I am bouncing off of another post- the post about AI's.
There were many comments from those who do not like the larger resorts. I will be honest and admit I am a relatively new traveler to Mexico (surprised I know). Last year we visited Cancun. I am glad I had the opportunity but Cancun was not our style. We visited Isla on Wednesday, and loved it so much we went back for another day.
Loved it so much still that this next trip we are staying on Isla the whole week.
We will be staying in a big ugly resort for this upcoming trip- but plan to take opportunities to explore other options for future trips.
So my question is this.
For those who do not prefer to go big resort- please share where you do like to stay. Now I understand the danger of sharing is that your secret gem that others then know about it- but if you're willing please do share.
