Iberostar Tucan is a unique all-inclusive resort with palapa rooftops and native animals on site. The resort is about 45 minutes drive from the airport in Playa Del Carmen. The distance is worth it. The beach is stunning. You can book a day trip to Tulum, which is about 45-1hr away. You can also walk about 30min to go shopping at the market on 5th Ave.
The service at Iberostar Tucan was the best I've ever received at an AI. The staff is lovely and helpful. The activities staff keep the vibe fun and exciting. I'd recommend beach Zumba, the magic carpet and tennis. Food is typical AI fare. They have different restaurants you can make reservations at, but we actually liked the dinner buffet better than the restaurants. They also have an ice-cream stand on the beach. As far as water sports, they have parasailing and jetskis for hire. There are free snorkels, kayaks and Hobie Cats (but you have to know how to use them or else $ for instruction).
The least impressive thing about Iberostar Tucan was our room. It was very no-frills and buggy (as we were on the 1st floor). But they restock the mini-fridge regularly and have decent offerings on the TV.
All in all the trip was great. We'd be happy to return and miss it already.
