Sometimes you want to get off the beaten path on an adventurous vacation, and sometimes you just want a relaxed trip where you can lie by the beach or pool with a drink in hand.
There’s a time and a place for both types of travel, but an all-inclusive resort in Mexico is perfect for the latter type of vacation.
The results of the Travvy Awards are in, and they highlight the best all-inclusive resorts in Mexico for the ultimate winter getaway.
Why Stay In An All-Inclusive Resort In Mexico?
All-inclusive resorts have been growing in popularity due to the hassle-free nature of staying in one. Your lodging, all meals, all drinks, and more are included in the nightly rate you pay.
The best all-inclusive resorts have numerous dining options to choose from, as well as included activities and entertainment offerings. Many all-inclusive resorts offer great perks like free round-trip airport transportation and rental of water sports equipment to use on the beach.
Mexico is one of the top destinations in the world for all-inclusive resorts, and it’s an extremely convenient getaway for American travelers, thanks to the abundance of affordable nonstop flights.
There are all-inclusive resorts in Mexico available for every price point (including some for as little as $250 per night) and every type of traveler, including couples, adults, and families.
Here are the best all-inclusive resorts in Mexico in 2023:
Best All-Inclusive Adult/Couples Resorts In Mexico
For couples and groups of adults traveling together, you may want to stay in an adults-only resort rather than a resort filled with families and young children. Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya takes home the gold for the best all-inclusive adult/couples resort in Mexico this year.
This lesser-known Quintana Roo beach destination is soaring in popularity right now. Located between the hotspots of Cancun and Tulum, Akumal is more low-key.
@mtinatravels This is truly one of my absolute favorite all-inclusive resorts! I can never get over how beautiful the water, and how the staff goes above and beyond to ensure you have an amazing stay! #traveladvisor #allinclusiveresort #secretsakumal #rivieramaya ♬ Chill Vibes – Tollan Kim
You’ll never run out of things to do at this resort, which includes nine restaurants, seven bars, an oceanfront infinity pool, a private beach, nightly theme parties, and endless live entertainment. It’s the perfect place for a honeymoon, girls’ trip, or adult family vacation.
