Iberostar Selection Paraiso Maya

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 Mexico, we had the pleasure of touring the beautiful All-Inclusive Iberostar Selection Paraiso Maya. This resort impressed us with its wide, white sand beach, family friendly activities and its traditional Mayan decor.  

We Recommend This Resort For:  Families, Couples and Weddings
