Remember that there is Cancun and the Riviera Maya, essentially anything south of Cancun. Beautiful place to visit, with many things to do, including visits to Pyramids, snorkeling, etc.

We came back from Playa del Carmen in late May, and we had a blast. Took the biggest room in the Gran Porto Hotel, with three balconies. Paid about $400/day, but that was for EVERYTHING, including meals, most drinks, mini-bar, etc. Look forward to going back soon, since both kids keep asking 'when are we going back to Cancun?'.

Looks like you had and excellent time. I really liked staying in the Omni last year and two years ago. I see Xcaret got repaired.
Did you get to go to Da Vinci? I didn't unfortunately. grumpy

Thanks for the pictures ... looks like a nice place to visit.

Is the Omni really expensive? Is it an "all-inclusive"?

It seems that you had a great time!

My whole family lives there and it is absolutely great. Miss it so much (except for the humid hot weather).

The OMNI is not one of the newest hotels in CUN, though it is one of my favs. There is a great range of options, from the ultra-deluxe resorts to the modest downtown hotels. OMNI was for sure a great option!

Though it was a catastrophic event, Hurricane Wilma sort of cleansed Cancun both from what was getting old and bored and also from the lazy "non-grata" people (often foreigners) that look for an easy, careless life.

Great pics, Shannon! I could leave right now since I saw the huge waves and the turquoise water in the pictures.

A friend and me want to go on a one or two week holiday in October or November, we will definitely consider Cancun, the place looks great for relaxing.
