The tiny island off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula offers the perfect destination to those that just want to get away from it all. There is plenty of beachfront property to be able to find a suitable resort. And if a small excursion away from the beach is in your plans, there is diving, snorkeling, whale watching and tours of the ancient ruins on the island. Cozumel has its own international airport with many flights to and from the US that make getting to the island fairly easy.
Atlantis Resort, Bahamas
The Atlantis Resort is on its own island near Nassau in The Bahamas where you can sit by the beach, swim with dolphins or play a round of golf. There are multiple pools and waterslides, including a glass tube slide that takes you through an aquarium that is inhabited by sharks. There are actives for all ages of kids making this resort a great place for families to spend a week.
Playa Del Carmen
Located in the heart of the Riviera Maya is Playa Del Carmen. It offers a lot of the same day trips as Cancun, such as Chichen Itza, but doesn't have the party town reputation.
