Help My friend wants to go to Cancun again!

I am trying to talk her out of it. I did like Cancun but would rather go some place new.
She wants to go for the nightlife.
There will be at least 3-4 couples (no kids!)It is around June 1st we will be going. I was thinking Virgin Is. Jamacia, etc...
Please give me some good ideas so I can change her mind!

How about a compromise and go to the Playa Del Carmen area of Mexico? There are plenty of great AI's there and Playa is a great little town. Still has some shopping, GREAT restaurants and nightlife, but isn't as overwhelming as the Cancun strip and to me seems more "authentic"

Your also right where you can catch the ferry to go over to Cozumel (I think it was about a 20 minute ride and inexpensive).

Oh and you will still be about an hour or so out of Cancun so you can still get in there if you want.

We rented a car and driver for the night on one trip and it wasn't really any worse than paying for a cab back and forth and the driver would take us wherever we wanted to go for the 6 hours that we had reserved the service.

I love Cancun is such a beautiful place and a great place for party and also for relaxing. Try Playa del Carmen and if you still donīt want to go to Mexico try then Puerto Rico (PR) or Dominican Republic (DR). At DR you will find a lot of ALL INCLUSIVE Hotels and the service is great.

Publisher and I have a great diversity of opinion on Wyndham Sugar Bay.

He thinks it's Heaven's Gate and I think it's a Hell Hole.

Check out the hotel reviews on this property on www.tripadvisor.com under the hotel section.
