Colleen’s RIU Palace Mexico – Part 2

Our hotel is in the Playacar area that is about 30 mins from Cancun. We have stayed in this area before and we always love it. It is more like staying in a nice neighbourhood instead of being off the main highway. When we walk out of our hotel it’s like walking on a street at home. Every night we are able to go for a walk. There are always a lot of people out and about and there is a small shopping plaza about 2 minute walk from our hotel so you can pretty well get anything you need.

The best part about it is that you are just a 20 minute walk from Playa Del Carman so you can go into town whenever you like and to take a taxi back is 90 Pesos so about 6.00. There are also lots of bikes available if you prefer not to walk into town and a bike stand just as you enter Playa Del Carman. The area has lots of different hotels to choose from.  They also have a couple of golf courses in the area that we walk past everyday including the Hard Rock Golf Club. We love that we can leave our property without having to take a cab.

RIU Palace Mexico Beach

We have arrived in Cancun and we are staying at the RIU Palace Mexico in Playacar. This is a really great hotel and I love our room.

It is on a stunning white sand beach with enough palm trees for everyone. The best part is that there is free WiFi throughout the resort so you can bring your music with you everywhere.  No more sitting in the lobby to access the Internet! Because we are staying at the RIU Palace we are able to go to any of the other 6 RIU in Playacar so we have been visiting quite a few for drinks and to eat. You couldn’t ask for any more.
