Puerto Aventurtas, Mexico

Vamos a Mexico! We finally booked our Mexican adventure last night. After scouring the internet for over a month we came to a decision based on cost and location. The Dreams Resort in Puerto Aventurtas. Puerto Aventurtas is located south of Playa del Carmen and north of Tulum on the Riviera Maya. It's a great location, looks beautiful (in pictures) and fit both our requirements. I had wanted to stay in Tulum but the 2 star hotels there were the same cost as a 4 star in Puerto Aventurtas, and the food is included in the cost in Puerto Aventurtas. I also wanted to be near the various archaeological sites, Chichen Itza and the cenotes (freshwater sink holes sacred to the Mayans) so we could take quick day trips with our rental car. John got his resort on the beach and a free round of golf at a Trent Jones course, which makes him very happy (and me). It's not down and dirty Mexico but it's a nice balance for the both of us. Plus we only have a week and don't want to spend all our time on a bus. Can't wait to relax on the balcony sipping a margarita, and then have a little adventure and climb the stairs at Chichen Itza. Its going to be amazing!
