The 10Best.com Readers’ Choice Awards - in which the public chooses the best of the best in categories like food, lodging, destinations, travel gear and activities - have been a huge success. 10Best travel experts select the 20 top nominees, and then readers make the final top 10 selections. Cancun, the Riviera Maya and Playa del Carmen have been winners in various categories, most notably for their incredible resorts.
Since Cancun is a world-class vacation destination that features miles of white sand beaches, turquoise blue Caribbean waters, balmy temps, ancient Mayan history and culture and unparalleled nightlife, activities, shopping and dining, it’s no surprise that recently a total of four Cancun-area resorts won spots in the 10Best All-Inclusive Resorts category: all-suite, adult-only Excellence Playa Mujeres came in 6th place; the glitzy Hard Rock Hotel Cancun captured 4th place; extremely popular The Royal Playa del Carmen came in 3rd; and “awe-inclusive” resort Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort won 1st place.
