As a first time tourist, finding Mexico’s best all-inclusive resorts can be a pretty daunting task. Most people immediately think of Cancun, and rightfully so, resorts such as Club Med call Cancun home. In Cancun, there are 240 Hotels with 24,000 rooms and 380 restaurants. Cancun is one of the top ten most traveled destinations in the world, it is visited by over four million people a year.
My wife and I asked ourselves one day, before taking off on our last trip to Mexico. Where else in the country, features all-inclusive resorts and fun things nearby? Well we decided to look up destinations on onetravelsource.com, our favorite online travel agent, to see what we could come up with.
Mexico city sounded like a good start, so we gave it a try. We flew out on a Wednesday, and after several stops two volcanoes, Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, towered high above the city’s southeast side. We booked a room through onetravelsource.com at Camino Real Santa Fe Mexico in Mexico city. Although not a resort and not all inclusive, the Camino Real Santa Fe Mexico was a great place to begin our trek through Mexico, but relax the day.
We decided to begin with Cozumel. I have always wanted to explore the diving there, Cozumel is home to some of the worlds richest scuba diving. We found the Fiesta Americana Cozumel Dive Resort, an all- inclusive resort 15 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from town. With Amenities such as babysitting, of course scuba diving, and beautiful sandy beaches to get all the sun you need. Our three days at the Fiesta Americana Cozumel Dive Resort was well worth the four hundred dollars we spent there to have a great time.beach in Cancun
From Cozumel we decided to travel to Acapulco, on the Pacific side of Mexico. Acapulco boasts of adventurous daytime activities and world renowned night clubs. We booked a suite at the Park Royal Acapulco, an ideal resort for couples and families as we were traveling with our sitter and four year old son. The Park Royal, although only four stars, has a plentiful selection of restaurants and bars overlooking beautiful Acapulco Bay, a striking scene that we won’t soon forget. The Park Royal offers accommodations such as a 24-Hour Front Desk, babysitting, Valet Parking, Wedding Services and much much more, we absolutely loved The city and the Resort staff.
From there we went to Monterey Mexico. Called the City of the Mountains, this was our last and final stop, but since we could not find any all inclusive resorts, which is what we were looking for, we decided to spend a day there and head off to Cabo San Lucas.
There we booked a two night stay at the absolutely stunning Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas. Although no Spring Breakers were welcome here, it was absolutely stunning! Charm, character and beauty are but a few adjectives to describe this paradise. The Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas, In our opinion, is where experiencing the absolute best of paradise is possible, all in one place, you’ll just have to see it to believe it.
