This is part 2 of our trip to Cancun, but let’s recap part 1 first. In the first leg of our trip, we wanted to experience the local color so we stayed at a modest hotel in downtown for 3 nights. We walked around to see Mercado 28, play at Parque de la Palapas, and enjoy the local Dia de los Muertos celebration. We also went on an all day excursion to visit Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, and X’Canche Cenote. It was a ton of fun, but we were ready to hit the beach and relax after 3 busy days. In part 2, we moved to the Hyatt Ziva Cancun, a luxurious hotel in an amazing location. Frankly, it was a ridiculous upgrade.
This was our first experience with an all inclusive resort. Previously, we’ve always traveled DIY. I’d reserve a modest hotel and find interesting stuff to do.
