Riviera Maya - 1st Timers

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites! We are experienced Caribbean island travelers but newbies to the Mayan Riviera. We have never tried all-inclusive but are looking to try one this July. We are looking for what everyone else is looking for: white sandy beach with sandy entry, great pools, kids club (we have nine year old and six year old), decent food. Our budget for a week is $4000 from Boston (airfare seems to be about $2000 without a package deal). We will mostly be at the resort but will take some excursions to ruins (Coba, Tulum) and a nature trip like Xel-ha or Akun-Chen.

Looking at places like Sandos Playacar, Riu Tequila or Riu Playacar, Iberostar del mar or Tucan. I've looked through the archives but am pretty overwhelmed. Does anyone have a favorite place they could recommend? Thanks in advance!
