Back to Cancun

A November 2007 trip to Cancun by Ride2Live

Quote: Back to Cancun after a 9 year respite. We stayed at the FAVC on the Boulevard. Had a great time spliting our vacation between touring and relaxing.
This was our first trip to the FAVC in Cancun. After making the reservations I started reading about the resort online and saw many mixed reviews - from excellent to never again.Having stayed at their resort in Cabo we expected more from the resort than what we found. But we were ultimately satisfied with our stay.At check-in we went to our room and found it facing north looking at the new concrete walls of another building and a stagnet pool of water. We asked to be moved and were quickly accomodated with an oceanview overlooking the pool area.The one-bedroom suite was very spacious and had everything we needed. The room always had a musty smell to it but that can be...Read More

Selvatica Canopy Expedition and Zip Line Tours

Attraction | "Selvatica Zip Line Adventure"

EXCELLENT!!!Having been on the Zip Line in PV we sought out a simliar tour in Cancun. The Selvatica Zip Line Adventure is well worth the trip. After a shuttle bus ride to the site, in the jungle, we were outfitted with our gear. After a short class on the do's & don'ts of zip lining we set off.Selvatica provides you with 11 zip lines as you move through the jungle.

We started with a couple of "slower" lines to get the group familiar with the technique but we quickly progessed to "FAST" lines.

Xelha and Tulum Tour

Best Of IgoUgo


We enjoyed both but I would recommend splitting them up into different trips.Xelha is a protected reserve offering snorkling, tubing and a dolphin experience. It is an All-Inclusive park that includes your snorkling gear ($20 deposit) and several restaurants where you can just sit, eat and drink if you prefer. The dolphin experience does have a charge but since we didn't have the time to do it I can't remember the cost.We had a good time however since it was a combined tour we didn't get to spend enough time at Xelha. If we had the chance to do it again we would have spent the entire day their.I'm a history buff, especially the anicient tribes of the america's. Walking...Read More
