Mayan Nuevo Vallarta question


Sep 16, 2005
Reaction score
I have paid my maintenance fee for my timeshare at the Myan for this year. In the past, we have always deposited our (Red) week with RCI. I am not real happy with RCI. They have raised their fees and I have never really gotten good trades. My question for those that own Mayan timeshares is this: Can you vacation at your "home" resort by simply calling the resort and telling them what week you want? We do own a "floating week" (Red week). My other question is, "Are there places in Hawaii that you can do a direct exchange with our Mayan Palace week?" I should already know the answers to these question, but I have to admit that I really don't because we have always deposited our week with RCI. I am very tired of giving RCI what I feel is a good week for their very inferior trades. I would appreciate your help my fellow Mayan property timeshare owners. My email is pwalsh67@yahoo.com if you would like to email. Thanks! PW
