Top 5 All-Inclusive Resorts in Mexico

Mexico and the all-inclusive. From Mazatlán and Acapulco on the Pacific to the Yucatán Peninsula, the siren call of these one-stop-shop, turnkey resorts proves impossible for scores of beach-hungry burnout victims from North America and Europe to resist. After all, for busy careerists with umpteen irons in the fire – jobs, mortgages, bills, kids – the premise is simple: one affordable price for a room, three squares, drinks, pool and beach access. Without question, a no fuss, no muss, no stress path to tropical holiday bliss.

Not all all-inclusives, alas, stand on equal ground in terms of quality and class. And not all, of course, cater to the same clientele, be it the weary, workaday parents-of-three-under-the-age-of-five set or well-to-do golden agers. Some all-inclusives, for example, have kids’ clubs and water parks. Others, on the other hand, have golf courses and nudist sections. Needless to say, it’s a mixed bag.

Nowhere is this more in evidence than in Mexico, the country with more oceanside all-inclusives than any other. Read on as we shine the spotlight on five superb standouts in the Estados Unidos Mexicanos.

InterContinental Presidente Cozumel Resort & Spa

Cushy Cozumel is about as good as it gets on the all-inclusive resort front in Mexico. The Yucatán Peninsula island deserves a comprehensive look; not so easy, however, for visitors of the spectacular InterContinental Presidente Resort & Spa. With postcard Caribbean Sea views, a world-class spa and majestic rooms, the resort exerts a powerful pull.
