When you first start researching your vacation in Mexico for places to stay, you often find these 3 main categories: Resorts, hotels, and homestays (Airbnb). The most popular ones are the resorts and the most recommended as they take care of all your needs.
Reasons why resorts are best for tropical vacations
- All-inclusive You get the convenience of having everything taken care of for you if you want a relaxing vacation. Unlimited food, drinks, entertainment, amenities, usually right on the beach, and other perks such as rides to and from the airport.
- Convenience – Once everything is said and done, since everything you need is at a resort, you don’t have to worry about the costs or booking anything else, which can save on travel planning time and stress.
- Safety – Resorts are usually closed off to non-guests in addition to the government wanting to keep tourism safe. In Mexico, you may see soldiers patrolling as added security.
- Personal Freedom – You can be who you are and no one will judge you as resorts see thousands of international tourists since everyone is respected.
- People – You have locals who work here who can give you the best advice for places to go or other recommendations such as restaurants if you ask.
- Deals – Its possible to find amazing deals, especially in the off-season
