New statistics indicate that visitors are increasingly keen on staying at one of Cancun’s massive all-inclusives. As travel numbers soar, here’s why many tourists prefer resorts to other accommodations.

All-Inclusives Gain Popularity Among Travelers This Summer

Cancun is the most popular international destination for American and Canadian travelers this year, despite alarming travel warnings and record sargassum levels.

With millions of travelers expected to flock to Cancun this year, new figures reveal that a growing number of visitors are opting for the comfort and practicality of all-inclusive resorts.

While travelers have always opted for all-inclusives over other accommodations, such as European-style hotels, this year, the number of travelers choosing resorts is expected to increase by 10%.

Despite being home to dozens of luxurious all-inclusive resorts, Cancun’s world-class properties are reporting record occupancy rates, with most rooms sold out.

Many firms, such as Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, have reported average occupancy rates of 85% or more, sending average nightly rates skyrocketing.

Even so, travelers can’t seem to get enough of Cancun’s world-class all-inclusive resorts, which will continue to outpace other accommodations in popularity this year.

Here’s Why Travelers Love Cancun’s All-Inclusives

With growing concern over safety and sargassum, all-inclusive resorts provide the perfect venue for a relaxing and hassle-free getaway.

Aside from offering travelers a safe place to stay, featuring around-the-the-clock security and police protection, all-inclusive resorts are also packed with fun amenities, both inside and out.

Sargassum, which ranks as one of the main concerns facing travelers this year, isn’t an issue in Cancun’s massive all-inclusives, which usually offer at least several outdoor pools and even water parks.

Many are also famous for their pampering spas, which offer a relaxing experience that is perfect for couples.

While generally more expensive than other accommodations, all-inclusives can be a great deal for budget-conscious travelers thanks to the range of perks they offer.

From food and drink to entertainment, guests can spend the day relaxing by the pool without having to worry about where to eat.

When it comes to entertainment, all-inclusives offer daily shows and performances, meaning guests don’t have to opt for costly tours or excursions. 

A growing number of famous Cancun properties also offer a taste of local culture; after all, Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean are renowned for their Mayan heritage, not to mention some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
