Between our last blog and today, so much has happened, that it would take a book to describe, so for now some quick highlights since our official arrival on December 5, 2013, as not to bore.
We were ready to complete the purchase of Xoco's restaurant here in town, after a struggle of 3 1/2 months to get all the legal paperwork, documents, permits, licenses and more from the previous landlord, current one, previous and current ...

It seemed like he was doing us some really good deals, although as I said he was a good salesmen with the gift for talking so he could have been ripping us off, but he told us many times he liked us and we are his friends and he will give us the best deal, we were talking with him for sometime before agreeing to anything and he did drop his prices many times ...
... a pretty sight. We love our room. It's really good. There's loads of space. We can arrange our things nice and orderly and it's really cool. The man makes good towel art.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Riu Palace Riviera Maya Playa del Carmen
I stayed here for 8 nights for my 30th Birthday trip! It was a great experience, although we did end up going to the Riu Tequila after the hotel slowed down for the night! The pool was fantastic, very big, there were only a couple of times that it got crowded. It is a nice 15-20 minute walk into Playa Del Carmen (5th Avenue shopping and nightlife). The resort is in a guarded residential community with the entrance 2 minutes from 5th Avenue.
