Riu Palace Mexico, Playa del Carmen
Grounds: The resort is gorgeous and kept immaculately clean. The beach is among the top 10 most beautiful I've ever seen. A big expanse of white sand. Soft ocean bottom, with a slight drop off. Plenty of lounge chairs, especially if you go out later in the …

TravelPod Member ReviewsRiu Palace Mexico Playa del Carmen
