When looking for a budget friendly escape, Mexico is always a great option. Being a 3-5 hour plane ride away from Canada, depending where you are and where you choose to go, the all inclusive resorts, beach and sunny weather make it a prime pick for a quick and relaxing vacation. This was actually my first time going to an all inclusive resort, and though all inclusive definitely has its perks, after day 4 I was itching for a different variety of food. Laying out by the beach or the pool gave me the chance to catch up on “fun” reading (aka something not school related) and sleep. I would definitely go again if I ever wanted to jet off somewhere for a quick fix, but maybe this time do a bit more exploring and try at least one excursion. If given more time, I would have checked out the ruins in Tulum and Turtle Bay.
