All-inclusive vacation in Mexico? Here are the top 7 key elements to look for when booking your resort. This blog is a flash from the past from 2005 when we visited Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Breakfast in Bed
Breakfast in bed is so relaxing because you don’t have to get dressed to eat. Ordering our food preferences the night before saves us time in the morning. We wake up generally at the same time every day; therefore we can wake up just a few minutes before the food arrives.
Different resorts in Mexico have indoor tubs that are the size of Jacuzzis with jets and lots of legroom where two people can be in there at the same time. It is a lot of fun to fill them with bubbles. On one adventure the bubbles got carried away and overflowed on to the floor. This happens a lot because there was a floor drain next to the tub.
All-inclusive Patio Private Meals
Sometimes we like to have private meals on our patio. Find out if the resort will wheel in a table and chairs with lunch.
Outdoor Private Bed
Private patios with big lounge beds are wonderful to take afternoon naps on. At night we lay on them to look up at the stars.
All-inclusive In-room Beverages
A must item for us is in-room beverages. Some resorts refill refrigerators daily with water. We drink a lot of water and love having it restocked daily. In the past, we stayed at a resort that had a wall liquor dispenser and then mixing soda in the refrigerator. That trip we drank a lot of tequila.
Beach or poolside cabanas are great to spend more time outside yet be out of the direct sun.
Cooling off in a swimmable water source is a bonus. We contact resorts to find out if the beach is walkable, what are the water temperatures, are the waters consist of waves or smooth. Another item we ask regarding the beach is to know if it is a private beach or if there are vendors. We like quiet and vender free like in Roatan.
