Sue and Gary just returned from our 5th visit to the Iberostar Paraiso Grand Resort in Riviera Maya and were very happy to discover that the quality has not changed since previous visits. In fact, everything may have gotten even better. This upscale adults only, all inclusive beach resort offers some of the BEST FOOD and service we have ever experienced at any all inclusive resort in the Caribbean or Mexico. The employees are very friendly and you can sense that they are happy working at the Iberostar.
With all the constant media coverage about crime and violence in Mexico, sadly, tourism has been down. I can honestly say that we felt safe, secure and heard or saw nothing that indicated unsafe conditions for tourists. The entire Cancun, Riviera Maya, Tulum area are safe and have had no incidents of drug related violence as they have in the border cities. We commented that we felt safer in Mexico than in some Pa cities.
Many asked us if we were crazy going to Mexico in July. Crazy like a fox! It was 85, sunny and breezy on the ocean while 99 and humid in York!
With so many choices in resorts, we will definitely be back to the Riviera Maya in the very near future.
