Tips for the Perfect Cancun Vacation

Melissa Zaidman, Vacation Consultant

Cancun is one of The Tropical Travelers’ favorite destinations. Every trip makes us fall more in love with the tropical paradise. With a mix of historic culture and world renowned nightlife, Cancun offers something for every traveler. The gateway to the Mayan world, Cancun offers historical tours of the Mayan Ruins, Chichen Itza and Tulum, and an in-depth encounter tour to Coba. For the party lover, Cancun is famous for its often outrageous and always entertaining nightlife. They even offer a bar hopping tour so you can visit some of the more popular spots in one night.


Typically, I tend to choose more quiet, laid back accommodations, but, on my most recent trip to Cancun, I decided to try a different vibe. With a trendy, lively atmosphere, Secrets The Vine, is different than any other I have experienced. Secrets is located in the heart of the strip, in the center of the action and boasts breathtaking views, a stunning beach, delicious food, and spacious rooms. The upgrade to the Preferred Club is a must do at Secrets The Vine. This extra perk gives you access to the rooftop pool and an additional restaurant with beautiful views and your own butler – who was over the top amazing!

Cancun has near perfect year-round weather, and the weather during our trip did not disappoint.  We visited in mid-April and the temperature was in the low 80s with breezy evenings and very little humidity. The perfect climate for a resort within walking distance to the restaurants and shops. We loved being able to walk wherever we wanted to go.

The amenities at Secrets The Vine are second to none. Do not miss the spa, the couples massage is out of this world! You will also want to experience the daily wine tastings for that extra luxury feel. The six a la carte restaurants, buffet and café offer an array of indulgent local and international fare. For breakfast, the buffet is the best. Try the shrimp ceviche or chicken sandwich at The Grill on the 12th floor for lunch. But my favorite restaurant was Dragon for dinner. They have a rib appetizer that is to die for and they keep the sake flowing.  The poolside wait staff are efficient and helpful. We took full advantage of the food and drink service on a daily basis

Secrets The Vine is very lively and social. My husband and I met new and interesting couples every day from all around the world. Nightlife abounds and we never felt the need to seek outside entertainment. We had a blast at this resort and wouldn’t hesitate to return or send singles, wedding groups, or fun social couples. I would absolutely give Secrets The Vine 5 stars!
