Dominican Republic vs. Riviera Maya

Jump to last reply

My husband and I ready to try an All-Inclusive! Our budget this year is limited due to unplanned expenses at home, so we are thinking that Dominican Republic or possibly Mexico are our best bets.

We are looking at going in April/May. We'd like a beautiful beach that we can lounge at all day as well as stroll every morning. We would like to do an excursion (or two) - anything really, just something to get us off-site as we're uncertain how we'll handle a week of just relaxing! We like to snorkel. We'd like plenty of restaurant choices.

The debate between the two:
- where can we avoid the most beach vendors (my least favorite memory from previous trips to Mexico)
- where is the safest
- we do not want a party vibe (researching for best resort choice)
- is the water/beach better at one location over the other

We are leaning towards Dominican Republic (Punta Cana, Bavaro Beach), but are curious if we pick Mexico, where would you suggest? Cancun, Playa del Carmen, or elsewhere? (thinking Cozumel's beaches wouldn't be what we are looking for.)

Thanks in advance!
