I can’t believe it’s been over a month since we were in Mexico. Time flys… Last month I posted an overview of the trip and today I’m breaking down the
We stayed at The Grand Mayan, Riviera Maya located 30 minutes south of Cancun and 15 minutes north or Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The property is massive and consists of five “sub”resorts, three pools and seven restaurants. Oh and a golf course. (warning: this post contains a lot of pictures)
Here’s the entrance to “our” lobby.
There were tons of thatch roofs.

They even have flamingos and alligators on the property.
At the end of the beach there was this little white house for sale. I think we might need to buy it 🙂
Typically when I travel I’m not a mega resort type of gal. I prefer a cute little place with big flavor, but we were able to book the hotel within a month before we left and during high season.
My over all impression/takeaway: The resort was amazing and the staff was lovely, but it was a bit more remote and we didn’t experience the local culture as much as we would have liked.
