I really hope this isn't a stupid question since I know most people will automatically say Cabo so here's the scoop: We are planning our first trip to Mexico for the Sept/Oct period and want to make sure that we are making the right decision.
We have narrowed it down to the Westin in Cabo or Le Meridien in Cancun. The reviews for Meridien seem excellent on this site but the photos don't compare to the Westin Cabo. Has anyone been to both/either that can enlighten us?
We've obviously never been to either (1st trip to Mexico) but from what i gather it seems that Cabo is trendier and more of a desert locale while Cancun is more tropical and known for it's beaches. Fair statement?
Quick background: We're a couple in our late 20's that are looking to both relax and have a good time. Not going to necessarily party everynight but looking for some nice places to eat and some good bars/lounges to go to at night.
We're coming from NJ so the flight is longer and more expensive to Cabo (there's a connection which adds to the lengh). Is it worth the extra travel time/expense?
I guess our biggest fear is that Cancun is going to be cheesy and very overrun with chains. I posted a simliar question on the cancun forum and the majority of folks highly favored Cancun. Not trying to start any trouble :-) but thought i'd post something similiar here to get a fair balance.
Any input is greatly appreciated!!!
