    Mexico and Central America Hotel Travel Guide

    Mexico and Central America are popular areas for tourists particularly during the summer. With friendly people, excellent food, luxurious resorts, and great weather, it's easy to see why.

    Read More


    One of the great draws of a vacation to Mexico is how affordable it can be. All-inclusive packages for resorts at discount prices are abundant in Mexico. Many times, these packages include not only food and accommodations, but they offer airfare as well. Many of these resorts have a beachfront location. These laid-back getaways include locations such as the Riviera Maya. The Riviera Maya runs along the Gulf of Mexico and features cool, white-sand beaches and clear waters that are great for swimming and snorkeling.

    Pretty much everyone loves to eat, and Mexican cuisine is very popular. True Mexican food isn't just tacos and enchiladas. From mole, a sauce made with chocolate and toasted chilies, to a variety of seafood dishes in coastal areas, the cuisine of Mexico is tantalizing to the taste buds.

    By visiting ancient ruins, such as Tulum and Chichen Itza, history buffs can feel as though they've stepped back in time. These areas house the remains of the pyramids and stone houses of some of the earliest residents of Mexico.

    Central America

    Central America shares many of the charms of Mexico, such as affordability and excellent beaches, but it has a distinct and separate charm all it's own. Central America has two high seasons and two low seasons for tourists. High season for tourism in Central America lasts the months of November through April and June through August. You can also see significant crowds in Central America around Easter and Christmas. The low season for Central American tourism includes the month of May as well as the months from September through October. During this time, the crowds are more manageable. Many hotels use the low season to renovate rooms, so hotel rooms may be a bit more difficult to find during this time.

    Like Mexico, Central America has an abundance of things to see and do. Here, you can visit Mayan ruins or travel through ancient jungles. For those that love the beach, a trip to Honduras or Belize will do wonders. If visiting a cosmopolitan city is more your thing, check out Panama City with its beautiful skyline and friendly people.

    "Most relaxing resort and amazing staff"
    First off the aroma when you first walk in and throughout the whole resort is incredible it is so refreshing! The staff is incredibleeee!! They were so accommodating and attentive. MB and Azur were my favorite restaurants MB for dinner and Azur for lunch - Siete was the buffet which was amazing food and by far my boyfriends favorite along with the BBQ they have outside which was delicious and fresh. They even have a crepe stand on your way in from the pool and beach around 4 which was awesome - the swim up bar pool was my favorite and where we hung out most of the day- the beach was incredible and the water is beautiful ! Everything was just beautiful and if your looking for a relaxing vacation with excellent service this is the place to be

    "Nice hotel but not the best beach"
    We just returned from a week long stay. Overall the experience was great. We stayed at Excellence Playa Mujeres on our honeymoon and bragged to our family abt how great it was so we expected no less at another Excellence hotel and this time accompanied by the family we bragged to. The resort is very lively in some areas (main pool and beach area) and it also has some very quiet areas (lazy pool and other segregated pools) so there's a place for you to hang out depending on your mood for the day. The food is not the greatest but I think that's more of a personal opinion. Believe you just have to try it. Staff is really nice all around. Always smiling and greeting you no matter what they're doing (serving drinks or painting or cleaning). One rough start though. Our first rooms were horrible. Smelled really bad and the view was to an alley (building 9). We called and explained the situation and were told to go to the front desk the next day and it would be sorted out. We went and asked for specific areas and they were very helpful. We got great rooms with decent views and still able to hear a lot of the night entertainment. First rooms we were able to hear the delivery trucks conversations in the alleys. Not a very impressive start. All in all very great vacation. BUT we probably won't return because of the beach. We love to stay out and relax by the beach but this beach does not compare to Cancun. The color. Although the sand here is super soft and very nice to walk on.

    It was our first family trip to playa and it was just absolutely great! The only thing is that the beach is a little rocky, however u can still have a great time in the resort alone and the cenote that's inside the resort makes up for the beach.
