Mexico Resorts FAQ

What part of Mexico is best for all-inclusive resorts?

You can find all-inclusive resorts in Mexico mainly along the east and west coasts, or along the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean.  Popular areas for all-inclusive Mexico resorts include Cancun, Cozumel, and Playa del Carmen on the east coast, and Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta on the west coast.

Is Cancun or Cabo better?

This depends on what you’re looking for in your vacation. If you want luxury, a more peaceful natural environment, and a rugged coastline, Cabo San Lucas is better for you. If you want to be in the middle of the action, like a vibrant nightlife, or are interested in touring Mayan ruins, Cancun is better for you.

Both Cabo and Cancun offer gorgeous beaches, but many of the beaches in Cabo aren’t safe for swimming. Cancun’s beaches, while crowded, are swimmable.

What is the best month to go to Mexico?

The best month to go to Mexico could be May, as it is in between the spring break crowds and the start of the rainy season. November is also one of the best months to visit. In general, spring and fall are the shoulder seasons, offering lower costs and milder weather.

The high season in Mexico is December to April and this coincides with the best weather. Summers are hot and steamy, and you have the chance for hurricanes from June to November.
