You know like hotel, rooms and lobbies, and so they got to see the specimens themselves and they got to see how often it happens so not just once or twice, but they got to see it and then.

"SPA was awesome. Yes yes the food was not as good as maybe. The breakfast was fantastic but not not as variety of options as about settled but the decent. Yeah it was decent and then is it easily eurostars that where they had the wave pool as well it was kind of yes the night exactly that plays actually again another huge huge resort a lots of amenities in the in the middle of it. There was this big wave pool where it actually create a way for you tons of different pools around lots of great activities. Lots of families with kids. So if you're traveling with kids great place to go this place I yeah. I think we had a little bit of trouble sometimes. Getting the chair was pretty cried. Internet again though. If you can travel low season you won't have problem. I'm probably we have been choosing to travel when kids off out of school so we tend to. Hopefully that'll change soon But yeah so we have to fight but then for chairs beach chairs but they had great activities archery archery. That's Ri- H.. And everything that's on the beach and there's also. was there a diving. Like a die shop because you go scuba diving. Yeah I didn't go so the diving was fun. Yeah driving was great. Yeah I'll take it into scuba diving with your dad is an adventure rancher in and of itself L. A.. We'll get into that a little bit. Yeah nonetheless so the bureau star really kind of cool again foodwise. I remember the breakfast being really good Other restaurants for you run of the mill stuff again. A couple of dollars goes a long long way to get in some good to kill and getting the bartenders attenders to kind of pony up. I remember our room was nice again. Had One of those Jacuzzi tubs in it was a multi layer really really nicely NBA decorated grew amenities have jungle like cook. Some mosquitoes at this place right. So bring mosquito component or stand water right but how was the beach. Beach was okay. It was okay. It wasn't the reef. Pools were huge. There was a lot of their ears the way polls in and all that stuff so the options were good. You're so again good. Spa Far right and activities gray nightly they have dances and you and the vendors come. There are certain nights that the in a central area area there's open market vendors comes then. My mom had a blast shopping. That's right that's right so so the local merchants would come and present their stuff and and you can haggle and do stuff. They also had to Keila vendors coming in as well and you could do a sample. Some of the different Tequila and things like that so really really well done. In terms of the activities I thought the overall activities that the star was top notch. Maybe that was a bit of overcompensation on that front so that they didn't focus says much on the food but overall the food was fine. The amenities were wonderful. Location was great Just overall really really good family friendly resort right. Yes so this one is good. Good recent moving onto 'cause mel go to Cancun Rivera. Maya when you get down about half like down south there's a Erico plan for your where there is a ferry that you can get on. Oh you can fly to call. Smell US running. Yeah which caused the mail has one of the natural. The protected reefs Chonkin up correct and for those who are scuba divers snuggle lovers. You're going to have amazing time so you you should at least plan a- few days right if you could you can even go there for a day trip. I think the first trip that we were we were there to Rivera Maya. We only took a day trip. We very across in. Yeah aided the hard rock cafe or whatever yeah we also chose on the separate per trip to stay the entire week your clothes smell and so yes we did twice more on the budget was ill Cohen. Newell Beach Beach Resort. The service was gray but the food was so so but it's she waited on a natural shore with I think frontier the sparkling Caribbean Sea. Of course yes a nice view and if I if memory serves me there was a little jetty that went out into the training. They were creating artificial reef. There's well so there was plenty of fish. There was something to see. Wasn't Theo I mean obviously is the big reefs. We're going but at least in front of the hotel. The beach was okay and there was a bit of reef and a lot of fish around so it was kind of cool so the one that I really liked in the place that we stayed is called. Cosmo Palace yes. It's not. She traded on the Sandy beach new actually on the rocky almost like a cliff right. But it's got this like is Jerry where you can just jump off of. There's a little jetty a little a a protected reef around as well at the that is specific to the palace. And so yeah you can hop off there. You can walk down the steps that go in towards the protected area so it's really nice to your point. It's not a beach so if you're looking for sand sand is more inlet doesn't drop you off right at the beach. It's it's a rocky area with a ref- right out underneath you. So if you like snorkeling in snorkeling is your thing snorkeling in the ocean looking at fish and stuff. The Palace was great because there was a little bit of a reef right there in front. I dare rate it's gotTa Enron Jacuzzi in yours racist right. Yeah it had to two pools. If I remember