In selected suites a telescope for star-gazing or moon gazing.
The first known practical telescopes were invented in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century, by using glass lenses. Development is credited to Hans Lippershey a strange dude.
Galileo heard about the Dutch telescope in June 1609, built his own within a month saying if they can do it so can I. Later he declared the sun is the center of the solar system not the earth for which the Church excomunicated him.
What astronomy truths have to do with religion or faith is beyond me. The Mayans of Mexico knew this centuries before Galileo but the Church could not excomunicate them or intimidate them until later on with the arrival of missionaries.
The thing is this. Imagine what wonders YOU can discover!
Isaac Newton built the first practical reflecting telescope, of a design which now bears his name as does the cookie Fig Newton.

These unfortunate people were warned that they should reserve with CancunSteve.
Did they listen? No. Only to arrive and find out there was no record of their
reservation and they were turned into mariachi singer sculptures condemned to
sing Cielito Lindo and La Cucaracha for an eternity.
Royal Playa del Carmen sells-out way in advance so reserve with CancunSteve
soon. And welcome to this area of the hotel known as Mariachi square as a
reminder to reserve with the good guys.

Children can ruin a holiday - especially if they are not your own and are screaming like savages. Noisy youngsters can turn a peaceful hotel into a nightmare and a peaceful evening meal can be ruined by a savage kid having a tantrum. Holidays for adults only offer you the peace and elegance you deserve. Children are great. They're tax deductions.

In his book Yucatan Before and After the conquest written 1566 by Diego de Landa the friar explains that Poncho Hernandez set sail from Cuba with three ships to Mexico.
Unfortunately his book never went on to become a best seller. Nor win any awards. Ol Diego was no John Grisham. Poncho found idols of women representing the godess Ixchel and her daughters so he named that place Isla Mujeres. An island north of Cozumel and Playa del Carmen and Royal Playa.

All-ages resorts, which are pretty self-explanatory have amenities for both adults and children and are usually geared towards noisy families. Who wants to scold the couple at the next table to control the kid during your romantic dinner? There may be an adults-only bar or area, but the majority of the resort is open to everyone including the monsters. Most have kid-friendly pools (with warm spots and cold), activities, games, and food, and many even have baby sitting or day care available so that parents can have some time to themselves. Since children are welcome, all-ages resorts tend to be a little louder and more active- but they still make sure adults have a good time to a degree. There are some upscale resorts that allow children, but don’t necessarily cater towards them. See the many amenities here in Royal Playa del Carmen please.
For one thing no kids in the spa. The Royal Playa spa is awesome.
A spa is a location where mineral-rich spring water or seawater is used to give medicinal baths. Spa towns or spa resorts (including hot springs resorts) typically offer various spa treatments, which are also known as balneotherapy or simply going to the spa. The belief in the curative powers of mineral waters goes back to prehistoric times. Such practices have been popular worldwide, but are especially widespread in Europe and Japan.
The Greeks began bathing regimens that formed the foundation for the modern spa. These Aegean people utilized small bathtubs, wash basins, and foot baths for personal use. The earliest such findings are the baths in the palace complex at Knossos, Crete, and the luxurious alabaster bathtubs excavated in Akrotiri, Santorini; both date from the mid-2nd millennium BC. Greeks established public baths and showers within their gymnasium complexes for relaxation and personal hygiene. Greek mythology specified that certain natural springs or tidal pools were blessed by the gods to cure things. Around these sacred pools, Greeks established bathing facilities for those desiring healing. Supplicants left offerings to the gods like Healus, for healing at these sites and bathed themselves in hopes of a cure but there were no refunds. The Spartans developed a primitive vapor bath.
The steam escaped.
The Romans copied many of the Greek bathing practices. Romans surpassed the Greeks in the size and complexity of their baths shouting my bath better than your bath. Then stuck their tongues out. This came about by many factors: the larger size and population of Roman cities, and all the fat overweight Romans. The availability of running water following the building of aqueducts, and the invention of cement, which made building large edifices easier, safer, and cheaper. As in Greece, the Roman bath became a focal center for social and recreational activity. As the Roman Empire expanded, the idea of the public bath spread to all parts of the Mediterranean and into regions of Europe and North Africa.
But ain't nothin' like the spa you'll find here in the Royal Playa.
Good for you! You decided on an all-inclusive holiday 'cause you don't want to be counting money or worrying about costs while on vacation. So you've decided on this all inclusive Playa del Carmen resort. And you want the very best in prices and service. So you've selected CancunSteve for your all inclusive vacation here in The Royal Playa del Carmen. An adults only hotel
All-inclusive has evolved here in The Royal Playa del Carmen since the Borscht Belt back in the 1920's, the summer resorts of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York.
Borscht, associated with immigrants from eastern Europe, was a euphemistic way of saying Jewish.
These resorts were a popular vacation spot for New York City dwellers between the 1920s and the 1950s and the origins of the present-day all-inclusive resorts.
Most Borscht Belt resorts hosted traveling comics, showmen, and musicians, and many who later became famous in the cinema and TV.
The all-inclusive package at that time included lodgings, food, drinks, activities, and shows with well known artists like Milton Berle, Jack Benny, and Red Buttons, and Blue Buttons, who would make an early living at the night clubs up in the NY mountains, as would Hollywood stars like Mel Brooks, Billy Crystal, Rodney Dangerfield, Don Rickles, and even Joan Rivers.
But in those early days these early resorts never offerend spas, butler service, scuba classes, luxury air conditioned suites with ocean views, cable TV, and internet, as back then WiFi did not exist.
Nor did they offer gourmet fare or vegetarian plans as does the Royal Playa del Carmen.
$100USD resort credit at The Royal Playa del Carmen with reservations of 3 or more nights; for spa services like massages or room upgrades and romantic dinners

