Playa Mujeres: The Place to Be

Its that time of year again – Spring Break. The girls over here at Epperly Travel have been booking trips to Playa Mujeres left and right. Whether it be a fun girls trip, a family vacay, a honeymoon getaway, or even a wedding party, this is definitely the place to be this year!

For those who haven’t been here (you’re missing out, honestly), Playa Mujeres is about 30 minutes north of Cancun – just far away enough to still get that fun beach feel while still being in the quietness of this elegant city. The sand is white, the water is blue, and beaches are clear.

Have I convinced you yet?

Perfect! Now that you are craving the beach, let’s talk about places to stay. Do you want a family friendly, all inclusive resort? How about a nearly 5 star all inclusive? Adults only? Well, Playa Mujeres has all of the above.

One of the larger all inclusives is the Excellence Playa Mujeres Resort. At this adults only oasis, nothing is left out. Located between the Caribbean and wetlands preserve, this resort is located on 2 miles of gorgeous, white sandy beaches. With activities such as snorkeling, golfing, and swimming with dolphins, you will never get bored, and with ten international restaurants on-site, your tastebuds will never get bored.

Still in the Excellence group, Beloved Playa Mujeres is next on the list. It is an all inclusive, adults only, boutique style resort. This rare combination is hard to find in the Caribbean & Mexico seeing that most this size are either not at the same caliber or they’re much larger. Beloved has only 108 suites so you are still able to get all of the great services that Excellence has to offer with a more intimate feel. Go for the simply elegant Swim Up Suite that includes a private garden and offers direct pool access or a Penthouse Suite that includes a large private terrace and a plunge pool with an ocean view. Whatever you choose, I promise you will love it.

Bringing the kids along? No big deal! At Finest Playa Mujeres, everyone in the family is invited, and each family member will have just as much fun as the next. Enjoy family activities such as live entertainment, snorkeling, and even cooking and scuba diving lessons. The kids can also spend time at the water park while the adults sip cocktails under a beachside lounge. There are even family-friendly spa treatments if the whole family needs that extra push to relaxation. Not to mention, they have some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted.

The last 2 resorts are located right next to each other along a private stretch of beach only 10 minutes away from downtown Cancun. Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort is a new family-friendly resort with 65,000 square feet of swimming pools, an on-site water park, and a space just for teens. Relax on the beautiful white beaches, take a lap around the lazy river, or tee off at the Playa Mujeres Golf Course. There is a little something for everyone at Dreams.

Parents, do you need a little time away from your kids? Head on over to the adult only Secrets Resort right next door, and rest assured that your kids will be in good hands with Dreams Playa Mujeres child care experts. At Secrets, adults can enjoy a kid free environment to enhance their relaxation. With activities such as golfing, nightly entertainment, tours and excursions, couples massages, and more, you can do as much (or as little) as you please.

Summer vacation is approaching fast, so what are you waiting for? Grab your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, best friends, or your entire family. From large, family friendly all inclusives to small adults only resorts, Playa Mujeres is the place to be.
