Quote: This was the best vacation I've ever been on to date. We stayed in the Beach Palace in Cancun, Mexico.

Best Things Nearby:There is great shopping nearby. The stores and malls are within walking distance. For places that are not within walking distance, the bus is very easy to use and very inexpensive. The absolute best thing nearby is the beach!Best Things About the Resort:The beach is unsurpassed. The sand is so white and fine. The waves are perfect for swimming, body surfing, etc. The service was excellent and the employees were so friendly to our two children (ages five months and two years). The food was excellent, and again, the service was wonderful. I really enjoyed the restaurants. They were very nice and accomodating and the attitude of the employees was wonder...Read More

Scuba Cancun

Attraction | "Scuba Diving with Scuba Pro in Cozumel"

Quote:
The friendly staff helped us gear up and took us to our boat. We did a rear entry off the boat and into the beautiful water! We had amateurs with us, so we only did two shallow 45-foot dives. They were both along beautiful reefs and were current dives. Our dive master took us along the coral and pointed out several interesting items. We say many types of fish. I am determined to buy a fish guide so I can learn about what I see down in the deep blue. I do know that we saw an octopus, a moray eel, several crabs and conch shells, a couple of very large barracuda, and countless other types of beautiful fish swimming everywhere. We could see for a very long ways, as the water was clear and pristine...Read More