Chill out by the tranquil relaxation pool or in the luxurious SPAzul, featuring a hydrotherapy experience and Temazcal steam bath. Play volleyball in the oceanfront pool or enjoy snorkeling seeing those colorful tropical fish, tennis love-one, culinary classes and live music.

Did you know that the Royal Playa del Carmen is the FIRST hotel to offer not only FREE local calls, but FREE long-distance calls as well.
In better suites enjoy free calls anywhere!
Domestic or international.
Let me tell you a little story folks.
I was on a trip and needed to make many local phone calls.
Before proceding I asked the boy at reception if there were charges for same.
He replied one dollar and ten cents a call with tax.
Was I furious. But trying to argue with the kid would be like trying to catch air with a net.
What were my options.
One of those 800 number phone cards. You know the ones.
After dialing the 800 number you gotta hear 17 minutes of publicity before you can procede. Then you have to enter your PIN a small impossible to read 46 digit number on the back of the card.
You enevitably enter it wrong and gotta start all over again.
The public phone downstairs where you can dial for a quarter got a line from here to Grand Central.
Better pay the one dollar and dial from the room.
Now none of that hassle for you good people on your adult-only all-inclusive holiday here in The Royal Playa del Carmen.
All local calls are FREE.
And long distance as well.
Your on vacation at the Royal Playa del Carmen but realize you don't remember if you asked Aunt Mildred to water the plants out back.
Now give fat Mildred a call. It's free. Have peace of mind on this marvelous adult-only all-inclusive vacation.
As you both well-deserved this quality adult-only holiday together you stowed the kids with your hubby's folks in Brooklyn.
You'd like to know how they're doing and say hello to the little brats.
Ring, ring. (It's free to call remember).
A tired old voice answers the phone. Must be my husband's mother that old basalisk. Hope she hasn't frieghtened the children.
How's it going mom?
Hang in there basalisk. We're due back the 23rd.
That monster broke the Chinese vase in the living room.
Lemme talk to little Tommy.
Hi my angel. Are you behaving?
Mean old granma told me to turn down my music. It was too loud.
So I smashed her creepy vase on the floor.
Grandpa's asleep by the door. It's funny.
Why my angel?
Linda put a lamp shade on his head.
Pass me your sister.
Linda why did you put a lampshade on grandpa's head?
It's funny mom. Yesterday Tommy put a spider in my soup
Screams and yelling of the children can be heard.
The basalisk comes back on the line.
I'm so sorry if they are causing any inconvenience.
Got you and grandpa some nice gifts.
A sombrero for grandpa. Will look better than the lampshade.
And a bottle of fine aged Mexican tequila for you we won in the poolside volleyball games here in the Royal Playa del Carmen.
Thanks for the tequila dear. Since the kids are here I went through two quarts of Jack Daniels.
Grandpa is heard pleading hey stop kicking me Tommy.
At that moment you remember that TV commercial next time use condoms.

