I am just beginning the honeymoon search and would love some advice on resorts in the riveria maya. I think that is where we are currently leaning towards. Mexico is cheap to get to and they are supposed to have nice beaches. I also want to do excursions, horseback riding, ziplining, etc and i have heard that area is good for them. Where is everyone staying or have already stayed? Please let me know your opinions of the resorts. I think most resorts will fit into our budget, we just won’t be getting the best rooms. Also we want all inclusive. Thanks!
Oh and i will be going Oct 24th 2010 Thanks!

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.

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!
