Beachfront Bliss & Savings
Mexico's Riviera Maya is the laid-back older sister to Cancun. This region is more white-sand wonderland than wet T-shirt contest.
It's where couples, families and friends come to unwind, explore and unplug -- in an oceanfront setting where English is widely spoken and the U.S. dollar is the region's (unofficial) primary currency.
With dozens of all-inclusive resorts dotting the coastline, travelers have their pick of deals that bundle accommodations, drinks and meals into one "all in" price. Ample flight options into Cancun, the gateway to Riviera Maya, also add to the convenience.
