Another Royal Resort

Last year I noticed a day trip from the Royal Mayan to another Royal resort a short distance away. I am going back this December and was wondering if anyone has visited this site and what exactly is there to do there. Is it a timeshare presentation?

Thanks in advance!

That would be to the Royal Haciendas over in Playa Del Carmen.

There are a couple different side trips you can arrange through the resorts.

Transportation only is $15USD round trip or $8 USD one way, Monday thru Thursday. Leaves the Sands at 9:45am and the Caribbean at 10am. It leaves the haciendas at 5pm returning to the Caribbean at 6:15pm and the Sands at 6:30pm.

This is not a sales pitch, it is just dropping you off and letting you enjoy the resort and PDC for the day.

A second option is a Shop & Dine package. This one is $59USD per person with dinner or $39 without. It leaves Cancun at 5pm and leaves PDC at 9:30pm I believe this one you do not go to the resort, you are dropped at 5th Av.

For information on the Haciendas, you can check out the resorts website.

RH is a beautiful resort with a total different feel than the Cancun Royals. PDC has more of a laid back beachy town and not all the hustle n bustle of Cancun. To me it feels more like Cancun used to 15+ years ago. We've not had the opportunity to fully explore the area ... yet. : )

Thank you. We are staying at the Mayan so the shuttle form the Caribbean is convenient.

When there, I assume we can use the resort cardc for buying things.

Also is 5th avenue close enough? Would like to check out both in one day. I checked the Royal website but they don't say much about the shuttle, etc.

Thanks again!

5th avenue is a $8 to $10 taxi ride from RH. RH has free shuttle service though so if there is room and timing works, you can ride for free.
