The Mexican Caribbean encompasses a vast expanse of land, though most of the tourism in this region centers around Cancun, Cozumel, and Playa del Carmen. Because there is so much space to vacation in, those who know what to expect in each location will have an easier time choosing their accommodations.

Before you make final arrangements, be aware of the taxes associated with accommodations. Remember to factor in the 16 percent Value-Added Tax (VAT) and the 3 percent hospitality tax. Traveling in the off season, around September through mid-December, will save you up to 25 percent on lodgings.
