I was invited by the wonderful AMResorts to visit their Cancun/Riviera Maya properties for a fun week of site visits. I also took a day trip out CHICEN ITZA to check off one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Some of my favorite features of the AMResort properties are:

  • NO Wristbands
  • NO Dining Reservations – you are not limited to how many nights you dine at the a la carte restaurants & 24 hr Room Service!
  • Unlimited Connectivity -Free app that allows access to WiFi & international calling
  • Sip, Savor & See: Enjoy complimentary dinner and drinks and live evening entertainment at nearby participating resorts from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. *Restrictions apply
  • Frozen Baileys at the Coco Cafe- trust me
