We actually used my family’s timeshare at the Mayan Palace in the Riviera Maya – it is perfectly secluded and serene, yet a 15-min. short drive (or bus ride) to Playa Del Carmen. Playa is a cute town to go for a day trip, shopping, etc. You can also catch the ferry from there to Cozumel.

The Mayan Palace has a virtually endless pool, so it is never crowded. It also has pick-ups for excursions – I highly recommend Chichen Itza! Beautifully breathtaking, if you love history and mayan ruins.

Happy planning!

I just booked my honeymoon in April to Secrets Resort in Silversands, which is in Cancun.  I’m going for 7 days and including airfare is costing us $2700.  I’m going to pay $100 for each of us to go on an excursion to zipline, dune buggy and swim in cenote.  I really wanted to go horseback riding too but I my brother said to make sure you are able to swim in the underwater caves (cenote).  This excusion company offers ziplining and horseback riding but no swin in the cenote.  I thought about and figured I would rather want to swin in the cenote instead.  I can go horseback riding in the states.  Plus, this horsback riding is just a course through the jungle.  I wanted to be able to go into the ocean with the horse.

I’m also signing up the Darling Husband to go swimming with the sharks for $100 for both of us. Not bad!

Oh, Secrets-Silversands is an adult only all inclusive and relatively new resort.  It opened in 2008.

We’re going in February and going to stay in a little B&B in Tulum.  All-inclusive doesn’t really make sense for us right now considering I can’t drink and probably won’t be partaking in much more than sunning on the beach and walking around the ruins!

I was in the Mayan Riveria next January and stayed at the Bahia Principe Tulum. It’s a HUGE resort, great food, all inclusive and tons of activities. There are quite a few families there though but they do have an adults only area.

It’s a four star I think and not too badly priced!
