This was an excellent trip to Cancun with my husband. The location is excellent and within walking distance to Margarietaville, Cocobongos and shopping. A short, cheap local bus ride can take you to many water activities that can be arranged at the hotel or through your travel provider. We also did a day trip to Excaret which was very interesting....