was like I was a kids pool or was for adult too but maybe three corner a tiny any little kiddy pool there was off to the side and then kids club was great. I remember drinks. Were good the food it was decent. It's not a huge nights likely resorts a your selections are a little limited but the food quality was really good and it. Is this the one that we actually go out and their their restaurants around. That's correct up towards downtown Coatesville exactly and then again once you're there you should definitely go on a chunk or NAHB home. We did the diving and snorkeling. And we'll get to the the next episode as well so let's activities to do on Cozumel in most of them do involve the water. Although there is a Mayan ruin that's John Cozumel as well that we went to talk about that in the next episode. Yeah so this episode just wanted to kind of go through different types of resorts right. It's all inclusive inclusive. But you can do airbnb of course in a place like automobile. We haven't done it. You ran a whole entire house right. And it's Ocean Front Ron and then you can hire shed. That sounds fantastic so many options but when kids were younger something easy. It's all inclusive. You don't need to move around. Put the kids in the car and it looked for restaurants every night or you can cook probably but that's not something that I want to do while I'm on the clean up or anything like on. It's something easy. One Stop Shop. Everything is included from activities two drinks to food to write accommodation. The hotel room tips in itself. If vacation is important and you want to maximize your time you. You don't want to think about or have to go to different restaurants or think about how. What are we going to do tonight? The inclusive options are really really convenient. Yes you're you're in a in a resort. They get tons of things to do tons of things to see. There's other people that you can talk to get to know your kids have kids clubs. There's there's shows that go on. All the time on is all sorts of different amenities any got all the alcohol that you could possibly want all the food at any time. There's always snacks Galore so even if you missed out on breakfast you wanted to sleep in a little bit. Don't worry about it because it's cards coming out or their snacks going on at the other restaurants that you can sit down and some of the restaurants as well as shell so convenient so one thing sky Kinda Wanna mention at the end was that I think. Sometimes I felt that the all inclusive people just talk negatively The food is bad and Blah Blah Blah. At least that's my experience there so many depends on what you're looking for if you want a quiet environment good food like we keep saying you know. There's so many different ways short joy and so Graham Vela's revere Amaya was one of the things things it's more on the higher end. You can go budget you can go high in. I think there's just the sometimes I fell. Like you know just conclusive get bad. Get a bad rap. Yeah Yeah I get you to your point. I think it all depends on what it is that you're looking for. Set your expectations expectations stations. And you're not going to be disappointed if you're looking for something that's central. That's the lot of activity nearby and don't expect the quality of the food to be that great because there's other choices around and it's going to track you if you're in someplace you want to be a little bit more secluded. You want to have a little bit more of a quiet time. Expect the food there to be a little bit better because that's the whole point. They're trying to keep you there. They don't want you going off anywhere and there's all sorts of things in between. Yeah so I think the point here is just to do your. You'll research yup. Yup exactly you know just to make sure that's the right fit for you what you're looking for then. I think you have fantastic time. You can't go wrong. Examina- feel feel like tropics for some people from east coast particularly. You know they have easier access absolutely. It's a good easy location to visit. And so yes Hopefully this taste of kind of the inclusive thing for us. This was going to Cancun was our first experience in an all inclusive and quite quite honestly. It's something that we continually experiment with in explore because we love the concept. It's just there's something convenient about that and we talked about Turksancacoes correct options locations different. She's just the level of service and long as you get the expectations. Hey look for the right budget for you as well because there's different classes depending on what your budget is so. Hopefully that idea definitely visit Cancun. It is an amazing amazing place. This is just on the accommodations next. We're GONNA get into the activities and there are a ton if you like archaeological places if you like jungle. Uncle teams ruined animals. If you like water there is so much so much to do so much to see. If you like shopping my goodness you can spend days going from Playa Carmen to Cancun Cozumel to different places where you can go shopping and haggling. And it's so much to do we're going to get into it next so we liked displaced will do share with us though because there are tons of all inclusive that. They're the ones that you've tried and you loved. Please do share your experience experience. You'll recommendations through our website.

