My GF and I are planning our first trip to Mexico this June/July. We are in our 20's. We recently traveled to Negril, JA and absolutely loved it, but would like to try something new. Have been doing a lot of research and have can't seem to make up my mind!
So, here's the question: Riviera Maya, or Riviera Nayarit? We are going to stay at an AI, but don't want to be tied to the compound and plan on venturing out to explore the areas - we like cool, neat towns with good restaurants and nightlife. Additionally, we like nice beaches and want a good crowd. We certainly don't want an over americanized tourist experience whatsover.
So, what does everyone think? Pros and Cons of each? Recommendations for places to stay? Weather?
Thanks for the help!
