The Mexican Caribbean is by no means lacking in the resort department, with hundreds of options to choose from throughout the region.
There are resorts in the numerous vacation destinations along the coast to fit any budget or taste, and some are better than others, even award-winning.
Some of these Mexican Caribbean resorts are even considered the best in Mexico, according to a new report from Conde Nast.
Mexican Caribbean Destinations With Award Winners
Hotels in two different Mexican Caribbean cities made it to the list of the top 10 hotels in Mexico.
Two hotels in Tulum, Hotel Bardo and Nomade, made the list, coming in at numbers 4 and 7, respectively.
The other hotel that made the list is also located in the Riviera Maya región, in Playa del Carmen, and made it to number 5 on the list.

Tulum, which is less than two hours from Cancun Airport, has a lot to offer not just in the luxury hotel department but as a vacation destination too, and it isn’t just the amazing beaches that attract thousands of travelers every year.
Mayan ruins, cenotes, a charming town, and so much more await travelers in Tulum.
And getting there will soon be easier than ever once the Maya Train and the Tulum Airport are completed in December.

Visiting Playa Del Carmen
Playa del Carmen, only about an hour from Cancun Airport, has long been a popular Mexican Caribbean vacation destination and continues to grow in popularity.
It’s home to beautiful beaches, a more laid-back vibe than larger destinations like Cancun, great nightlife, and amazing coral reefs that bring snorkelers and divers from all over the world.
And only a boat ride away from Playa del Carmen, visitors can also explore the island paradise of Cozumel too.

Getting To The Mexican Caribbean
Cancun International Airport services millions of passengers every year, not only because Cancun is the most popular destination in the Mexican Caribbean but because there are so many other destinations too.
Currently, it is the main hub for visitors traveling to any of these destinations, with massive international connectivity, particularly from the U.S.
But come December, when the Maya Train is completed, travel in the Mexican Caribbean will forever be changed, and getting to these places will be even easier.
