This year, several Mexican Caribbean properties secured a spot among the 25 top resorts worldwide. It’s not unusual for resorts in the sun-soaked region to be awarded prestigious distinctions, with countless properties from Cancun to Tulum often topping the charts as some of the most luxurious in the world.

And this year’s edition of Tripadvisor’s Traveler’s Choice awards further strengthens the Mexican Caribbean’s position as a hub for luxury travel and accommodation. With these top-rated properties, travelers can expect a paradisiacal location, welcoming smiles, and unique experiences not found elsewhere.
