    Always check with the resort to find out exactly what services and amenities are included in the daily rate, as some resorts charge extra for certain activities like spa, excursions and special occasion dining.

    The raciest and most youth-oriented of the resorts here, Temptation is all about sun, fun, and lounging by the three pools or seven jacuzzis while sipping endless margaritas. (The scene can get pretty wild, so this is definitely not the choice for couples seeking a secluded romantic vacation.)

    What Makes It Special

    • Whether you’re after a sit-down gourmet experience or more interested in grazing on snacks by the beach, meal service is around the clock
    • All rooms have private terraces or balconies
    • The resort is “topless optional,” a hard-to-find category in Mexico
    • Staff members are enthusiastic and always luring guests into games, contests, and shows
