Playa Paraiso Holidays in Mexico

Playa Paraiso is 20 minutes south of Cancun and part of the Mayan Riviera strip. Playa Paraiso is made up of a number of resorts from the hotel group Iberostar that offer family entertainment and luxurious relaxation.

A great day excursion is to the ruins of the ancient Mayan Temple at Tulum. The ruins itself are in a great walled city and are one of the best remaining examples of Mayan temples, shrines and platforms left in existence today. It is best to go early, the site opens at 8am and this way you will avoid the crowds but also the scorching midday sun. Always go with a certified guide company or group as there are many lesser companies who are more interested in your money than ensuring you enjoy your trip. Your guide will make or break your visit as without their knowledge you are simply looking at ruins.

At the resorts themselves there are a range of water activities to take part in each day. Snorkelling is extremely popular and you will quickly know why once you see the serene Caribbean Sea lapping at the white beaches the region boasts. For those a little more adventurous you can take scuba diving lessons and see what lives below the sea. Your hotel will have local information on who are the best to book with so enquire at your front desk for the best recommendation.

The hotels and resorts cater for all the evening's entertainment. Depending on what hotel you are staying at you will have a varied choice of dining and after dinner entertainment. The Iberostar resorts boast a range of top quality restaurants serving cuisine from Mexico, Italy, Brazil, Japan and many more. A useful tip is if you are staying at an all inclusive resort always ask for the premium liquor if you are ordering cocktails as often they will use a cheaper alternative.

The resorts are very child friendly but that does not mean there is a lack of bars for after the children go to bed. The lobby bars often stay open to the early hours of the morning and the restaurants all serve alcohol. Throughout the week the hotels run evening entertainments from shows to discos, although if you are looking for some serious clubbing you will find yourself wanting.

Flights for Playa Paraiso land at Cancun International Airport and from there you need to travel the remaining 50km to the resorts. Taxis can be expensive for a trip this far and a better option is to book an airport transfer. There are a number of companies who will pick you up from the airport and drop you at the hotel in an air conditioned minivan for a reasonable price. If you are planning to see the sites whilst there it is recommended you hire a car as this will be the easiest way to get around. Prices start from $55 per day although this depends on which season you are renting in and the cars can be arranged to be collected at the airport.

Playa Paraiso is a great all inclusive family holiday with plenty of entertainment on hand for the children to enjoy. The resorts all boast fantastic facilities and the beaches are a Caribbean delight.
