Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Joy and I took a wonderful vacation to the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in June. I absolutely loved the lagoon setting. Joy did not, saying it was not a real beach. I think the sandy shore with chairs and gently lapping waves qualifies. I also loved the schools of fish, some a foot long or more, which would swim around your legs in the lagoon.
We took a bus excursion to the ruins of Tulum. The tour was interesting enough, but rather crowded. Iguanas were everywhere, showing no fear of the tourists. The cliff side ocean setting really stands out on one side of the complex, but the other quickly fades to jungle.
