We stayed at the Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya, near Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan Peninsula. The resort was expansive and beautiful, and its staff was incredibly friendly. The Valentin's pristine beach, extra large swimming pool, and town-square style plaza gave us plenty to do during the day. In the evenings we sampled gourmet food from four of the resort's six restaurants, enjoyed live music, and specialty cocktails at its themed bars. Our last night at the resort was my favorite -- all guests were treated to a Mexican-style fiesta, complete with Jarabe dancers and a Mariachi band.
We ventured off the resort one day to visit the eco-themed amusement park Xcaret, photos of which I'll share in a later post. For now, enjoy these images from the grounds of the Valentin Imperial!
