A week basking in the sun in January sure sounds good, doesn’t it? You’re invited to join us at the Barcelo Maya Tropical & Colonial Resort in the Mexican Riviera. Your entire trip will be fully escorted by an R&J Director. The resort has delightful rooms that open to the breezes of the Caribbean. All your meals are taken care of and there’s food available in one of the 8 different restaurants including amazing buffets – morning, noon and night!  Want something to drink? Water, soda and all domestic drinks are included and available at one of the 7 bars conveniently located around the resort.
