Definitely go out to the Mayan ruins. It’s amazing to see and one place lets you actually climb a pyramid.

ooh which resort?! i know playa quite  well, have been there many times and its where im getting married!

im sure you want to find a balance between chilling at hotel and activities, so out of the ruins chichen itza (with the big pyramids)is definitely the best. its an all day tour though. tulum is like mini ruins, nice but your wouldnt choose it over chichen itza.snorkelling tours are great too

xcaret is a great place to visit. if you want to pick up souvenirs then 5th avenue has lots of shops.a little bit of bargaining works, but not too much as there are lots of other tourists to buy their things

do NOT worry about being there.its a great place in mexico.i live up in north mexico nr the border (the dodgy dangerous part) and its where my mexican fi takes me for a nice safe vacation!

if your fi loves cars, theres a race track in cancun called exotic rides where he can drive a ferrari or lamborghini round a track. its my wedding present to fi so though id mention it haha, about 350 dollars

we’re going to ocean coral & turquesa for our honeymoon in july!! we LOVE the area- i’ve been to several resorts in playa del carmen and have never had a bad time. my biggest tips: go to xel-ha!! it’s awesome. also, the ruins of course. bring serious extra strength bug spray. the mosquitos are brutal at least in may and june when i have gone. have fun!!!