"You forget shampoo conditioner aspirin and little some Over then it's all inclusive sign on if you need the snacks but yeah you can still get chips in railroad grand you want but so it was easy access. There's a lot of shopping opping your malls around and embarks if you don't want to just a stay at the hotel right and restaurants around and so ooh it's UK hop in and out the resort and it might be fun. Yeah in his long as you know you have your band on. You're able to get in and out of the too easy and there's transport Galore all all over Cancun all over the the hotel zone if you will. It'll take you two different bars. Different restaurants can take you downtown. Cancun you can do some shopping. It's pretty accessible and it will take you on tours. You can arrange that to go to different places like kitchen or shell how or wherever it is that you may WanNa go. Oh pretty convenient. The difference being those hotels zone a hotel whatever the hell they call it there. It's very crowded. There's a louder people that stay. There is gorgeous beaches. Lots of amenities was very crowded. So again depending on what you're looking for if you will more quiet relaxing kind nine of yes. There is a higher in resort even within the Strip but in general in my opinion you should go south. South even to loom Akamot Arkham. Oh Nice you can even rent a house so again. If if you WANNA party your first trip to this area by Mexico go to Cancun hotels own. You can't go wrong it's party it's happening. It's there's all sorts of stuff discos Galore. There's restaurants Galore this even if you're not gonNA do an all inclusive you know. There's plenty of stuff to do. We recommend the inclusive. Because it just takes the the out of the hassle. Thank you you know to your point. You don't have to think about what restaurants to go to or do I need to make reservations. You will need to. It makes them reservations in different different. Plays absolutely for the inclusive resorts. But it's so convenient when it's right there you can plan your entire stay at one day. You don't have to think think about anything. You just go show up eat. Drink be merry. Have a great time right so this resort which we really liked in this hotel zone that we stayed. It's GonNa Dreams Cancun so let's start with that it will now now. It's Hyatt and pros and cons cons. I don't mean to start off with the negative. The poor small they changed it but One complain that I had was that pool was very small and I think they do that on purpose. Because they're on the edge. Each peninsula blinked two or three different beaches at connect the property on either side of it and plus they have the dolphin thing too so I think they kind of scaled down the pool for all the other things that they have absolutely right so only one cons for me. I mean calling one income. Yeah and then the rest are pros so you already mentioned there dolphins so we win there with our kids and then one sometime. I think we've been took a parent's you're celebrating their milestone birthday as well and so this place the resort sort. I'm sure the highest still does it to the activities the quality of activities that they organized daily I leave interest was fantastic. They had this like costume shows and in dinner and Dan just amusing out on the beach so much fun just so so much to Donald Right. It's always right and in good Mexican food and ocean right in front of you and then in the morning. So dolphins winds yes. Yeah what's really cool. I mean there's there's like two towers to the higher now it's called the what is it called a Hyatt Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah crab. Ah Ziva Cancun. That's what it is so there's two towers one is a large one. It's on the southern side and then there's another one that's Kinda sloped it's right in the middle and and if you're fortunate enough and you stay on that particular building it's the smaller of the two stay on the ground floor. You'll get greeted every morning there so I don't know what they're saying eh but the dog and.

Well it's chilly enough for me. It's been rainy and zipped zip into the fifties and I know for those people like you're from Chicago originally right this. This weather's nice. It's comfortable but can be initially for some P wigner I know but so we think about we tend to think about Nice in hot. What whether Bac Asians so we tend to well when we were when our kids are younger? MHM we used to take a lot of all inclusive trips to Mexico. The Maya revere aside what. What is that Caribbean Carribean side of Mexico? And so today we wanted to do an episode on this but we're going to highlight all the resorts that the we been in many of them because these along time ago so names have channeled. Come on that's true but the some of the names have changed and and whatnot but we wanted to highlight the ones that we've stayed and we light right there so many to choose from home alert. Oh I think when you just do a quick Google search like a top all inclusive resorts in Cancun Vera. Maya which is a southern part of the the whole Cancun right but depending on what you're looking for whether you're looking for adults only or a family resort or you're looking for places with reefs fron like look we tend to do. I think depending on what you're looking for right. I think I just can't say okay. These these are the top ten that we think it's really based on your personal preference exist so we go through the ones that we've stayed and so these are fact-based based on recommendations and then yeah so we like we'll give you a little bit of a firsthand experience if you will in terms of where we stayed