My girlfriend and I and planning to go to our first Mexico trip this coming August (between 19th-30th). And I was hoping some of the more experienced travelers could shine light for us. Here’s some brief info about us:
- Age: Both of us are 23 years old
- Live in Vancouver as students (so we’re a bit on a budget)
- Budget: Between $700-$900 per person
- Duration: 5-7 days
Other: Both of us are fairly inexperienced travelers (I already done some research on general safety in Mexico: drink bottled water, avoid salads, stay in the resort unless you’re with a big group, make sure you only go to the Resort shuttle bus that’s parked outside of the airport , not with some stranger in the airport). With that being said, we’re not planning on going anywhere outside of the resort. We just want to enjoy the beaches, food & meet new people.Finally, my girlfriend is pretty food sensitive. She doesn’t have food allergies, but if the food isn’t properly made or fresh she WILL get stomach issues.
And that’s about it. I guess I was hoping you’d tell me what do ya’ll think would be the best place & hotel for us to visit based on your experience. Ideally we’d love to go to a resort with other young couples so we attend to some night events.
I’ve also heard that non-all inclusive resorts are MUCH better than the all-inclusive ones. Do you feel we’d be able to fit a non all inclusive resort in our budget?
Thank you all in advance!
