maybe 25 kilometers (20 minutes by taxi) - under 300 pesos

If you plan to visit each other, then you (they) will have to pay a day pass pp (60$ and above pp ) at the resort

Better still, find a town inbetween or nearby

Lots of great beach clubs in Playa, Puerto Aventuras

Thank you for the info.

I heard I could take the local bus and there is a bus station at Grand Pallidum. Would you suggest that???

It's $60 for a Riu pass for the day???

Thanks!!!!

local buses (large vans) are called Colectivos where the price is 30-35 pesos each way pp and they stop anywhere by the hwy

see http://www.travelyucatan.com/collectivo.php

there is no bus station at Palladium rather a stop where colectivos and taxis gather

Problem: Riu is not near the hwy so a long walk in

Day pass for the RIUis (I believe $100 pp) - Palladium is cheaper at 60-65$

I agree with Van - suggest maybe meeting in Playa del Carmen (5 minutes via taxi from the Riu) 25 minutes via colectivo from the Palladium for lunch or drinks or if they'd like to visit the Palladium they can purchase an all day pass which includes use of all 4 resorts (not the Royal), all food in the buffets and drinks. Evening passes are a little more $.