The Royal Playa del Carmen luxury all-inclusive resort with some 507 rooms has appeal to 20- ; to 40- something crowd. A particular draw of this resort is its proximity to the nightlife of downtown Playa del Carmen, in particular the Fifth Avenue with cafes and night-life, which party-oriented adults on holiday do appreciate. But the gorgeous stretch of beach and the sophisticated rooms with two-person Jacuzzis means romantic-minded couples will be pleased here as well. The range of features is, unsurprisingly, extensive, including seven restaurants and five bars where in every corner of The Royal Playa del Carmen find elegance galore, an Olympic-sized pool, a wedding center, and a spa as well.
The elegant furnishings here in the Royal Playa del Carmen are made by some local artisans.
There is a courtesy aromatherapy menu for you. Some suites with a swim-up pool right at your terrace door!
The satelite TV is LCD and moveable to different positions for viewing from the bed, from the table, from the terrace, and even your Jacuzzi.
The suite minibar is restocked daily with water, beer, soft drinks, juices, and snacks. Take all you want. All included in the Royal Playa all-inclusive package.
The Magic Box allows a discrete delivery of room service to your suite if it's inconvenient to answer the door at time of delivery.
Your private butler will help unpack your things if you wish. Just like Batman's Alfred.
Fanny and Moshe Levy won 8 million dollars in the lottery. They immediately went out to begin a life of living in luxury. They bought a luxurious mansion and surrounded themselves with all the material wealth imaginable and decided to hire a butler. After much searching, they found the perfect one.
One day, they instructed the butler to set up a dinner for four because they were inviting their friends, the Bratmans, over for dinner and they will be going out for the day.
When they returned that evening, they found the table set for six. When they asked the butler why six places were set when they specifically instructed him to set the table for four, the butler replied: "The Bratmans called and said that they were bringing the Bagels."
Then everyone came on down to the Royal Playa del Carmen.
Upon your arrival at Royal Playa you are given your passport which gives you all the restaurants and times and bars and they tell you if a reservation is required. The Royal passport also give you a sheet with some information on the back (about the Spa) and a schedule for the week. Pay attention to this! It tells you what is going on every day at the Royal Playa. They have events listed all day long from 9 in the morning until late night. I highly recommend hanging out, beach volleyball, water aerobics and all the shows. Do your first lunch experience at Pelicanos.
Scientificaly designed beds.
Double Jacuzzis in every suite. A chicken in every pot.
Stocked mini bars.
The electronic safe can even accomodate your laptop. For peace of mind.
Special maid service.
Green fees waived!
In selected suites private and semi-private swimming pool at your terrace door!
Telescopes for discovering the night skies in better suites. When astronomers saw my mother-in-law they thought they discovered a new planet.
Connected suite options available.
At the Maria Marie: which is Royal Playa del Carmen's Mexican French Fusion, you can enjoy great food and lobster too. You can order a lobster dinner for an extra cost. The lobster meal, is a seafood platter with lobster, and the lobster was HUGE and not a langosteen as some places serve. It was the real thing.
Visiting Playa del Carmen is an experience that every traveler must have. And of course staying in the Five Star Royal Playa del Carmen (that is if you want the best and are not traveling with the kids). As this is adult-only all-inclusive. Playa del Carmen is the city you will fall in love with. Not for the hair braiding joints on Fifth Avenue, but the laid-back friendly feeling there, may become your favorite city in the world.
