I would book when you get there, you never know what could happen when booking before you get there.

One thing to think of ......Once you get off the beach and go inland ITS HOT. Pretty hard t obeat relaxing on the beach

I would probably do 3 or 4 over 10 days and rest at the beach for the others. When we go to Cancun we always wait until we are there to book.

I so agree ~ that's what vacations are for... relax, unwind, forget about work, kids, schedules, etc.

We always get to our resort and do nothing for the first 2 full days, then discuss 'possibly' what we 'might' want to do ~ sometimes it's an excursion like shopping, the ruins, being away from the resort all day ~ but more often, it's more like back to our beach chair, having someone bring us a drink and lunch, heading to the spa for a massage, back to the room for a nap, having a glass a wine, getting ready for dinner, .... well you get the picture.

With our busy schedules at work we really don't want to do much on vacation except relax, re-group, have someone wait on us and get to know each all over again....

Whatever your decide, have a wonderful, sun-filled and relaxing vacation.

I research all of the options and choose what we want to do ahead of time. We deside when to book it after we arrive to our resort. Sometimes we don't book it at all and get our own transportation and just pay at the entrance. We try not to committ to anything, until we feel in the mood!!!!! Definately don't book from home ahead of time.

5. Re: Excursions

what type of excursions do you want

many can be done yourself

(and wait till you get there)

Going to the Ruins on an overcast cooler day is much more preferred
