The Riu Yucatan or Riu Playacar if you want beachfront, or the Riu Tequila in non-beachfront is ok.

Are you a beach person or a pool person? If you are a beach person you are going to be disappointed at the RIUs. You may want to check into the Iberostar Lindo. When we were there two years ago there were a TON of teens and it is a gorgeous resort with a good beach and awesome pools plus a teen disco. It is about 20 minutes from the airport so it is not as close to town as the RIUs.

I was considering playacar. Is there many teens at RPRM? Lokks great for me, but wondering if there would be enough for the teens.

The Riu Palace resort cater more to adults, there will more teens at the other Riu's. And the beach has recovered check the review of the Yucatan and the photos that have been posted at this link

Or the Riu Playacar at this link

lavender, the Yucatan would be better for your teens.

Playacar is quieter and more adults.

An idea would be to stay at the Riu Palace Mexico for the upscale food and rooms and spend the days at the beach of the other Riu resorts which are right next door. If you stay at the Riu Palace Mexico you can visit any of the other Riu's. Both of the Riu Palace's cater to an older crowd, they do have kids but no as many as the other riu resorts.
