The answer to post-holiday stress!

Thomson Reuters, “the answer company,” has an answer, sure to meet your post-holiday pampering needs! Catch a Southwest jet to Cancun, then travel less than an hour to the fringes of the Yucatan jungle. Here, hugging the white sands of Mexico’s Caribbean coast, the all-inclusive Grand Velas awaits, offering captivating views of the pristine landscape of Riviera Maya, Mexico.

Located five minutes from downtown Playa del Carmen, the Riviera Maya beach resort is an enchanting escape for the soul. Lounge on the pristine beach or play in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, and fishing. Explore the lush jungle by horseback or ride an exciting zip line through the trees.
