Arrived Boxing Day 26th Dec for 2 week stay.
Had NYE in Riu Yucatan , Very nice no exspence sparred lobster, caviar, fillet steaks etc free Champers etc. The NYE Party was amazing was full good fireworks good after party.
2nd stay at Riu did Tequilla last time. Riu Yucatan much nicer cost bit more but well worthit.
weather was good first week . 2nd week overcast raining. not hotels fault though just unusual weather didnt spoil trip did Tulum, Chichen itza. cenotes etc day trip to Cancun had luch in Riu Cancun free as was AI. Riu Cancun cost more than Yucatan but no where near as nice glad only went there for afternoon.
Did all trips with private taxi hire much better and cheaper than thompson trips. had flexability to do what we wanted arrived before the stampedes at Chichen itza etc.
Would i go back to Riu Yucatan? deffo lovely place . mate of mine stayed in Riu Palace not next door first one that was very impressive but cost a lot more.
