Drop it All and Move to Mexico
Riviera Maya, the 75-mile coastline south of Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula still has the white sand and turquoise Caribbean water (and 10-to-one peso-to-dollar exchange), but is thankfully lacking Cancun’s Senor Frogs mentality. Instead it’s got eco-resorts, Mayan ruins and wildlife reserves. The fishing village of Puerto Morelos is a great home base (and just 15 minutes from the airport). It’s remained resort-free with a historic church and center town square surrounded by open air seafood joints. Explore the area’s cenotes – Mayan underground cave and river system – for an exotic snorkeling day trip. Or venture just 1,500-feet offshore to dive with 500 species of fish on the Mesoamerican Reef, the second-largest barrier reef in the world. Icing on the cake: Rent a one-bedroom, thatched-roof palapa steps from the beach for $380 a week or $850 a month.Check it Out:
