Fuel up on complimentary daily breakfast and enjoy a meal at El Manglar, the resort's restaurant that serves cuisine packed with fresh produce from their own garden. Take a beach cruiser for a spin around the property (complimentary) or practice yoga on the resort's yoga deck. Schedule a day of activities horseback riding, zip-lining, stand-up paddleboarding or surfing -- all of which can be set up through the hotel.
