Adult Topless Resort Recommendations (for Couple in their 20s)

Alright so my girlfriend and I are looking for some well-deserved R&R so we’re looking for an adults only topless (or possibly clothing optional) resort. We’ve done a little searching and realize we could use some advice from people who have been to some of these places. We have a few requirements:

  1. A good party vibe. We both like to go out for drinks and dance and stuff so having a good atmosphere for going out in the evenings is a must. We would need a good club somewhere on the resort…

Cuevas de Santa Rita – Beautiful Caves on the Road Less Travelled

I'm writing on behalf of12 students from the College of the Atlantic who are in the Yucatan for a 12 week cultural immersion. Through our explorations of the Yucatan we have been all over the state and seen many gorgeous sites, but last week we went subterranean in the caves at Santa Rita, and it was far and away the most staggeringly beautiful and rich experience of the trip. Why? Because to enter the caves is to descend into the "inframundo" a realm extremely important in the Mayan cosmovision…

One way airline tickets landing at a Mexican international airport-

"Article 86. A foreigner whose admission is denied by the Institute as a result of
not complying with the requirements established in Article 37 of this Law must
leave Mexico to the expense of the company that transported him or her,
notwithstanding the corresponding sanctions under this Law."

The new Mexican Immigration Law is clear on this subject and a few posters thought is was not true.

Do you have any suggestions, where to start (Mexico City, Cancun?).
I would like to combine both nature, culture and relaxation on the beaches....

Recommendations will be most appreciated!

San Jose Del Cabo - hotel near airport?

Hi
We are flying into San Jose Del Cabo late at night, and as we have a bit of a drive to get to where we are staying further up the coast wanted to spend a night in a hotel close to the airport.
Anyone know of any reasonably priced options that we can book? Ideally dont want to have to go into town as we will leave as soon as we wake up the next morning after picking up a rental car from the airport...
cheers
Amanda

a couple of Mexico questions

#1: I'm flying into Cancun in a week. I arrive at 3:30 pm, then have to go through customs, etc. Does anyone know about a bus direct from the airport to Playa del Carmen that would be leaving late afternoon? I'm guessing a taxi would be quite spendy for that distance. I'm hoping to not have to go into Cancun.

#2: I think have the visa situation figured out. As an American, I can get a tourist card on arrival that's valid for 180 days. I'm wondering though, is this multiple-entry? I.e. if I go…

Cenotes : Tour vs Self Guided

Hi all,

Quick question. Is it better to take a tour of the cenotes in Q.Roo/Yucatan, or to get collectivos and do it ourselves?

Do you get anything special from the tour, besides the guided aspect/ transport?

Are things like snorkels / lifejackets etc at the Cenote? or does a tour company supply those?

Thanks :)
