North America overwater bungalow resorts – traditional and modern

Overwater bungalow resorts are certainly popular destinations for many travellers and holiday makers, most of which are found in Asia. However, North America overwater bungalow resorts do exist. We found 2 resorts featuring both traditional overwater bungalow villas and the more modern style overwater bungalow villas.

There are two overwater bungalow resorts in Mexico that feature bungalow villas built over the water. Hotelito Desconocido is located along the Pacific Ocean near Puerto Vallarta and the Rosewood Mayakoba Resort is located on the south east tip in the Gulf of Mexico at Playa Del Carmen.
