The Viceroy in Riviera Maya

Located on the tropical waterfront in Riviera Maya, Mexico, the newly renovated Viceroy now boasts 11 suites and 30 villas, enhanced with private plunge pools and secret outdoor showers. It’s a calm, romantic resort, and Playa del Carmen’s high-energy nightlife is just 15 minutes away. The Viceroy is offering a very cool special to traveling guests ready to unpack and stay a while. If you stay four nights or longer, the Viceroy will reimburse you with a resort credit to cover your airplane ticket upon arrival. Rather than peanuts and uncomfortable seats, you’ll spend your money on fine dining and spa pampering. Sounds like a good deal to me. For more information and current pricing, visit
