Cancun & Riviera Maya are two of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico. Vacationers flock here for pristine white beaches, top-notch resorts, and crystal blue water. There is so much to do in this destination, including the Mayan Ruins, great diving spots with colorful coral reefs and diverse sea life, and hundreds of cenotes (deep natural wells) to explore.

Budget Options

You don’t have to spend a fortune to relax on a luxurious beach at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun or the Riviera Maya. The Royal in Playa del Carmen is one great option. This is the first adults-only, all-inclusive I ever stayed at, and it is still one of my favorites to this day. You cannot beat the amazing location near nightlife and daytime activities.

Another Cancun resort that won’t break the bank is Fiesta Americana Condesa CancunHere you will find a full-service spa, upscale restaurants, a kid’s club, and a bi-level sundeck with three Jacuzzis and a massive pool.
Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa is another great option. We suggest booking one of the ground floor rooms with private terraces and your very own plunge pool. Here you can enjoy nine gourmet restaurants, six bars, a Kids club, and the worldclass Dreams Spa by Pevonia.

Mid-Range Options

Another favorite resort of mine is Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa. This property is a bit off the beaten path, which is perfect for couples or families looking to get away. For those looking for an adults-only experience, book the Hideaway section.

Excellence Riviera Cancun is another great option. I have toured this property many times and I am always struck by the distinct luxurious feel and attention to detail! Not to mention, the food is some of the best I’ve experienced at an all-inclusive resort.