changing the names. Of course. Julio is you know things happen down in Mexico ownership changes on on different resorts. We'll make sure that we give you the right information where they are but for those of you who are new to Mexico in new to to travelling in that area the Yucatan Peninsula is eastern Mexico. It's about as far east. You can get in Mexico in his a nice. Little peninsula was part of the Mayan culture. Predating the European settlers in history. Incredible history it is very tropical. Very warm mm-hmm. It's a forested area but not forced in terms of like you know pine trees and stuff. I mean it's it's like a mangrove forest. I'm Super Super Super Humid. Some people say it's too humid summertime and I I love it right up against the Caribbean Sea there. So it's absolutely gorgeous oranges year round and because of its location and because of you know the the serenity of the sea and everything it's a perfect location for for hotels and resorts it's gorgeous beaches. Is it got great. world-class reefs tons and tons of stuff to do and see amazing. And so we're going to be focused on focusing on on this particular episode is to your point area we're GonNa talk about some of the resorts that we stayed. I give you a taste rate. Kinda what to expect it some of these resorts right and then I think for the next episode. We can dive into activities as their male so many you can visit the Mayan Ruins in on the more on the historical side of the attractions. There or it could be diving being it could be mainly beaches or even more. Yeah so shopping around in Cancun in Plano Carmen. A place like that. So there's a bevy of activity so what we wanted to focus in on his. Okay you're you're choosing to go to Mexico you can go to the Yucatan stained Cancun ching-kuo stay around Cancun. We'll give you an idea what to expect in those different areas and so many places that we've stayed at so we I think briefly we can break the areas down to three areas Cancun which is on north side of the Yucatan Peninsula and then Revere Maya which is to the Entire area south of Cancun the Yucatan and also cozumel we have to talk yes which island coastal player that Carmen. They're easy transportation Predator Carmen. Yeah the ferry right there. It's worth mentioning so I think we can just focus on those three areas and and so how do we get there. What's The for us from the West Coast easiest way to get down? There is lying to Cancun Cancun international airport. That's just outside of Cancun city itself. That's a little bit south of the city and it takes about twenty minutes. I think by transport to get into Cancun proper. Yeah and get around the hotel area. There's there's a nice little strip off exactly. There's a little strip of beach the lagoon there as well. The Hotel Telstra is on the outside of the goon facing the sea and from the airport. Like I said it's about a twenty minute route. Twenty five minute drive. Depending on how many flights are arriving at the same time in Cancun is an international airport accessible by most major carriers so for us from San Francisco Airport. There's nonstop on united so we tend to take bat a lot. Yup Pretty much all on the united right so far yes great experience. We've had really really good experience flying in and out of there We had on occasion. There was one occasion when we had our kids with us. We had to stay an extra night. I know twist arms. It's a rough thing to do because we had a planet had some some plain trouble. I don't know if you remember that we were flying out of Cancun. One night in our flight got canceled because there was some issue she with the plane or they didn't have pilot or something like that. Yes memories I lost a bunch of memories childbirth. Well anyway but nonetheless usually we have had very little problems getting in and out of Cancun's usually very on time and even cozumel if you're going to be going to Cozumel Cozumel has an international airport is well that's right. It is accessible by some major carriers to. We've flown united in there. I think we've had to do layovers though in like Houston or yes I Texas a Houston. Yeah I think it was. Houston I think it was a lot of options from Houston from the East Coast. It's easy destination very easy. Does nations very accessible. You can get there and it's straightforward right so things have changed who obey right from the we also should talk about when we got the very first longtime ago. Mine Chase all Kinda besieged before. Children exactly Tom Yum area and I. We Love the tropics and we love the water as we've talked about numerous times in the podcast and so we're always looking for places to go. Oh that kind of caters towards the ocean and caters towards kind of those aquatic adventures in an all inclusive is just so easy about the ban. I don't know if they make you wear the band's nowadays yeah maybe they still do but everything is including even gratuities it one price upfront. And you get your room all your food and all your drinks drinks you shoot taken a few libations now and then it's a nice this thing did not have to worry about and all the activities right recognised daily in coining as we found out kids. This loves okay. UNDISCUSSED my mind including the kids clubs. Serve you're going to be traveling with kids whether they're young kids. Teenagers is so oh yeah even pre kids we we had fun there are adults only resorts and then but even when you start having kids we did all inclusive -clusive trips a lot when the kids were younger because again is just so easy right. You don't need a new pack. The kids back in the car. Rei find a restaurant and the mealtime in an