Fiji/Tahiti vs. Mexican Rivera Maya

The resorts in the Riveria Maya in Mexico are so much cheaper than those in Tahiti/Fiji. I always had a dream of staying in an overwater bungalow in Tahiti but at a cost of $800+ a night, is it worth it compared to a $300 a night room at an all inclusive in Mexico? We also love to snorkel, and I am sure the sealife is also different between the two. Anyone been to both areas and want to give advice?

Hello sure the Maya Rivera is cheaper, but to us personally there is absolutely no comparison.The Riveria is commercialized .Good snokling . To us nothing special.Fiji and tahiti having traveled to both however are un spoiled and breathtakingly beautiful. the fishing and snorkling amazing the food amazing and reasonable ...the people beautiful.The fijians sang in the morning sang in the evening at the Sofitel Hotel Denarau Island 300.00 a night includes bottled water robes and the most amazing buffet breakfast of fresh foods Ive ever seen any where. They also had shuttle buses to other hotels and Denarau Island where we ate reasonably at night on the ocean..We did all our excursions., with Roseys Travel tours first class and good value.Tahiti we did by cruise ship also a unspoiled delight...Possibly the most beautiful islands weve ever seen.Sofitel has a wonderful location in Bora Bora. we loved Tahiti so much we are returning in January...

Posts: 129 $800 worth for an overwater bungalow in French Polynesia? ABSOLUTELY! Every penny! You don't have to stay two weeks, just treat yourself for 2-3 nights and stay in a garden bungalow for the rest of your vacation. Oh, and NO comparison with Mexican Riviera...none!

I doubt that $300 gets you an overwater bungalow on the Mayan Riviera, does it?
