Additional Info:
    Just played the Iberostar Playa Paraiso course on the Maya Riviera, about 30 minutes south of Cancun. The course was designed by P.B. Dye, finished in 2005 and is a beauty. It is one of the newer tracks lining the area between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. The course features a lot of undulating greens, some that are almost crazy but fun for a resort track. Like other P.B. courses, this one is packed with bunkers, curved fairways and hollows in front of the majority of greens. The par 5 14th is one of the best at 485 yards featuring a steep hard dogleg. The course is carved out of the jungle and looks like Dye moved a lot of dirt. The course plays 6,683 from the tips with a 72.4/136 slope rating. A round including cart with snacks and drinks including beer runs $180 in the morning and $130 at twilight that starts at 1PM. Compared to some of the other tracks like El Cameleon at $259 a round, this is definitely worth playing. <br>Playa Paraiso, Maya Riviera Mexico <br>________________________________________ <br> <br>
