Live Aqua Beach Resort Cancun

@cadia1satu The video don’t even do it’s justice. It was so beautiful and calm at @grandhyattplaya resort! I definitely recommend staying here especially if you have a little one. They were so accommodating, rooms were extremely clean, food was delicious and the view was BEAUTIFUL. They also upgraded our room which was pretty generous. 💐 #Travel #FamilyTravel #PlayaDelCarmen #GrandHyatt #Mexico #PlayadelCarmen #Familyvlog #Trip #blacktravel #mexicotravel #tiktok #fyp ♬ Relaxing lofi music(1014185) – Akase

You can then book private transportation to have waiting at the airport for you.   

Prices for private transportation start at around $44 to get to Live Aqua, $87 to get to Grand Hyatt, and $555 to get to MIA Bacalar, one-way for two people.

The Future Of Tourism In The Mexican Caribbean  

The Mexican Caribbean continues to grow in popularity, and with that popularity comes more and more amenities.   

In the near future, visitors will have the Tulum Airport and the Maya Train as options for getting to and around the region too.   

When this happens, you can expect the Mexican Caribbean to become even more popular in the future.
