We will be taking our first family vacation to a non-US destination next month. We normally vacation in Florida. Just wandering what we can expect in Mexico. We booked an all inclusive resort in riviera maya. Besides the beach and pool (which we will be spending a lot of time at), is it safe for tourists to go sightseeing outside the resort? I'm very excited I've been googling tulum and chichen itza and was wondering if resorts offer trips to those destinations. Also is it safe to walk and wander out and about in town?
Also as far as bureaucracy is concerned... Passports are all we need right? I heard you get a special tourist card or something when you land in cancun.
