Beach lovers from all over the world sing the praises of the Riviera Maya, the portion of Mexico's Caribbean coast that extends for miles south of Cancun. It may not get as much press as its northern neighbor, but this area is filled with authentic, laid-back towns that are happy to cater to tourists. Want to see it for yourself — for less? Here are our tips for finding excellent all-inclusive Riviera Maya vacation packages at a great price.
Keep your vacation to 3 nights
It would be nice if vacations were a month long, right? The reality is that most of us don't get that much vacation time, so we often have to make the most of short trips. This unfortunate fact can actually be a boon when searching for all-inclusive Riviera Maya vacation packages — quick trips cost less, and you'll have a greater variety to choose from within your budget.
Stay clear of winter trips
Though cold winter winds can be reason enough to take an all-inclusive beach trip to Mexico, try to resist the urge to go from December through May. That's because the high season drives prices up and availability down. You'll have a much cheaper, quieter and easier experience if you plan to go when the masses have cleared out. And though it will be a few degrees hotter and with occasional rain showers, summer and fall are still excellent times to experience Mexico's Caribbean coast.
Look at lesser-known towns
We've all heard of Tulum, with its cliffside Mayan ruins, and Playa del Carmen, with its quirky downtown. But what about Akumal, Xpu-Ha or even the fishing village of Puerto Moreles? Be sure you consider accommodations options in these towns, and you'll find many more choices for cheap all-inclusive Riviera Maya vacation packages.
