Looking for a Secrets The Vine Cancun Day Pass? One of the beauties (and relatively unknown) benefits of low-season travel is that resorts aren’t as busy as they are in peak season and they make products such as Resort Day Passes available.
Just in case you don’t know what they are, a Day Pass offers access to a resort’s swimming pools, lounge areas, restaurants and bars for a specified period of time.
This means you can experience all the luxury of an all-inclusive, five-star resort (minus the guest room) without committing to a full week or staying overnight.
Why Get a Day Pass in Cancun?
Exploring Secrets The Vine on a Resort Day Pass is perfect for planning a future vacation or celebrating a major life event such as an anniversary, birthday, honeymoon or wedding.
A Cancun Day Pass is also handy if you have a long layover at Cancun International Airport (CUN) and you’d rather relax in luxury instead of an uncomfortable airport lounge chair).
If you’re travelling through Cancun, a top choice for a Resort Day Pass is adults-only Secrets The Vine Cancun Resort & Spa located on one of the best stretches of beach in Cancun and home to the Unlimited Luxury vacation concept.
Here’s what you need to know about getting this Cancun Day Pass!
Secrets The Vine Cancun Location and Amenities
Secrets The Vine Cancun overlooks the Caribbean Sea on one of the nicest and safest swimming beaches in Cancun (watch for the red flag which signifies dangerous swimming conditions).
It offers three infinity pools, curtained Bali beds, beach hammocks, beach loungers, outdoor showers and change rooms and spacious pool lounge areas.
The resort is adults-only and draws an upscale, mature crowd rather than rowdy Spring Breakers. It’s one of the most romantic resorts in Cancun.

All-Inclusive Dining and Drinks
When it comes to dining, you can choose from six á la carte gourmet restaurants, a buffet and a café. Reservations are never required and there isn’t usually a wait, except occasionally at breakfast.
For Italian Cuisine, try Nebbiolo Ristorante (open in the evening) or for beachfront dining during the day, the Sea Salt Grill is ideal for seafood. Don’t miss the calamari and ceviche.
The Lobby Bar and beachfront bars offer all-inclusive premium drinks, beer, wine and virtually any cocktail you can dream up.
Cost of a Secrets The Vine Cancun Day Pass
Here are the costs for a Resort Day, Night or Full Day Pass as at December 21, 2022 and are subject to change without notice.
Be sure to contact the resort directly to book your Cancun Day Pass and confirm availability and prices:
- Day Pass: $120 USD per person, from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm.
- Night Pass: $150 USD per person, from 6:00 pm until 12:00 am.
- Full Day Pass: $180 USD per person, from 9:00 am until 12:00 am.
Although at first glance this might seem pricey and you might be tempted to think you’d be better off getting a hotel room for the night, you need to factor in check-in and check-out times.
It’s also worth factoring costs elsewhere (bottle of water $3.00, glass of wine $9.00, cocktails $10.00 each, snacks, a couple of gourmet meals $25-$75, coffee/tea, appetizers, poolside fitness classes and pool towel service) and then it starts to make sense and look like good value.
Of course, if you’re likely to sip only water all day, it probably isn’t as worthwhile unless you really, really want to lounge in luxurious comfort.
Note: The above prices don’t include a guest room. When occupancy is above 85%, they limit the number of day passes available. During peak holiday periods such as Christmas, New Years and Easter there might be No Day Passes available.
It also does not include tips, other services such as access to Pevonia Spa, the Preferred Club area or all wines in the wine cellar.
Prices can change at any time. So double-check prices before you visit.
Secrets The Vine Cancun Address: Kukulcán Boulevard Km. 14.5

Another Day Pass: Hyatt Zilara Cancun
Another of the best day passes in Cancun is available at The Hyatt Zilara Cancun. One of our favourite all-inclusive hotels in Mexico, Hyatt Zilara Cancun is blissfully adults-only and is set on the widest beach in Cancun.
That’s good news if there’s a seaweed problem during sargassum season. This luxury resort also features a sprawling infinity pool with lots of lounge chairs.
They also have excellent evening entertainment and with a Day Pass extending to 11:00 pm you’ll be able to catch the show.
Much as with Secrets The Vine, the Hyatt Cancun only offers day passes when the resort isn’t at full occupancy. There are also black out periods. So check before making firm plans.
Cost for a Day Pass at Hyatt Zilara Cancun: $199 USD
Hours: 9:00 am to 11:00 pm

Vine Cancun seems to be a best place to relax in luxury. We would love to stay at this place and enjoy the sea and pool! The pool looks very inviting!
What a great idea. Wish more places around the world had this type of opportunity. Pricey yes. But if one wants to indulge a bit, it would be great.
This is a beautiful looking resort

What a great idea, get a Resort Day Pass and luxuriate at The Secrets of the Vine Cancun with its sleek wine bar, Bali beds, pool lounges and wonderful views of the sea
What a gorgeous resort! Love the pool as well as the lounge. It could be well worth the investment when you consider what you might otherwise be spending on drinks, umbrella rentals, etc. Even bottled water adds up if you drink enough of it–and I sure do.
