The Gran Porto Real, an all-inclusive resort in Playa del Carmen, sits on a protected cove with calm waters ideal for swimming. It’s one of many features that make the property so family-friendly. Kids can play mini golf, “giant” chess, or enroll in supervised activity clubs, while adults enjoy oceanfront spa treatments and happy-hour specials. The resort’s giant freshwater pool also offers something for everyone: complimentary scuba diving lessons, in-pool wet lounge chairs, and palapa snack bars.

As part of the all-inclusive package, you can enjoy unlimited dining at any of Gran Porto Real’s eight restaurants. Albatros offers buffet and a la carte options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so it's one of the more popular places at the resort. Il Pescatore serves Italian specialties on an open-air patio, and you can get low-calorie and vegetarian options at the rooftop Health and Sushi Bar. After dinner, there is nightly entertainment, and the All-Inclusive Club has games and self-serve drinks.

Although spa treatments are not included with this Getaway, if you’re looking to pamper yourself, there's the hot rock massage ($109 USD for 50 minutes) and Mayan mud wrap ($85 for 50 minutes). The resort’s junior suites are also relaxing places—they have private balconies and walk-in showers.

Playa del Carmen, Mexico: White Beaches Bordering Ancient Mayan Ruins

Located about 45 miles south of Cancún on the tip of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, Playa del Carmen is a laid-back beach town known for the 2-mile-long, all-pedestrian Fifth Avenue. Running along the ocean, the street is lined with sidewalk cafés, boutiques with handcrafted wares, rum and Cuban cigar stores, and a carnival-like atmosphere.

Those wishing to explore the warm Caribbean waters can charter a boat and snorkel past the colorful coral and indignant sea turtles. For a taste of the area’s early civilizations, check out the massive archaeological park Xcaret, where you can climb Mayan ruins and visit a replica of a Mayan village.
