For a fun vacation and total relaxation, all inclusive trips to Mexico can offer a complete break from the stress of everyday life on a fixed budget. If you have not previously considered this type of vacation, here are some of the things you should know.
All inclusive vacations will generally include the price of your accommodation, meals and snacks, drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages – but often excluding imported brands) and even many activities and exclusions can be included in a fixed price. These packages are usually offered at specific resort locations with the Caribbean and Mexico probably the most popular locations for all inclusive trips in the world. For me Mexico has the edge with less rain and less chance of hurricanes!
The most popular resort areas in Mexico by far, are those of Cozumel, Acapulco and Cancun. These Mexican resorts until recently, were the haunts of film stars, politicians and millionaires. Today though they are within the reach of many of us. Increased competition among airlines and the resorts themselves along with economies of scale have drastically reduced the price of an all inclusive Mexico vacation.
A few years ago the food offered on some of the all inclusive packages in Mexico may have been considered basic fare, but nowdays all inclusive Mexico trips offer scrumptious poolside buffets or grills and a choice of restaurants within the resort. Typical activities are also top class with kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, windsurfing, fitness centers, poolside games and Kids Club activities. Typically motorized water sports, such as jet skiing or para sailing and even scuba diving are usually not included within the package but are available at extra cost. Many of these upmarket resorts also offer spa and beauty services (again fees apply).
The whole point of these all inclusive resorts is to provide world class service, top class luxury and to pamper to their guests every need. Hereby providing an oasis from 21st century life. Possibly the most famous of these luxury resorts are those operated by the Sandals and Beaches groups. These companies are responsible for putting the luxury all inclusive vacation on the map. Sandals is famous for offering their 24hr concierge service (effectively a personal butler) which cater to your every need (please please note that Sandals offer a range of packages and concierge service is not included on all of them so please read the small print!) .
Most all inclusive resorts in Mexico do, in fact, offer a range of packages to suit all tastes. For example a basic package may be offered which includes apartment accommodation, all food and drinks and airport transfers. More expensive packages may add sea views, beach cottage, detached villa with private pool, concierge service, limo / driver, business services and much more. So while you are looking for a great family vacation on a fixed budget, or a luxury 5 star executive getaway with no expense spared, there will be an all inclusive package to suit you!
