Cancun or Playa Del Carmen for 1st time in Mexico?
I know this question has been posted before, but I am hoping to get some fresh responses by giving a little information of what we are hoping for in our vacation. We will be two families with adult children ages 17, 19, 20, & 22.
1. love to swim and snorkel in ocean with a nice beach.
2. Do not want to be at a resort with tons of little kids.
3. Do not want to be at a resort with college spring/summer flings, the big party scene.
4. Like entertainment, sports, and activity within reach.
So far, I am liking the Playacar Palace because reviews state that this resort is located on a nice beach plus I like the idea of hopping on the ferry boat as an inexpensive excursion. It also sounds great to be able to take a walk over to 5th Ave to shop or just people watch. The other family we are traveling with feels we should stay in Cancun. Do Cancun resorts have better beaches than the Playacar Palace? Are there any resorts that you can recommend in the Cancun hotel zone that would meet our desires? Any information about these two locations that would help us make a decision on location or to select a resort would be most appreciated.
