Hello, I'm planning to go to either Cancun or riviera maya for 10 day beach all inclusive vacation in the second week of July. I'm in my middle 50' and travel with my husband of the same age. This is our first trip to Mexico.
We are looking for a resort with sandy, not rocky beach, with calm waters and shade (palapas) on the beach.
I heard some resorts on Riviera Maya are extremely huge requiring a lot of walking. I would not consider those as I have some feet issues. Can anyone recommend a reasonable place? What location is preferable: Cancun or Riviera Maya? If I were choosing between the Riu chains or Iberostars which one will you advise?
In the past I was in Iberostar in La Romana DR. I liked food and beach but the rooms had terrible MUSTY smell and this is why I never came back there.
I would greatly appreciate any helpful advice. Thanks a lot .Emmy
