Now that the peso has sunk to historic lows, there's no better time to head South of the Border and take advantage of the dollar's dominance while enjoying a proper Mexican getaway.

Vidanta Riviera Maya, a beautiful resort complex clustered on the sunny Yucatan Peninsula with sweeping views of the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, features plenty to do for couples as well as families and groups.

It boasts five luxury hotels, a Jack Nicklaus golf course, a Cirque du Soleil dinner and show, 15 pools, 17 bars and restaurants, and vibrant animal sanctuaries featuring crocodiles, flamingos and sea turtles.

Recent guests have included discriminating celebs like Neil Patrick Harris, Adrian Grenier, Ashley Greene, Jessica Szohr and Joe Jonas, so you know it's worth the trip.

For the swankiest stay possible, check into the property's aptly-named Grand Luxxe, which offers one to three bedroom suites—the biggest of which comfortably sleep ten, come with three jacuzzis and two terrace plunge pools, and start at $3,700 a night. Go ahead and take a look inside:
