Bella Travel Planning Toes in the Sand

We all want a great deal—no matter what our income demographic is…..Value is king these days.  The Riviera Maya offers such a value for travelers seeking to put their toes in the sand, perhaps do a bit of sightseeing, and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  I would like to suggest that value is more than simply price—value is getting the most luxurious experience for your hard-earned money.  When you return from your vacation “Wowed” and ready to plan your return, you know that you have gotten the best value.

Conde Nast Traveler has announced their Top 30 Resorts in Cancun and the Yucatan.  These resorts have a significant “Wow Factor.”  These resorts are listed in ranking order from the very best.  Conde Nast’s score rating is next to the name.  These resorts are definitely ones to put on your list of vacation options.
