(skip to 4th paragraph for main idea of this thread)
so apparently my mom booked my family to stay at the Riu in cancun for an all inclusive vacation. i was suprised because we usually don't do anything after christmas, and she just told us a few days ago. i'd prefer a nice ski vacation, but since my sister was in NZ for all of our summer, and then came back for our winter, she didn't really get time this year to have nice warm weather and beaches.
after my mom told me about all the stuff there is, and just exactly what all inclusive means, i started getting a little more excited. i read some reviews on numerous sites about the hotel, and it seems like it's a real nice place. the only thing im "hesistant" about is being by myself. my mom is gonna be meeting up with friend thats also staying in cancun, and my two sisters will stay with each other, so that leaves me solo.
i'll let you know now that im a pretty shy person, and my real personality doesn't come out until i get to know someone. if i had a friend with me i'd definately be more likely to wanna meet up with new people and stuff, but im worried im just gonna be stuck getting burnt to a crisp at the beach by myself, or like sitting in the hotel room.
i guess all im looking for from this thread is advice. i've never been to cancun before, so i honestly don't know anything or any of the clubs or places to go. i'm 17 but i know getting drinks or into clubs won't be a problem, so if anyone's ever been there or just has advice on stuff to do that'd be awesome. as i think more about going there i'm getting more excited because for the first time in my life im actually getting stressed about school and work and stuff, so this should be a great getaway.
so yea it took me like 3 paragraphs just to get to my question - any advice for going to cancun? gracias
