While visiting Playa a couple years ago, we witnessed the end of a Good Friday procession on Avenida Quinta (5th Ave). My daughter would like to see/participate in this from the beginning. Where and when does it start, and does it follow a prescribed route?
Hello. I will be visiting Cozumel within the next few months and want to have the right products to keep my curls tamed. When I visited Puerto Rico years back I remember the hair product I used, and that work fine here in Nebraska, felt sticky when used in the different climate. So I was wondering if there was any curly haired people out there that knew a good curl cream/hairspray (anything) that actually helped keep their curls tamed while in Cozumel and didn't get sticky?
have never been down there, and this may be a silly question (based on my research, it may well be). can I find a 2 BR villa or casita along Tulum beach for under $2000/wk (inclusive of tax) at low season? we are going in late June or July. ideally not right up at the ruins area....further south...but not as far as SIan Kaan. any help is appreciated.
have tried all the usual spots...here, T/A, VRBO, airBNB, etc. would prefer not to be on a compound of bunglaows, but that is a possibility I guess. not a house subdivided into condos either. don't need internet. don't need AC.
we are looking up Soliman way too just to be clear (more single family units there I see). Just prefer Tulum due to a bit more wave action (for my 10 YO son). and proximity to the pueblo (for my wife).
any secrets you can share???? cheers!
Is it safe to walk along the beach From Hotel Coral & Turquesa into town (puerto morelos)? I have read that it is about a 45 minute walk, I assume that it's safe along the resort areas but on google earth it looks like there is a good stretch along undeveloped areas.
Good Evening Everyone,
I'm looking to book a vacation for sometime in May of this year. I've done a ton of research and read a lot of reviews but I'm having a tough time siding with a resort. I'm traveling alone and I'm looking for a place I can go to have a good time that includes it being all inclusive and adult only.
I've looked at the Grand Oasis Viva, Temptations, and Golden Parnassus but I'm open to suggestions as well. My logic so far (based on reviews read):
Temptations - A bit pushy when it comes to check-in due to the reason of the resort trying to sell time shares.
Golden Parnassus - Has the tendency to over book guests and then push them over to the their sister resort loaded with children.
Grand Oasis Viva - Currently undergoing construction in some areas.
I know each review is just a point of view, I've traveled enough to make the best of any vacation but I wanted answers from those in the field. Any information, advice, or suggestions is very appreciated!
Does anyone know if Hidden Worlds Cenote Park in Playa del Carmen will be open the 1st week of April?
The website says they are closed for construction. I sent an email, but haven't gotten a response. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
We will be staying in Puerto Morelos for 4 days in late July. One of those days we want to do an excursion. There are 4 of us traveling ages 32 - 44. We are into history and adventure. We want to do something that is fun and we will learn something. What do you have for us????? Links or travel reviews would be appreciated.
Our family will be visiting the Playa del Carmen area during the first week of April. I'd love to hear thoughts on what people consider some must-see attractions. We like being active. Our kids are 12 & 14. Thanks!
HI everyone. I did this park many times, last was in mid-November, but each time I had to haggle for the best price and often it was downtown or the luck of bumping into someone. With a little knowledge, I got 117 pesos for an adult which is quite good. I am now bringing two kids, one of three and one of five, I gather if I don't get good bargain this can be quite expensive! What changed from last times was that although the snorkeling gear was included in the price, it was not needed, and the towels are extra even if you go all inclusive, as of last year! The buffet was a lot of food but besides the soup and tasteless guacamole and flat beer, I didn't really think it was worth the extra.
As far as this thread goes then, I am looking for where I can get a comparable price for all inclusive, bus, buffet, etc around 117 pesos and also, a base price if I do not want this.
And second, is there a bus that takes me directly to XCaret? I saw many even after hours go in and out, that would avoid us having to wait for others. Where does this bus pass? And how often? Is there a schedule is it ADO? What is the cost.
My girlfriend is getting married in Playa del Carmen in an all inclusive resort in September. I'm debating if I should take my 2 year old son with me. My gut says yes, but with the possible "water" contamination and current drug wars...am I being paranoid?
Has anyone stayed at this resort? DO they have calling cards? Normally when I travel outside the US I Just get a calling card and use the phone in the room to call home? Is this my best bet? I have an I phone and service with Verizon and I have no clue if that will work work there or how much it will cost me to call home from it! I would love to be able to face time my kids while we are gone. Thoughts? Suggestions?
We are pretty laid back and just want to hang on the beach - eat decent food and drink decent drinks. We have been to the Bahia Principe's and Iberostar's before. With the Viva Wyndham Maya being about $200 less per person we are thinking about trying it out - anyone with experience have any comments?
