Day Passes: Mini Vacations within your Vacation

For the people that now call this exceptionally breathtaking little town known as Playa del Carmen home, we don’t often spend our days and nights within the confines of a resort, we live here after-all and our houses provide us with essentially a 12 month per year vacation spot. But on the odd occasion, we locals find it fun to venture within the world of the resort tourist, meet new people and enjoy the luxuries the resort has to offer.

It’s called a Day Pass, an all-inclusive (yes that’s food, drinks, access to resort amenities) ticket to a resort of your choosing and a relatively inexpensive way to try a new place out. Depending on where you decide to go the price for a Day Pass ranges on average between $50 – $100. Even if you’re staying in an all-inclusive resort on vacation for a week or two, renting a condo by the unspoiled beach or sleeping in a hostel, this too is for you and way for you to break up your usual routine, see some new sights, taste some new food and even have a good look at other places you may wish to stay on your next vacation here.

Here a few great places to start with –

Aura Wyndham Grand Bay Resort – A Preferred Boutique Adult Only All Inclusive Resort in Cozumel Mexico. Price: $75 per adult Min. 18 years
