Its easily a 4 or 4 1/2 star hotel. My husband and I frequently travel around Christmas/New Year’s and our typical vacation choice is to go to an Adults Only All – Inclusive resort. The Grand Mayan is just one of four resorts in the entire Vidanta complex. It is not a cozy resort in that everything is very spread out.
Playa Del Carmen is in the Rivera Maya . It is sorta in the center of it and is south of Cancun. Riviera Maya is an area that runs roughly from Cancun to the north of the Yucatan Penninsula through Tulum (a city known for it’s Mayan Ruins as well as vacation resorts) and Punta Allen, to the south.
While Playa del Carmen is, on the whole, quite safe , there still could be a risk to your safety . Do not leave your food and drink unattended. Drink spiking in bars and restaurants can and does occur, so it is best to keep an eye on your drink (especially) at all times when you are at a bar.
Little did we know we HAD to join their exchange co, Vidanta, which cost $400 /year, unless you give them another $3600 to bring that down to $99/year.

The Riviera Maya is one of the top destinations in the world for beaches. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, you can find beaches with restaurants, music, and cocktails where you can kick back sunbathe, and enjoy life. There are even pristine beaches where you can still swim alongside sea turtles.
If you go to Cancun for vacation you will mainly stay at a large all inclusive resort. You will spend most of your vacation there. In Playa Del Carmen you have more options for staying. Playa opens more opportunity for exploration and doing more things than just staying at a resort.
Tulum is more the destination of choice for those looking for an off-the-beaten-path, back-to-nature adventure where everything is much more rustic, small-scale, and low-key than in Playa del Carmen . Playa del Carmen is the better choice for those looking for a little more action and modern accommodation than in Tulum .
Well, it is a tough decision. However, I prefer the more quiet and relaxed environment of the Riviera Maya than I do Cancun . Cancun can be hectic, more people, more traffic, & more of a “city” feel. But at the same time, it has all the conveniences of a city, such as, restaurants, bars, & shopping.
Due to Cancun’s limited access – one entrance, one exit – along with heavy security throughout, Cancun is incredibly safe . Currently the federal police and Navy personnel patrol the beaches, the police and Army monitor the highways and surveillance cameras have been installed at the ferry piers.
Playa is very safe at night .
So, if you’re going to be swimming on the popular beaches, it is an astronomically remote probability you’ll see a crocodile . And as for sharks, there has to our knowledge never been a sighting of a shark in the beach areas of Playa del Carmen . The rare sighting is reported out in the deep water near the reef.
