Golfing opportunities abound at Mayakoba's signature Greg Norman, 7,000-yard, 18-hole course, El Camaleón. The championship golf course is the centerpiece of the resort enclave.

El Camaleón is named for its diverse layout and varied landscape, which bends through tropical jungles, dense mangroves and oceanfront stretches of sand with holes bordered by massive limestone canals. Indigenous and environmentally inspired design aspects are evident from the opening fairway with its imposing cenote (sinkhole), an ancient underground cavern.
While each hole shines with its own particular magic, the Par 3s have earned the most plaudits. Hole 15 defines the El Camaleón experience. At only 160 yards from the back marker, the hole plays directly toward the sparkling coast. Regardless of one's score, the ocean view remains with the player long after the round. Hole 7 also plays to the edge of the Caribbean Sea, with the sand and spray punctuating the breeze. This is a dramatic, meandering course that makes full use of its proximity to both jungle and ocean, giving players a once-in-a-lifetime golfing experience.
