All inclusive advice please

Trying to plan a trip for several couples and am looking for an all inclusive.

Need a resort with great snorkeling, music and swim up bar. We also enjoy casinos and if there are things to do outside the resort that would be great..

I don't stay at resorts, so can't help with specifics. However, the first thing you need to do is decide what part of Mexico.

The west coast or the Yucatan?

There are literally hundreds of AI resorts in Mexico. Where exactly do you want to stay; Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Cancun, Cozumel, Tulum, Akumel?

Do you want adult's only, couples only, family friendly? What budget do you have? Adult/Couple only resorts will cost more.

Most all resorts have swim-up bars and play some kind of music around the pool.

I have not seen casinos in Caribbean Mexico. However, there are tons of things to see and do off the resort. What sort of things are you really interested in?

Adults only AIs in the Riviera Maya area that you should checkout would be--Iberostar Paraiso Grand, Secrets Maroma, Royal Playa del Carmen. There are a ton more, but we need to know what you want first.
The Royal is right in the town of Playa del Carmen so it's a five minute walk to main street in Playa.
No matter where you stay in that area you can tour the ruins, zip line, snorkle in cenotes, etc.

I would look to the Caribbean side/Riviera Mayan for the types of resorts you want. There are simply many more of that type available (Cancun, Playa del Carmen) then on the west coast (Cabo, PV) plus better snorkeling.

Gambling's not really much the thing in Mexico, I'm not aware of any Vegas-type casinos. Actually I thought gambling was illegal, but someone please correct me if that's wrong.

Hi yes, resorts geared towards adults will have great pools and most have swim up bars, I'd try searching for adults only resorts- you can do it on Just go into the search feature, check off adults only and mexico, and it will come up with a list for you. You can narrow it down to a specific area if put a city name in the keyword, but I'd just do the general search and see what pops up. Then you can compare the resorts amenities and pricing.
