Travelocity acknowledges the Riviera for Family fun.

Travelocity has voted the Riviera to be best international destination on the list. The destination known for its almost magical quality of ecosystems and breathtaking turquoise waters ranked #2 over all, proving yet again that Mexico’s number one destination is still a favorite among North American travelers visiting abroad.

In a statement released by Travelocity the online travel company called the Riviera’s central hub, Cancun, “A destination once known for spring break debauchery, Cancun has reinvented itself as a family-friendly destination. It comes in as the number-one destination for families traveling internationally, and two on the overall list.”  The Travelocity’s ranking is based on an analysis of the summer bookings for 2011 by their own travel experts.

The southern Riviera is increasingly emerging as a family-friendly destination due to its attractions and varied hotel infrastructure that ranges from all-inclusive to EP plan; all of them equipped with facilities and staff who are committed to make each stay enjoyable for even the littlest guests. Some of the preferred children’s attractions include water parks Wet’n Wild and Xel Há,  our own beauty of Playa Del Carmen, the Aquarium at La Isla shopping center, the eco-amusement park Xcaret, the dolphin experience at Delphinus and Dolphin Discovery and the adventure park Xplor. Along with these Río Secreto, Alltournative, Selvática, each allows families to come together and enjoy nature; from Crococún, where one can admire endemic fauna & flora such as coatis, spider monkeys, deer, crocs, etc to zip-lining in the jungle in Selvática or spending a great day at Xel Há’s lazy river, as well as learning to respect the environment in all of their sustainable activities within the park.  The season to swim with the whale shark has also just begun (which was mentioned in one of our earlier blogs.) The entire Riviera is growing and blending together to present an even more outstanding service to meet the needs for its patronizing tourists.
