Yay! After exhaustive research, my husband and I decided to celebrate our 10 years of marriage with 6 nights in Feb. at the Riu Palace Mexico.
We are not taking our 3 little boys with us and our main priority is rest and relaxation. However, I would like to plan at least one excursion, if not two. We spent most of our budget on the Palace so we probably only have around $300 for excursions so can anyone recommend what we should do with it? My husband is more adventurous than I am, but I would like to try snorkeling (I never have) and also possibly ziplines and/or cenotes. Can anyone comment on the snorkeling at our resort and what excursions are the best for the money? We've been looking at the Xcaret, Xel-Ha and Alltournative tours but we'll probably only be able to afford one of those.
Also, I'm wondering about the sun in Feb.? We're pretty fair Minnesotans, but we will visit the tanning beds before leaving to get a little "base". Of course, I'd like to return home with a gorgeous tan but don't want to get fried - will I tan if I'm coated with SPF30 all day every day?
Thanks for any and all help!
