Paradisus by Melia Cabos

The entire clan

For some, the idea of an all-inclusive screams dodgy buffets and sunburned children, but at Paradisus by Melia Cabos in Los Cabos, the stereotype is upended. Here, an oversized pool gives kiddos plenty of space to splash around, and an on-site kid’s club gives mom and dad a break, too. As a bonus, there’s an entire separate check-in area—complete with a snack bar for children at their height level—that takes some of the chaos out of family arrivals. With healthy options and even a menu crafted by a Michelin-starred chef, have a relaxing vacation… with babes in tow.

The honeymooner

If you’ve never heard of the Mayakoba region, you’re in for quite a romantic treat. Sandwiched between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen is this eco-friendly dreamland, filled with birds, monkeys, crocodiles and turtles. It’s home to many luxury properties—from Banyan Tree to Rosewood—but Fairmont Mayakoba is the only one to offer an “all-inclusive 5-star” experience. For an additional nightly fee, newlyweds can enjoy culinary and mixology creations at every on-site restaurant. Couples also benefit from jungle seclusion, as well as private beach access, en suite infinity pools and various tours, including kayaking, windsurfing and more. Though it is definitely on the pricier side, you only get married once.

The backpacker

If your post-college plans include trekking through Central America and Mexico, you’ll probably need a break from hostels after a few weeks. But since most resorts are beyond a backpacker’s budget, you’ll need to find one that’s at a manageable price point, like Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta. Featuring a taco shack, an Italian and Japanese restaurant, as well as a buffet, this inexpensive all-inclusive might not be fancy, but it definitely won’t leave you hungry. It also is only twenty minutes from the Zona Romantica, making for a cheap ride into town to explore PV’s famed art scene and nightlife.

The Instagrammer

Even if you aren’t Insta-famous, you might still enjoy snapping a pic (or 100) to stir envy in your friends back home. Though the crystal-blue waters of the Caribbean don’t require a filter, if you want a background that truly earns those double-taps, consider staying at the all-inclusive Occidental at Xcaret Destination in the Riviera Maya region. You’ll definitely have to set aside time for a photo shoot, since you can pick from an adults-only saltwater pool on the edge of a cliff; crisp, white sands on a private beach within a cove; luxe cabanas overlooking the sea; monkeys dangling in the trees behind you; parrots chirping in the lobby or traipsing across bridges in the jungle. Just make sure to bring an extra battery pack.
