Way nicer than Cancun!

At the end of my Central America trip, myself and 2 friends decided to treat ourselves to a few nights staying in an All-Inclusive hotel in Playa del Carmen, The Wyndam Viva Maya.

Not only was the hotel gorgeous and right on the beach, the resort of Playa is absolutely fab! Its a proper resort (unlike Cancun which is so spread out and a motorway going through it) and it kind of has a European feel to it. It also has a WAY better nightlife than Cancun. Great bars and clubs down by the beach. Theres also great shopping. Would definately recommend it over Cancun!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Really nice resort with a good vibe.
  • Cons:None!
  • In a nutshell:Way nicer than Cancun!
