My husband and I are going to Mexico Nov. 2-7 and have reservations at Riu Palace Las Americas in Cancun. We have had many people tell us that we should be staying in Playa Del Carmen instead. They say that it is more of a tropical setting in Playa than Cancun.
We are looking to relax on the beach and maybe do some walking around in town. We would also like to view some ruins while in Mexico.
Should we keep our reservations in Cancun and just take the bus to Playa or should we switch to a hotel there? The hotels available in Playa for our switch would be: The Reef Playacar, Viva Windham, Allegra Playacar, Hacienda Resort, Riu Lapita
