Make it Mexico for an epic summer getaway

by Sylvia Pownall

THIS has to be the deal of the summer – two weeks all-inclusive in Mexico for less than €93 per day.

If you think about it, how much money do you spend on your summer holiday? First off there’s the actual cost of getting there: flights, baggage, transfers and your accommodation for the duration.

Then once you get to your resort and you add meals, snacks and all your drinks for the week – it really adds up doesn’t it?

All-inclusive packages are growing in popularity, with pretty much everything included from food to drinks and entertainment too.

The best thing about this type of holiday is that you can budget exactly what you’ll spend on your trip before you go. It means you only need money for souvenirs and any other extras and that’s it.

The RIU Lupita on Mexico’s Caribbean Coast comes with a trio of pools, the main one flanked by gardens.

There are four restaurants, including a Mexican a la carte and a steakhouse. Plus, live shows are on most nights of the week.

The hotel is surrounded by tropical gardens, and there’s a free five-minute shuttle bus to the sandy beach.

If it’s retail therapy you’re after, it’s just 15 minutes’ walk to the shops of Qinta Avenue in Playa del Carmen, a mile-long bustling strip perfect for evening strolls.

With an average 340 days of sunshine per year this mainly ex-pat resort near Cancun was voted in the top 10 places to visit in 2017.

The beaches along this stretch of coast are gorgeous – from Playa del Carmen all the way south to Tulum and north to the spectacular shores of Maroma Beach.

Splash your way among the stalagmites and stalactites of Rio Secreto. The guided tour of the Riviera Maya’s ‘secret river’ winds through a portion of a vast network of caves and cenotes.

This deal at the RIU Lupita in Mexico comes in at just under €93pp per day.

You’ll get your flights, transfers and 20kg baggage included and your room for the two weeks at the hotel on an all-Inclusive basis – and here’s the best bit.

All Inclusive at the RIU Lupita means your breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner are included in the price you pay AS WELL AS local and imported drinks.

This hotel is 24 hour all Inclusive so it offers snacks and drinks around the clock.

The only question is for less than €93 per day, can you afford not to go? I’d be quick about making up my mind if I were you.
