Playa del Carmen or Cabo San Lucas in January?

Jump to last reply

We are a family of four with two college aged kids. We want a great beach with easy access bars by the beach with some off resort activities to break up the sun bathing. We are going in January. Going all-inclusive, so I don't have to be the budget grinch the whole time.

My questions:

1) Playa del Carmen or Cabo? Cabo beaches look great!
2) Any reviews of the Iberostar Tucan or Iberostar Quetzal? Good reviews on Expedia. How are their beaches - hard to tell from pics. (I can see there are better beaches at other resorts but most AI's max out at 3 per room and we are 4)
3) Reviews mentioned terrible mosquitos in the open air restaurants, but they were there in June. Is there a downtime for mosquitos there?
4) Know of any brand new resorts in PDC? Some reviews mentioned a lot of banging and hammering next to them at one of the Iberostar resorts - thought it was a new one being built.
5) Is Xel-Ha worth a day trip or is there a better cenote to go to?

Thank you!!
