Riu Palace Peninsula Cancun - Hotel Review

Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula Review: Luxury and Ease in Cancun

Note: Riu Hotels provided my stay, however all words and photos are mine.
Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula - Cancun Resort Travel I was lucky enough to add a day at the beginning and end of my recent trip to Tulum to visit Cancun for the first time - and two Riu resorts: The Riu Palace Peninsula and the Riu Palace Las Americas, which I will cover in another post. I know - it's crazy that we often visit Mexico and I have never been to this hub, right? What I discovered is how EASY it is from Denver. I got early morning direct flights to Cancun, a quick shuttle ride and I was on the beach by mid-afternoon. I'll be honest, Cancun has always intimidated me because of its "party" reputation. We, of course, like to have fun and go out a lot ... but we aren't interested in an insanely wild location (usually, ha). Maybe during Spring Break Cancun is a bit different, but I found the Riu hotels we visited to be exactly what I was looking for. Luxury for adults-only, on the beach, with good food and amenities - plus a nice, friendly atmosphere. Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula - Cancun Resort Travel

Tulum Mexico Hotel – La Zebra: Luxury in the Heat

I just returned from Mexico and it's exactly what I needed. Rest, relaxation, sun, great food, drink and, most importantly, friends. The lovely Andrea was about to turn 40 years old and had a terrific idea. "How about I gather as many gals as possible from around the world to a beautiful beach?" I had been to Tulum several times before and it's one of my favorite places in the world - and Andrea is one of my favorite people in the world - so, of course, the answer was a resounding yes. Lucky for us, Andrea did the legwork for the trip and found our hotel in Mexico and took care of the logistics. We stayed at the gorgeous La Zebra, about 20 minutes from the ruins. It's a small luxury hotel and restaurant right on the beach, where rooms have splash pools and beautiful views. (I spent most of the day alternating between the pool and the ocean ... my idea of heaven.)
