When to go. Peak season stretches from around Dec. 20 until after Easter week, with a slight lull between New Year’s and Presidents’ Day weekend before spring break brings the crowds roaring in for March and April. This is the dry season, when humidity is lowest and daytime temperatures hover in the low to mid-80s. Some nights might even have you reaching for a light jacket.

Mexico is a FAB place to visit and travel to.  Been going every year for 30 years!  Never had any issues or bad experiences.  But of course stay vigilant and travel with others!

 

Playa del carmen is my choice.  40 minutes south of Cancun, taxi to.  Many all inclusive places to stay.  There's a budget for everyone! And you need to check out Calle 5.  It's 5th Avenue here!  Shops, restaurants and bars, walk along the street where there's no cars....a lovely place!  Our first visit we stayed in this town and at Hotel Lunata.  Right on Calle 5.  Walk to everything.  Check them out!

 

Just off the north coast of Cancun is  Isla Mujeres.  Sweet little island that is NOW booming, ferry over from Cancun for the day.  Rent a golf cart and drive the island and explore or take a boze cruise for the day on a catamaran...fun!!!!

 

Cozumel, a 40 minute ferry ride from Playa Del Carmen.  Get the first ferry out, rent a car, drive this tiny island, stop at all of the beaches and shacks for food and drinks, drink only bottled water here, drop off the rental and walk the towns square, (Sunday nights in all of the squares families come out to dance and socialize.  Grab dinner at a Mom & Pop place, wonderful food.  Not all food in Mexico are mexican dishes that's a myth.  I've had some of the best dishes at the all inclusive restaurants.  No worries about water in any of these places! Go shopping after dinner and catch the last ferry back to Playa Del Carmen.

 

We generally stay at the Palace Resorts there's many to choose from throughout Mexico. Or Zotery, and this year we're going west of Cancun to check out the newest resorts on the peninsula of Costa Mujeres.

 

Travel, explore and enjoy life!

My daughter has traveled there but Mexico is starting to become a dangerous place, especially for people from the U.S.. If you travel there, stay in the enclaves that are well protected, don't independently travel to places known to have issues.