For sure well ahead of Nairobi, or Dar es salaam (not salami) in Africa, or Buenas Aires, Argentina. Or Detroit, USA.
Since her first trip at the age of 16, Sheila returned seven more times, trying to uncover more layers of the city on each visit. From the underground wonders snorkeling, to windsurfing, to nearby archeological sites. Trendy night spots. Great restaurants for lobster tails at a fraction of the price compared back home in Great Neck, New York.
She loves Playa and her hotel of choice The Royal Playa del Carmen and its' spa.
Playa del Carmen, like New York and London, is one of those cities that will have portions of it forever shrouded in mystery, no matter how hard you explore. Nobody could ever get to the core of the Riviera Maya. tips:
The Mexicans living and working here and serving you in the Royal Playa del Carmen have a reputation for being friendly. It’s more accurate to say that they are informal and adore interaction with strangers. Don’t expect to talk to them like you would with someone in America. To be at home in The Royal Playa del Carmen is to smile, say hola, and pal up, to keep a friendly expression and a wide grin, especially if they say cute stuff like refering to the cruise ship as the big boat.
Or looka da sheep there in the water.
Always say, hola señor or hola señora whenever you enter a shop or restaurant. In Mexico, this is basic manners and something that children are taught at a young age (Except Emily la mal creada). Failing to do this may seem rude on your part. Say, hasta la vista when you leave, too.
Taxis are an easy, and safe way to travel through Playa del Carmen. Or just walk as everything is so close. If you’re up for a bit more of being local, consider taking the bus.
Try local cuisine like chilaquiles. tacos. enchiladas. carne asada. tamales.
Want to do something other than Mexican food? Do ethnic dining in the Royal Playa del Carmen. If you’re getting tired of Mexican food, consider going out for Middle Eastern, Vietnamese, Japanese, Indian or North African food. These cuisines in particular are found all over the city as well as in this Five Star beachfront adult all-inclusive.
Are you a vegetarian? There are lots of dishes to try in the Royal Playa del Carmen, and they're good. Low calorie too. Have spial needs? Gluten-free perhaps? The chefs in the Royal Playa del Carmen will accomodate you.
Also in Playa you can swim with dolphins. These are intelligent creatures. And they're not fish but mamals as they give milk to their young. Like Hilary Clinton but unlike her, dolphins are not liars.
when you swim and interact with live dolphins in the natural waters of the Caribbean Sea it's awesome. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll remember forever. These well-trained, dolphins will caress you, kiss you. Almost call you by name.
Sometimes we have free dolphin swims with your Royal Playa del Carmen booking.
Nearby are the Tulum ruins, one of the most unique and memorable Mayan ruins sites that you'll ever see. While, we admit, the ruins site is not as impressive as Chichen Itza, or the Pyramids of Geizah, Tulum holds the distinction of being the only walled city in the Mayan Empire, and most memorably, is set on a cliff top high over the Caribbean Sea, acting as a lookout against the approaching Spanish Armada who came to burn the Mayan books. This setting is one of the most beautiful you'll see anywhere and the beach below was rated as the 4th best in the world by National Geographic.

There's a tequilla museum, oodles of jewelry shops, arts and crafts stores. Even a bagel joint. Beach wear abounds. Clothing and souvenir shops, as well as locals who sell their handmade gifts by the roadside. It is wonderful to be able to shop the selection of items while a barefoot kid dances around to some music on the plastic radio.
