The latest trend in luxury hotel stays is your own small private pool, so here's our choices for plunge pool suites in Mexico's terrific Riviera Maya.

Sometimes smaller than a regular swimming pool, sometimes full-size, plunge-or splash pools, as they are sometimes called, are the ultimate for relaxation and romance. Once found only in the highest-end penthouse suites, plunge pools are becoming more popular in hotels and resorts in Mexico. No need to fight the crowds for a lounger chair when you’ve got a private pool on your terrace or balcony! Take a dip together to cool off and celebrate your honeymoon or romantic vacation.
