With thousands of miles of coastline and world-famous beach towns bookending both sides of the country, Mexico regularly draws travelers from around the globe seeking sun, sand, and relaxation. It’s no surprise, then, that the country has perfected the art of the all-inclusive. In Mexico, all-inclusive resorts have evolved to match the modern-day traveler; rather than offering the same cookie-cutter experience at hotel after hotel, the best all-inclusive resorts in Mexico are so thoughtfully curated, it’s impossible not to find a property that feels tailor-made for you.

Whether you're seeking an adults-only retreat complete with hushed hideaways and plenty of pampering or an immersive wellness experience complete with sound baths and vegan cuisine, Mexico has an all-inclusive resort to match. From the sugary shores of the Mexican Caribbean, to the rugged desert-meets-Pacific landscape of Baja, and literally everywhere in between, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to booking the perfect all-inclusive for you. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best all-inclusive resorts in Mexico for your 2023 trip, all of them prime for unplugging, rejuvenating, or dialing up the energy.

Mahekal Beach Resort gives guests the best of both worlds: not only is it perched on one of the longest stretches of beachfront in Riviera Maya, but it is also just a few steps from the buzzy energy of Playa del Carmen. The boutique all-inclusive resort features a collection of palapa-topped bungalows in different settings, from beachfront to poolside and jungle, as well as Beach House King Plunge Pools that guests will never want to leave.

The resort is fully all-inclusive, but guests do have the option to opt out of the plan if they would rather make room to enjoy the lively restaurant and nightlife scene of Playa del Carmen, which is just around the corner from the resort.

This all-inclusive does its best to make sure that everyone in the party feels like they're coming home—plus a few added surprises for flair and panache.

For those whose ideal vacation involves bringing it down a notch, a day of reprieve at the two-story Zen Spa, with 15 treatment rooms and a salon, is just what the doctor ordered.

Kissed by lapping, turquoise-colored waves and peppered with languidly swaying palms, this beach is the stuff Mexico postcards are made of.

A cult following of loyal devotees have been singing the praises of this stunningly beautiful all-inclusive resort for years.

But it's high time they share the wealth of beauty this resort has to offer, because the views truly are that incredible.

The 4,500-acre resort is within a gated community surrounded by slate-colored mountains, overlooking the indigo-colored Sea of Cortez. Perched overlooking the Bay of Danzante, the views from Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto are a mix of towering mountains wrapped in puffy clouds, and a bay speckled with conical-peaked islands as far as the eye can see. The remote atmosphere of the resort, coupled with its all-inclusive amenities, are what make this one of the most unique all-inclusive resorts in Mexico. A new $42 million renovation at the resort resulted in the addition of 158 new rooms, as well as a new penthouse and oceanfront suites that overlook the bay.

About Meagan Drillinger, Your Mexico All-Inclusive Resorts Guide

Mexico has been more than a beat to me over the past 10 years—it's been, quite literally, a second home. My adventures across Mexico have taken me from northern Baja to southern Chiapas, from remote beaches to pulsing cities, from dusty backpacker routes and hostels to the high thread counts and Champagne bars at the best resorts in the country. Today I call Puerto Vallarta my second home when I'm not off on assignment. My life as a travel writer has also taken me beyond Mexico and across the borders of Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Central America, and Australia. I spend more than half the year on the road, with my passport and my carry-on as my most prized (and only) possessions. In addition to writing for Forbes Vetted, I am also a contributing Mexico editor for Travel Weekly magazine. You can find more of my work in Travel + Leisure, Afar, Lonely Planet, Business Insider, and others.
