ISO All-Inclusive Resort on Pacific Coast of Mexico for (Older) Family Trip

Jump to last reply

I'm ring-leading the planning for a week-long family trip we're looking to take in March or April 2014.

Our party is likely to include me and my boyfriend (late 30s), my sister (mid-30s), my cousin and her husband (early 30s) and their 2-year old, my aunt (60) and my parents (70).

I'm thinking an all-inclusive resort on the Pacific coast of Mexico will be the easiest thing for us logistically. We will be coming from Washington, DC, Denver, CO, and Seattle, WA respectively.

Everyone in the group enjoys lounging on the beach or at the pool, swimming/snorkeling, sightseeing, and eating good food. (My parents are still very mobile, so accessibility is not an issue.)

I'm not sure of the specific budget yet, but given the diversity of the group, I don't think we can afford anything TOO fancy. Guidance on how much we should look to spend for a quality place that is clean, either modern or "dripping with Mexican charm", and has good food, would be welcomed.

I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions from this forum for good resorts to consider and any other tips or recommendations as we kick the planning into high gear. Thank you!!
