Mexico Travel

All-inclusive vacations are meant to be hassle-free: you pay up front and while you’re there your biggest concern is avoiding sunburn.  To make sure that you have a great time, you need to do some research before you put your money down. Here are the factors you should consider when choosing an all-inclusive vacation.

Consider your destination – Mexico has destinations to suit all ages and interests. Before you decide to buy an all-inclusive vacation you should consider your options.

What type of vacation do you want to take? – All-inclusive resorts in Mexico are often geared toward a specific crowd. If you’re traveling as a couple you may not want to stay at a resort that’s over-run with children. And if you’re traveling as a family, you want to be sure the resort you choose has plenty of activities for the youngsters. Also, consider the size of the resort – do you want to stay at a huge resort with thousands of rooms, or do you prefer a more intimate setting?

What is included? – Food, drinks and accomadation are generally included in the price of  an all-inclusive vacation. But what services, activities and outings that are offered by the resort-are these included in the cost or do you have to pay extra? Beware of hidden charges, like “resort fees” that may be added on to your bill. Tips are sometimes said to be included in the price, but you may find that most people tip anyway.

Will you be spending all your time at the resort? – If you won’t be spending all of your time at the resort then you should consider transportation. Does the resort offer shuttle service, or will you have to pay for taxis? How far is the hotel from the nearest town? If you want to take excursions outside the resort, be sure to choose a resort with nearby attractions.
