Cheryl’s December '09 Riviera Maya Trip

I just returned from a week at the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, and had a wonderful time!  The weather was excellent, with temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.  One of the best parts of the trip was the beautiful beach that stretched for quite a ways in either direction.  While we were there, it was windy, so we were able to have a lot of fun playing in the waves.  There is a dive shop with dive boat that leaves right from the resort for both diving and snorkeling trips.  It certainly saves time to not have to take a shuttle.  All of our meals were delicious, and there are a lot of restaurants to choose from for dinner, including Gourmet, Italian, Seafood, Asian, Mexican, Cajun, and a buffet restaurant.  They have a beautiful spa where I had a relaxing massage.  Included in the cost of the massage is the use of the spa pools and sauna and steam room for a day.  That was very enjoyable!  This is a perfect resort for families, as there are many activities for children.  It also was great for adults.  I would be happy to share my vacation memories with anyone interested in getting away from all the winter weather here in Michigan.
