The Riviera Maya has been a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, and especially from North America looking to have some fun in Spring Break. Sadly, there are so many concerns regarding if Mexico is safe to travel or not, that the influx of tourists has decreased in the last year or so.
For those lucky enough to live in the area, we are aware that this might sound quite scary… but still, the feeling around our community is that this shall pass and the government efforts to preserve the Riviera Maya as a safe area for tourists will succeed.
The 2018 Spring break is getting closer and closer and we are looking forward to seeing our dear friends and family from the US and Canada. A nice and affordable option is to get to Mexico on a cruise…directly to Cozumel.
Cozumel is a little island just off the coast of Playa del Carmen, and it is considered safe, unlike other areas in the Riviera Maya. So if you are thinking this might be an option, have a look at some of the deals we found!
