Deciding between NAS and CUN from NYC - Sun-Wed trip.

CUN is further but has the perk of kosher food, but the con of being more restricted bringing food in.

Is one of them significantly nicer in Jan? If I went to NAS, it would be to the Hyatt Baha Mar.

My main concern is that Sun-Wed isn't enough time for CUN from the east coast.
