All-Inclusive Four-Star Resort Steps from Beach in Riviera Maya
You’re never short of choices at Grand Riviera Princess—follow its network of footpaths and bridges past stucco buildings, palms, and lagoons, and you can jump into any of 12 swimming pools (8 for adults, 4 for children). One pool even hosts scuba lessons. And with the all-inclusive plan, you’ll have free rein at two buffets and seven restaurants, with cuisine ranging from Italian to traditional Swiss and authentic Mexican.
Come nightfall, there is live entertainment at the onsite Princess Theater, and you can go dancing at the disco lounge. You can sip mojitos, margaritas, and other tropical libations at the resort’s nine bars, which include a handful of swim-up bars and a 24-hour sports bar.
Each air-conditioned junior suite and deluxe junior suite comes with a balcony or terrace, a 26-inch TV, and a minibar that’s restocked daily with water, soft drinks, and beer.
Mexico's Riviera Maya: Rich with History and Tropical Calm
Just south of Cancún, the Riviera Maya is a nearly 80-mile stretch of Caribbean coastline fronted by towns rich in Mexican culture. For some of the area’s best beaches, clubs, and snorkeling reefs, head to the rapidly growing city of Playa del Carmen. Farther south, Tulum sits on a perch of rocky bluffs and is better known for ancient ruins, including temples and a cliff-side castle. The inhabitants of Tulum—which means "walled" in the aboriginal language—first erected the city's outer fortress to protect themselves from belligerent invaders. Today, the wall guards the archeological zone, beginning with an entryway of two corbel arches and a limestone house built over an underwater cave.
Swimming in the secret caves isn’t allowed, but a scenic drive south of Playa del Carmen brings you to the Yucatán Peninsula's legendary limestone cenotes, freshwater sinkholes created by an underground river system. At the Cenote Cristalino, you can jump from terraced outcroppings into an exposed pool or go snorkeling in underwater caves. You can also watch locals expertly flip, dive, and synchronously cannonball into the clear water at this popular weekend hangout.
