Make it at Home: Mayan Coffee

There are a number of things to look forward to when you visit Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort & Spa. While we can’t forget our beautiful beaches, fabulous rooms, gourmet dining and Unlimited-Luxury© privileges, today we wanted to highlight our famous Mayan Coffee demonstration. The making of this delicious beverage is as much fun to watch as it is to drink!

Here’s the recipe if you’d like to make this tasty beverage at home.


  • 1 cup coffee
  • ½ oz Xtabentun
  • ½ oz Kalua
  • Whipped cream
  • One orange
  • Sugar


  • Moisten the edge of the cup with an orange slice and frost with sugar.
  • Carmelize the sugar over an open flame.
  • Place the Kalua and Xtabentun in a stainless steel container until hot.
  • The liquor should then be set on fire!
  • Once the flames are out, pour the coffee in the cup.
  • Fill the remaining part of the cup with whipped cream.


Tip: Pick up a bottle Xtabentun while visiting Mexico. Xtabentun is Mayan liquor made from honey that is native to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and may be difficult to track down elsewhere!

Coco Café at Dreams Riviera Cancun

Are you the type of person that likes to kick-start your day with a delicious coffee? Just because you’re on vacation, doesn’t mean you should have to give up your usual routine! At Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa, we are proud to offer a gourmet coffee shop for our guests to enjoy as part of our Unlimited-Luxury® privileges.

Coco Café is located just outside the lobby and rivals any Starbucks back in the U.S. Coco Café offers premium coffee drinks, pastries and snacks for our guests to enjoy anytime of day. It’s a great place to stop for a delicious coffee in the morning or a quick bite to eat on the way to the pool or beach in the afternoon.

We highly recommend trying our Carmel Frappuccino, Iced Mocha Latte or perhaps a coffee with Baileys. Whatever you try, it’s sure to be delicious!
