On Tuesday you read about the nuts and bolts of our recent trip to Mexico so today I thought I’d like to focus on the fun stuff! While I’ve visited both Cozumel and Playa del Carmen numerous times as one-day cruise ship stops, this was my first time spending the night. While Playa is fun, it’s also overrun with touts, tourists and all the gimmicky go-alongs. I found Cozumel much more laid back and appealing. Below are the activity highlights from our Cozumel stay.
Natty Gal is back this week after a delightful stay at two properties on Mexico’s Riviera Maya. The bulk of our week was spent at El Presidente on Cozumel and, boy, is this property over the top! We’re not ones to repeat travel experiences but I’m already planning to go back. For our last day, we traveled back to Playa del Carmen and stayed at the Grand Hyatt. Being back on the mainland made it much less stressful to catch our late AM flight from Cancun the next day. Below is a brief review of the properties and the overview of how we used points to fund the trip.
