Cancun or Playa del Carmen?

My wife and I are planning a trip to either Cancun or Playa del Carmen and would like to know which would be the better choice, an all inclusive resort in Cancun or a regular resort in Playa del Carmen. Thanks for any information.

Cancun is big city PDC is smaller town.
Playa Car which is next door to PDC has nice AI's.
It is not easy to answer you question.

I'd say that in Cancun, you won't need an AI resort because there are so many places to eat up and down the street, but in PDC, it is much more quiet and most of the resorts are AI. My impression is that Cancun is more commericalized and partying, while PDC is more laid back.

There are many good restaurants in Playa del Carmen. I would never go all inclusive - you can easily find nice places for dinner. I don't care for Cancun much - it's very very touristy and busy. PDC has grown a lot over the last few years, but it's still a great place to holiday.

Go to www.cancun.com and then to the Feedback tab and then on to Message Boards, you will find a post under Playa Del Carmen asking this same question. It got alot of responses which may help.

I have been to Cancun definately do not do an all inclusive there, too many places to choose from, however, I was advised to do one in Playa.
