I am looking to go to Mexico next year but not sure where to go- Cancun, Playa del carmen or riveria maya.. i want somewhere lively with enough bars and restaurants etc, but not somewhere that is going to be rowdy....can anyone recommend an area which would be like this or just recommend which is the better area of the 3?

Also, fellow Brit's where are the bargains for hotels/ deals to Mexico?

Hi there I would say Playa del carmen.Its a great towm with alot to do.But I will tell you most of the resorts in the Riveria maya have lots of bar and resturants right at the resort.This is a newer area so the resorts are wonderful and the beaches are white sand and carribean water.Here are a few great ones I have been to.

Iberostar Lindo/maya

Grand Pallidum Resorts

Barcelo tropical/colonial/palace

Catalonia riveria

Catalonia royal Tulum

you can also try the Ocean coral I hear is good.Hope this has helped some.
