The Iberostar Tucán Hotel is located just a five minute drive from the center of Playa del Carmen along Mexico's splendid Mayan Riviera. This Mexican village, whose economy was based primarily on fishing, has become, in recent years, a preferred travel destination along Mexico's Caribbean coast.

Playa del Carmen is a gorgeous city showcases activities for all tastes. Its spectacular beaches, shops and restaurants, booming nightlife, and thousands of people flocking to the famous Quinta Avenida, make this tourist destination simply irresistible.

For travelers wanting to explore other corners of the Yucatán Peninsula, Playa del Carmen is conveniently close to other popular destinations such as Cozumel, Tulum, and Puerto Morelos. The Iberostar Tucán is also within close proximity to the Cancun International Airport.

Pros: The resort is beautiful - situated in a tropical jungle environment complete with amazing wildlife. Iberostar Tucan/Quetzal truly becomes a magical place in the evening, with winding paths throughout the resort to find your way and canopied trees shading the area during the day, walking around is as much a treat as staying at the resort! Both Iberostar Quetzal and Iberostar Tucan are the same resort and completely identical in every way. This resort remains a top pick for clients of all ages and likes. Notable Features & Benefits - Beaches - Absolutely Spectacular. - Location - Walking distance to Playa del Carmen. - Service - Unparalleled in this category. - Activities/Entertainment - Star Friends keep everyone busy night and day. - Dining - Fantastic food in category. - Nightlife - Onsite disco with inclusive drinks, many nightclubs nearby as well. - Resort Grounds - Very well manicured with natural waterfalls and wildlife. - Safety/Security - In gated community of Playacar - safe to explore offsite. - Nearby Resorts - Complimentary access to several other Iberostar resorts in the area You can't go wrong with these resorts! Whether you have young children, celebrating your honeymoon or traveling solo, Iberostar Quetzal and Iberostar Tucan will meet all of your needs and surpass your expectations. Vacation Side Travel maintains close relationships with resort management & staff and because of the volume, can offer preferred suite locations, complimentary upgrades and perks around every corner. Contact us to confirm your booking today!

Cons: Rather than talk about negatives, since there really aren't any, here is a shortlist of things to be aware of: - Swim-up Bar - Separate from the main pool in a smaller adults only pool. This may be a plus for many people. - Dining Reservations - Reservations are required at a la carts. - Ocean Views - Very few rooms are oceanfront but many have partial ocean views - Pool Depth - There is a zero entry area but the pool is over 5' deep. - WIFI Access- There is a charge for wifi. This shortlist are just things to be aware of but are by no means, deal breakers. The few shortcomings are more than made up for by all of the other resort features.
