In a world with more than 6.8 billion people, 195 countries, and a world wide web, the list of options from orange juice to travel destinations is endless, including your next all-inclusive vacation in the Riviera Maya. To help with your research and narrow down your choices, we would like to provide you with a few tips on how to sort through the options and pick the right all-inclusive plan for you.
Our Top 5 Suggestions: How To Choose Your Riviera Maya All-Inclusive Resort
1. Resort Reviews
Websites such as TripAdvisor and even social networks such as Facebook can provide you with first-hand descriptions and resort reviews from people who have visited the places you want to see. Reading a variety of reviews from sources outside the hotel website helps give you a clearer picture of what to expect. About.com travel guides suggest considering a resort when the review has more than 20 ratings and an average of 3.5 or higher -out of 5.
2. All-inclusive Vacations
Knowing exactly what is included in your all-inclusive vacation is important. You will need to know what is available and what services are included to plan accordingly. Choosing a resort in the Riviera Maya, for example, that includes all your food, drinks, accommodations, tax, tips, and activities will let you plan ahead and allow you to simply kick-back and relax when you get to your destination.
3. Near the Resort
Consider the surrounding areas of the resort of your choice. Since you’ll be traveling to another country, you might want to enjoy a few tours and attractions in the area. The proximity of your all-inclusive resort to the most visited destinations around the area can be the added advantage to your vacation. Even if the resort you choose has plenty of activities, being able to visit Mayan ruins, shopping centers or nightclub options is a major advantage.
4. Vacation Packages
In this competitive world, all resorts and hotels are continuously working to improve, making a visitor’s choice that much more difficult. To help you make your decision, consider reviewing the available packages on the resort’s website and examine what the travel industry calls “the added value” in things such as free airport transportation or family vacation packages where kids stay free.
5. Accreditations & Awards
To help make your final choice and click that “book now” button, see what the experts are saying about your resort. Visit the resort’s web pages to find accreditations, associations and awards. Things such as being chosen Traveler’s Choice Winner or being associated with certain organizations can distinguish one resort from all the others. For something truly unique, consider visiting an all-inclusive resort with a little something extra, like being in the middle of the jungle or stay at a green resort.
Whenever you feel a resort is the right fit for you, book your all-inclusive vacation and start packing for your trip.
