You won’t find a more dramatic departure from our No. 1 spot than our next Top 10 Cancun Spring Break Resorts pick. While ME Cancun was all about the exotic, our No. 2 spot specializes in Mexico’s trademark sun and surf, while maintaining true all-ages appeal.

If you ask us, Beach Palace was made for spring break family vacations.

Top shelf drinks at your beck and call. As many glasses of Spanish, Chilean and international wine as you can lift to your lips. And your choice of tours to the sights and attractions – Chichen Itza, Isla Mujeres and more – that earned Mexico a place as one of the world’s most beloved, history-rich travel destinations!
