As part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about the destinations you want to visit by visiting them firsthand. Recently while in Riviera Maya, Mexico, we had the pleasure of touring the beautiful El Dorado Casitas Royale, an Adult Only Gourmet All-Inclusive resort. This resort impressed us with its unique luxury suites, commitment to the environment and gourmet food options.
