15 will define the El Camaleon experience. At only 160 yards from the back marker the hole plays directly towards the vibrant waters of the Caribbean Sea. The large green sets the stage for a memorable shot as the nearby waves gently soothe the golfer's soul. Don't be fooled, this hole is not to be taken lightly, especially when the tropical winds pick up. Regardless of your score, the ocean view will remain with the player long after the round.
