Figuring out the recipe for a perfect vacation can be tricky. Too much relaxation can leave you feeling leaden, while on-the-go getaways might return you more worn-out than revived. But it doesn't take a travel connoisseur to see that with its mix of rich history, natural wonders and beautiful beaches, and stellar food, Mexico's Riviera Maya nails it.

Playa del Carmen's Encanto El Faro resort sits squarely on the shores of the glimmering blue-green Caribbean Sea and one-bedroom suites are decked out with splashy tropical floral prints, terracotta-hued walls, granite kitchens, and spacious balconies. And it's seriously convenient, since nearly everything is included: three meals a day, booze and beer (both at restaurants and bars and in the well-stocked mini bar in your room), and water sports like snorkeling and kayaking.

During the day, whip up an adventure and take a ten-minute car ride to the Xcaret ecopark, where you can splash and swim with—and even lay a kiss on—playful dolphins. Or, drive a bit farther to marvel at the 600 AD era ruins of Coba, where you can take in lovely views of Lake Macanxoc from the top of the pyramid known as Temple of the Church. Scuba fans should explore the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef—the second largest coral system in the world (keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles). And steps away from the resort is Playa del Carmen's main drag, Quinto Avenida, a bustling, pedestrian-only strip of restaurants, cafes, and shops. Stir it all together and what do you get? A vacation that will likely leave you hankering for seconds.

  • "We spent most of our time down at the beach and it was amazing! We loved how it was so close to everything—we would just take off walking and see where we ended up."
