Riu Palace Las Americas Resort Review (Post Renovation)

Ever since the renovations were completed several months ago at Riu Palace Las Americas I have been chomping at the bit to go back and check out what had been added, painted, replaced, removed, and relocated–I wanted to see whether the beautiful resort I had visited several years ago was still basically the same or in what ways it was now different.  Since I had seen the transformations done to Riu Cancun, Riu Playacar, Riu Mexico, and Riu Yucatan, I had some initial trepidation that my beautiful Las Americas with its Mediterranean charm had perhaps turned into a modern day glitzy Vegas palace.

Better Get Used to Snorkeling Without Fins in Akumal Bay–At Least For Now

While the snorkeling tours in Akumal Bay continue to be halted by PROFEPA, the newest info suggests that individual snorkelers are being strongly discouraged from wearing fins as well.  This is being done in order to help prevent snorkelers from standing on the coral (which kills the coral over time) as they adjust their masks, etc.  For the least amount of disruption to your snorkeling experience, be prepared to snorkel in front of the Secrets resort instead of further north, and please respect the buoys/markers for now.

Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf and Spa Resort Review

I just returned from another trip to Cancun and stayed at the beautiful Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf and Spa Resort during Feb. 2017.  I stayed in an upgraded Preferred Club Jr. Suite Ocean View, room #7408.  I had pre-requested a pool view in addition to the ocean view since I did not want to look out at the side of the resort and this wish was definitely met. This was the view from my balcony with its own comfortable day bed and Jacuzzi tub.

Matching Airlines With Cancun Terminals–How to Meet Up With Fellow Travelers

My latest trip to Cancun (which was Feb./March 2017) involved something I’d never done before–meeting up with another traveler coming into Cancun from a different city and different airline.  Since all my trips to Cancun had wound up in the same place and the same terminal (by the Air Margaritaville palapa hut which is now outside Terminal 3), I assumed my fellow traveler would wind up in the same place.  WRONG.
