The world of All-Inclusive Cancun hotels can be expensive, but not everyone visiting Cancun has endless dollars to splash. Contrary to popular belief, All-Inclusive resorts aren’t only for the wealthy, and Cancun has some great budget options that may just surprise you.
Although there are plenty of reasons to visit downtown Cancun, most visitors understandably head straight for the beach. The following wallet-friendly Hotel Zone beach resorts each offer competitive pricing and all the facilities you need to make the most of your precious vacation time in the Mexican Caribbean.
GR Caribe by Solaris
Notable for its European-style architecture, the white-walled and red-roofed GR Caribe by Solaris is a feast for the eyes. And guests won’t be disappointed when they step inside, with carved-wood furniture in the lobby and classically elegant decor in the 200 rooms and suites.
The hotel is located near the southern end of the Hotel Zone, making getting to and from Cancun International Airport a breeze. It’s situated on an attractive stretch of beach where guests can just relax, or enjoy the outdoor spa, pools, and jacuzzis. Alternatively, there’s also a nearby dock where guests can enjoy kayaking, pedal boats, and windsurfing.
