How to choose your perfect vacation place
Choosing the perfect area to vacation in Riviera Maya
Although Cancun is the most recognizable name among Mexico’s Caribbean vacation destinations, there are dozens of areas along the coast, each with its own atmosphere.
What are our favorite areas?
Laura says: I prefer quaint areas over the sprawling resorts. My favorite destination is Isla Mujeres. It’s a laid-back paradise where you can walk nearly anywhere in the main downtown zone, or explore the island by golf cart.
Second on my list is a tie between Puerto Morelos and Cozumel. I do love the beaches of Tulum, it’s so hard to choose!
Perry says: Although I love Isla Mujeres, I’m also a fan of Puerto Morelos and the Tulum area (we stay downtown where prices are cheaper, but it’s a long distance to the beach.).
If I’m looking for a little more excitement (especially in the evenings, when smaller cities are sleepy), I’ll choose Playa del Carmen (sometimes I can even enjoy the hussle-and-bustle of Cancun.
