I have to say that we had excellent time and package holidays have a huge advantage for me, because I am such a lazy person. We flew to Cancun with Thomson airlines and stayed in the Riviera Maya in Grand Sirenis Resort and Spa.
The advantage of a package holiday is everything is taken care of. The transfer, the food, the hotel, and what particularly worked for us was that we could book trips to visit Chitzen Itza and Coba. I have to admit that the trips were every well organised, we were supplied with plenty of refreshments and provided with professional guides who gave us plenty of information about the Mayan's and their culture.
One of our adventures was to explore the world outside our hotel. We took trips to the nearby towns such as Playa del Carmen and Tulum. The travel was very easy, we used local transport Collectivos which are small privately owned minibuses. Information about Collectivos was available in our hotel. My favourite was Tulum and its amazing beach. I could stay on that beach all day.
After visiting Tulum we decided to be more adventurous and we took trip to Cozumel on the ferry. The ferry are leaving from Playa del Carmen every hour.
The other place near to our hotel was Akumal, a small beach-front village where you can hire diving equipment and swim with turtles.
Mexico was brilliant it has tasty food, hot sunny weather and friendly people. If you are deciding to go for holiday I can recommend Mexico.
