  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the fabulous Ritz-Carlton Cancun, and had amazing time with the kids and the hubby, and these memories will last forever. We had fun in the sun on the beach, and we even went on a crazy zipline adventure out in the wilderness. The only complaint I can think of is that I wish we never had to leave.

  • I always enjoy anytime I get to travel abroad, and after all of my adventures, I can’t believe that I had never been to Cancun before. I’ve been to Jamaica and several islands in the Bahamas, but I’ve got to say that the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen were on the sandy shores of Cancun. Not only are the beaches great, but the rich history of the Mayan civilization at Chichen Itza is just breathtaking. I can honestly say I can’t wait to comeback. Maybe next time I’ll swim with the whale sharks.

  • We really had a great time in Cancun this last time. Took the wife and kids on our annual vacation and we landed on Cancun (the kids didn’t get a vote). I had a blast golfing on the Jack Nicklaus designed Moon Palace Golf Course, and the wife enjoyed the romantic dinner cruise we spent together. As to not leave out the kiddos we all had fun at the Wet’n Wild water park and swimming with the dolphins.
