Christmas in Mexico

We are a family of 5, (with 2 couples and a single guy,) all adults. 2 want to scuba dive, all want to snorkel, 1 wants to surf, and everyone will like to see some ruins and wildlife/nature. Planning to travel about Dec 20 -? and stay a week more or less. We would like to find a place to stay on a beautiful beach, with a bar and a variety of casual restaurants. We had a trip all set for Puerto Rico, but have to find another place because of the hurricane. Thank you for any advice or recommendations you can offer us.

We are booked at the Omni. We are wondering what kind of Christmas it will be. Is there a Mexican church we can go to on Christmas Eve or Christmas day? Will there be some special Christmas meal at a nice restaurant? Will shops and the ruins be closed or have reduced hours?

We had a wonderful Christmas trip with the family! The dive shop on site at the Omni is Dive Aventuras, and they were FANTASTIC! They arranged our package with the hotel, transfers, and scuba trips, and they even recommended the private tours with Sandra which were the highlight of the trip. Although I was told the hotel was fully booked, we did not find it crowded. The rooms are large, lovely, with nice balconies, and the service was great. The food and drinks were delicious. We enjoyed snorkeling right off the beach. Although you must go out past the artificial reef for the clearer water, it is shallow and we did not notice any current. Thank you to all the Trip Advisor participants who replied with your advice. :) Staying at the Omni, at Christmas time this year was a good choice for us!

HI. Just saw this now. Did you find a place? I had our Villa open. Too bad we didn't connect earlier.
