I have a tough trip to plan coming up. Every other year my mother takes us all on a trip for Christmas. Next Christmas is Cancun. Last time it was San Diego and there were 33 of us. I have to figure out planes and hotel for all of us. Then transportation and options for things to do. We are looking for an all inclusive hotel, so it includes all of the meals there and hopefully has activities. With 33 people, activities need to be varied and tours are great. I will need to get a wheelchair for my dad. I did San Diego, but this one is going to be an even bigger challenge. HELP!!

Admins, please allow links! I need suggestions and am not trying to sell anything.

Links are always allowed, as long as they're not "for promotional purposes". The determination of what falls or doesn't fall under that header is very situational, but depends a lot on building trust. You've built up enough posting history here that any link you post should just be allowed. (But if you'd post a dozen posts on different threads, all promoting the same site, then that'd still get flagged.) People responding to you who've posted more often, and whose responses include on topic links will also be fine. But if there's a first time poster responding with multiple links, then that would still get a very close look, as chances would be that the poster would not be a disinterested party, but would personally benefit from whatever they'd be promoting.

There are a lot of hotels in Cancun, in Cancun Downtown and in Cancun Hotel Zone, just check at tripadvisor, is the best way to find a good hotel.

I will not touch Trip Advisor with a ten foot pole. Not after what they did with VT.

Mmmm, in that case, I don't know if I can help you, look, I only visited Cancun twice, I stay in Grand Oasis Palm, the first time was great, amazing service and there are a lot of stuff to do INSIDE the hotel, the staff were kind (only the first time). But after that one, the second time in that hotel was not nice at all, the staff in there looks mad all the time, and them doesn't talk you as the client that wants to enjoy the hotel.

That is good to know! Thank you. I was part of the VT crowd that had our information taken by Trip Advisor...

Really? Omg, I think I hear of that, and when are you going to Cancun?

We will be going right after Christmas.

Yes, many of us found our information posted on Trip Advisor right after they announced the closing of VT because they purchased the site.

That's unbelievable, how they can manipulate the information they want.

I'm not the right guy to help you where to stay in Cancun, put I can suggest you a transportation service to get any hotel you choose, honestly that helped me a lot, me and my family, I didn't have much budget for that, and I was able to find a very safe and reliable one.
