I am wondering why people choose to stay in an all-inclusive hotel when visiting the area. I have been to Playa del Carmen several times and could never see myself staying at the hotel all day and night when there are so many great places to eat in town. There are also many attractions, such as Akumal Bay, Tulum, Coba, etc. that are worth seeing. I would like to know what the benefits are to stay in an all-inclusive resort. Perhaps I just enjoy eating at different places and getting out and seeing the area.
