What are Cancun resort day passes?

But first, let’s clarify what Cancun Day passes are.

Cancun resort day passes are a great way to enjoy the amenities of an all-inclusive resort without having to stay overnight.

There are many different types of day passes available — from family-friendly packages to adults-only resorts — you can choose the one that best suits your needs.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing day by the pool or an action-packed day filled with activities, there’s a Cancun resort day pass for you.

Basically, there are no beach clubs in Cancun, and paying for a day pass in a hotel in Cancun it’s the only way that you can enjoy the facilities of an equipped beach.

Oops, sorry, there is actually one Beach Club in Cancun that is not a hotel, and that is the Hard Rock Cafe, which is on a great beach and it also has a paying parking lot where you can leave your car safely parked.

But if you’re looking for something more lively and active with a discounted entrance fee, consider swapping the all-inclusive day pass with a Go Cancun City Pass. While it doesn’t include health clubs or a pool bar, it’s a great way to explore the city as well.

Cancun travel FAQs

Does Hard Rock hotel offer day passes?

At the time of writing this article, Hard Rock Hotel in Cancun doesn’t offer day passes in order to limit the number of guests in the hotel spaces. However, I would suggest you should ask in case they change their policy by the time you are traveling.

Does Temptation Cancun offer day passes?

Temptation is a unique all-inclusive resort offering optional clothing and an exotic experience. In order to protect the privacy of its guests day and/or night passes are not available at Temptations Resort Cancun.

What is the best time to travel to Cancun?

The best time to travel to Cancun depends on what kind of traveler you are.

If you’re looking to escape the cold weather of winter and early spring, December to April is your best bet.

The weather is warm and sunny, and there are plenty of activities and events going on. However, because this is peak season (hello, Spring Break!) you’re looking at higher hotel and flight prices.

If you’re a budget traveler looking to save money, I recommend traveling during the low season from May to November.

The weather is still nice, but there are smaller crowds which means you’ll find better deals on flights, accommodations, and activities.

How do you get from the airport to your resort?

The Cancun International Airport is one of the busiest airports in Mexico, serving millions of passengers each year. It’s a short drive from the resorts in the Cancun Hotel Zone.

There are a few different ways to get from the airport to your resort. I recommend that you book private airport transport.

It’s the most comfortable and private way to get there, and it’s cheaper than a taxi! And there is no Uber in Cancun, if you were wondering.

What are the best restaurants in Cancun?

Cancun has some amazing restaurants to eat at. From delicious Italian to authentic Mexican, there’s an eatery out there for everyone.

While it’s hard to pinpoint exactly which ones I love the most, these are three of my favorites:

Whether you’re staying at an all-inclusive resort or not, be sure to check out these great restaurants in Cancun.
