. Most Mexico resorts offer travelers luxurious accommodations at more affordable prices than comparable resorts in the United States
Many Mexican resorts are all-inclusive. This means you pay one price and all of your accommodations, food and some other expenditures are included. Most of the time, there is a limit on alcoholic beverages in an all-inclusive package.
In most Mexico resorts the staff will speak English. However, this is not always the case so it helps to brush up on your Spanish before you go.
The official currency of Mexico is the peso, but you'll find the U.S. dollar is accepted at most Mexico resorts. They also will accept most major credit cards, debit cards and traveler's checks.
Even at a resort, you still shouldn't drink tap water or eat anything that has been washed in water that hasn't been purified. Drink only bottled water and avoid eating salads or beverages with ice.
The climate at Mexican resorts is almost always warm to hot. However, Mexico is large and there are many resorts, from Cabo San Lucas to Cancun. Check the forecast before you travel, but you can count on warm weather whenever you go.
