A couple of questions about CAT...

For those who have stayed there before I have a couple of questions....

1. They mention that you can go out on a catamaran excursion from the hotel for free, you just have to sign up. Is that true? If so, how long is the catamaran excursion and do they provide you with drinks onboard?

2. Is there an advantage to staying on the Maya side or the Yucatan side of the resort?

3. What type of beer do they serve at CAT?

Thanks for any info that you can give.

Go fighting Illini, they do have a catamaran "ride", not an excursion. It only lasts about 30 minutes and is designed for 2 adults or one adult and 2 kids. They take you out in the bay in front of the hotel. It's pretty fun. The Riviera Maya side is usually (in our experience) more upbeat and busier. The rooms seem to be more recently remodeled and we like it better because it's closer to the action. They have Sol beer at the resort and some of the bars have both light and dark. Hope this helps, have fun

Hi There -

The Maya and Yucatan side are pretty much identical in rooms. On the Maya side it is closer to restaurants, spa, etc. Some of the lower rooms have nice private garden views, but one side is next to a street. I would give them a preference of what you are looking for (i.e. quiet, close to pools, etc.)

And I'll answer #3! Dos Equis is the beer on tap at the Cat.

Hmmm...BigDave says it is "Sol", so I may be mistaken (but I could have SWORN they told us it was Dos Equis). Oh well....I gues it is either one or the other, LOL!

Yep, Dos Equis on tap, Sol in the fridges in upgraded rooms.

BTW, Gregorio informed me that both were brewed by the same company.

(Mexican Beer Trivia for the day....lol)

Oh, & the “Catamarans” are small “Hobie Cat” type of boats.... You can see them here;