old whatever. The kids club is included. All the restaurants options there variety righty variety of options. Usually at each resort and activities. I included and kids all welcome absolutely nice pools. Also that's a good point. Kids are welcome at certain resorts. Though there are all there's some restrictions that are adults only in there are some family all inclusive and we'll kind of break them down for you here's rain and then some of the restaurants also adults only then if that's the case then you can just leave. The kids at the kids club works out so it's very easy. Eight to travel with family. Small kids children so we really like it we. We haven't done it. You know we. Should we talk about going back there. Yeah you're right we should definitely take a take a trip back down there. It's been couple years definitely. It's been a long time. Yeah so anyway. It's not that it's not an interesting place. Just there's so many places we've been going to so I think you're right. It's it's about time we hit on back down there. We talked about it so anyway. So let's dive writing gene so maybe starting off with Where we first visit it which no longer exist list? Blue Bay resort and Marina. I wonder if that's the blue big grin as Miranda no chain. It doesn't look like it doesn't it doesn't doesn't blue bag. Grandma's Morillas down in the Mayan Riviera. So it south of the Cancun area and when we stayed there we were right in north of the Strip hotel strip. Okay so never mind in. There's no point in talking about the resources. Sorry about that but Yeah it's I also wanted to mention that this resort. We first win as a graduation present from my grandpa that it can't be relatively inexpensive to go to Cancun yes again so for those people who adjust out of college. I just want to have a quick getaway. Something easy fun place I used to go. Cancun is also pretty. It's a party town. Well a lot of drinking going on and a lot of and I think that's where most people's perception is of Cancun. Spring Break College kids going down there getting drunk doing weird things you know having a crazy inexpensive so easy trip for that reason also and and I think one of the reason because it's definitely cheaper than Hawaii depending on how hi you do yes. There is a very high end you know. I don't resort area but Yeah you can choose different number of stars Ray. The quality quality wise at each hotel service or the food selections or whether it has spa or no spell. What not basically in Cancun on the hotel zone there? A lot of The accommodations ranges from a budget too high in career. So there are a lot of choices and again you can also go if you stay in Cancun especially the Strip area. We've stayed there. I think the place was called back then. Dreams Kan coon yes row. It's changed to higher ed but it had easy access to like a target like Store where you can buy toiletries if.

"Now me Joe Thomas thirty four years old if I was eating McDonalds and Burger King at the White House. However, twenty one twenty year old me knowing that I would have unlimited Burger King McDonald's or Taco Bell would have been really really happy camper. That would have been my dreams area. When I was in college was unlimited buffet style fast food. You know, what I thought you were going to say when you said you were driving. I thought you were going to say when you travel because this is true of me when I went out of the country and had McDonalds McDonalds is even better in different countries. I don't know what it was. I went to Cancun, and we had McDonalds, and I was like, oh my gosh. Like, I loved it. For whatever reason. Mcdonald's is more fresh in Mexico to the point. This is like when I first went to Mexico, I was in high school, and then me and my wife went to Kabul like within the last year, and I left the hotel and walked in Kabo downtown like a thirty minute walk fifteen minutes. Fifteen minutes back just to get the McDonald's in Mexico because the burgers were so fresh everything that I thought it would be when I was Tokyo I went to. So right before my first daughter was born, my wife, and I decided this is going to be our last real chance to go travel. So we did a three week Asian vacation. We went to Tokyo, Hong Kong Thailand and Cambodia it was really fun. But when we were in Tokyo, I still wasn't ended like eating fish three meals a day because over there it was like breakfast. Oh, it's raw fish. It's raw clams, and then lunch thing dinners anything so one afternoon, we were traveling around the city, and I was like, oh, there's a McDonald's. Let's go get a burger, and I went in there and no shit in Tokyo. You can get sushi at McDonalds now, I didn't do it. I was a little bit nervous. But you can get like raw tuna at McDonald's. But I did you are right about this. I did go for I think I went with a quarter Pounder because that's my go-to, and it was way better than the quarter pounders in the United States. And my theory was this. It was overseas. There's far fewer McDonald's, but it holds a lot more prestige because. It's like oh American McDonald's. Wow. This must be the great American restaurant that they wanted to bring to us. And so I think the people that worked there probably take more pride in being that. Oh, we're the only McDonald's the American restaurant in Tokyo. And so they probably get people that take more pride in their job. They get fresher ingredients because they're like the only one and they're probably buying instead of from like the balk warehouse. Mcdonalds a distributor in Wisconsin. They're getting it from like the local butcher who's making their McDonald's hamburgers. What did.
