“Amazing secluded location. Not anywhere near the hotel zone of Cancun which is what we wanted. The place smells wonderful and is spotless. The staff is incredible. Beach is perfection (maybe some seaweed depending on the time of year but nothing too bad) room is spacious and the shower is amazing. We opted for an excellence club upgrade and found it to be worth it but not doing an upgrade will still be just fine to have an amazing time. The only reason why this isn’t a perfect score is the food. It is average and only a few dishes were excellent. Everything else is just so so but still tasty and so many options. Recommend!”

✅ Cancun is a great destination either for family, couples, or solo travelers. There’s everything for every taste and budget.

What does an adults-only resort mean in Cancun?

Adults only resort means that children are not accepted. Some resorts only accept Couples and don’t accept singles either.

Yes, Cancun is the perfect destination for couples as well. Cancun caters all sorts of travelers and that is why you can find resorts that are more suitable for families and others that are only for Adults and couples such as the ones I mention in this post.

Does all-inclusive include alcohol in Cancun?

Yes, all-inclusive does include alcohol in Cancun. However, in some resorts premium, alcoholic beverages are not included.

Do I need cash at an all-inclusive resort?

You need cash for tipping and if you want to purchase some Mexican souvenirs from local vendors. Otherwise, credit cards are widely accepted.

Do you tip waiters at all-inclusive?

Yes, if you wish, you can tip waiters.

How much do you tip at an all-inclusive room service in Mexico?

You can consider tipping from 60 to 100 pesos ( 3 to 5 USD) per night. However, if you leave a huge mess in your room, you may want to consider leaving more.

Are 20 to 50 pesos a good tip?

It depends. I would consider 20 pesos a very low tip nowadays. I would start from 50 pesos. However, at a gas station, it can be a good tip.

Also read Driving in Mexico, all you need to know.

Is it better to tip in USD or pesos in Mexico?

It doesn’t really matter as long as it’s the same equivalent in either currency.

✨ Mexico Travel Planning Guide ✨

👉 Do I need travel insurance to travel to Mexico?

I would do it if I were you. You never know what can happen and know that no matter what, you will be covered with any expenses will give you peace of mind, and make your travel worry-free. You can check out SafetyWing which I have used and find it affordable and comprehensive and also Travel Insurance Master which is great because you can insert all your information and what kind of insurance you need and their system will pull out the best insurance for your need.

🚰 Can I drink tap water in Mexico?

No, you can’t! Maybe in some areas or in some homes where they have installed water filters but to be on the safe side, I would say, never drink tap water in Mexico. Carry a water bottle with you and fill it up where you find available potable water sources. Most of the hotels have those.

🚗 Is it safe to drive in Mexico?

The short answer is: depending on where you are. Although in general if you stick to the main roads and don’t drive at night you should probably be safe. In lesser tourist areas you should probably check the local news to stay up to date. Driving in the Yucatan Peninsula is easy everywhere, even at night, although I would still avoid it. I usually use Discover Cars because the site offers the options to compare prices among different car rentals and you can add their own full coverage.

Read more on my guide on Renting a car in Mexico.

📱 Will my phone work in Mexico?

It will probably work, especially if you have a European or US phone, but your roaming rates may be to the stars (check with your SIM provider). Even if have an affordable international rate, you will be much better off by buying a Mexican SIM Card. It’s cheap, easy to set up, and it will keep you connected with your friends, family, and, more important, google Maps so you will never get lost!

🤕 Is it safe to travel to Mexico right now?

The short answer is, yes it is. However, there are parts of Mexico that are indeed troubled and you should avoid for now, and others that are super safe and easy to travel around.

Regardless of where you are you should always use some common sense rules such as, never flaunting expensive clothing, accessories, electronics, or money and keeping a low profile.

Read more on my detailed guide on safety in Mexico. If you are traveling to a specific destination I have got you covered as well:

💉 Do I need any vaccine to travel to Mexico?

No, there is no vaccine requirement (of any kind) to travel to Mexico

🇲🇽 Do I need a visa to travel to Mexico?

If you are coming from the US or Europe you don’t need a VISA to enter Mexico. Once you get in you need to fill out a form that you need to keep with you until you leave. If you don’t have it you will pay a fine.

Although the tourist visa for US and European travelers used to be 6 months long which you could easily renew by leaving the country for a couple of days and going back, nowadays they have been stricter. You may be asked how you would sustain your living and other similar questions. Sometimes they even ask you to show your credit cards.

It seems odd but they can do that. If you intend to stay longer than a usual couple of weeks’ vacation time, just be honest and explain your plans. If you are not from the US, check this site to see if you need a visa

💸 Where do I find the best travel deals for Mexico? 💸

A trip to Mexico can be expensive if you love to travel with all the comforts (like I do). There are a few tricks that will help you find the best deals. Here are my tips:

👉 DON’T travel in the high season, which is Holy week, Christmas and winter in general, and August.
👉 Book months in advance to find early booking discounts
👉 Use aggregators such as Discover Cars to find price comparisons and VRBO for vacation rentals!
👉 Look for packages flights+hotels on Expedia or Skyscanner as usually, that’s where the best deals are.
👉 Check on Booking.com or Hotels.com for hotel deals

Happy travels!!
