Planning a trip in the very near future


Posted by Rebecca.Dillard on March 17, 2009

Hey all,

I'm planning a trip soon to Mexico and wanted to hear any recommendations on the BEST place to visit for cycling and a little bit of laying on the beach!

I really enjoyed seeing sites that dealt with Mayan culture, which were accessible from Cancun. I'm not really sure how to advise you on biking, but I'd just read through different accommodation entries set in some of the major tourist cities to find good stretches of beach. Where swimming is possible, most nice hotels are overlooking the ocean.... Reading journals might give you some good ideas anyway. There are also some "off the beaten path" entries if that's more your cup of tea.

Thanks for sharing a useful piece of advice..........I am also thinking about visiting Cancun and nearabout places to discover the splendor of Mayan and Aztec architecture........

Don't forget your face mask!

Are you sure this is a good plan with the swine flu problem at the moment? It sounds like a lot of businesses are shut down and public transport being restricted.

Hi! I recommend you visit Xel-Ha at Riviera Maya, they have a long road trhough the jungle for cycling. Besides its and excelent place for visiting cenotes, mayan architecture, and swimming with dolphins.

You can also visit Xcaret. its mostly the same

Kelpy is right on. You'll love this part of Mexico. The last time we went we stayed in Playa Del Carmen which I thought was nicer than Cancun. The beach was terrific as of course was the service. Playa is a fun town and easy trip to Cozumel.
