I travel to Cancun, Cozumel and/or Riviera Maya every year for the spring break to do scuba diving activities in the ocean near Cozumel and in the cenotes. Coming from Canada, it is always great to go to such places when we are still struggling with snow and cold. I’ve been doing this for 15 years and I explore a...

I must admit it was my error to book this property knowing I'm a solo traveler, but I wanted to have a one-day taster of one of the all-inclusive Mayan riviera hotels. I am really not their target audience, which seem to be mostly rich family groups. Hotel feels like a sub-standard 5*. It is 5* but a lot of...
