Looking for an all-inclusive resort day pass in Cancun? A Secrets The Vine Day Pass might be exactly what you’re looking for.
You can experience all the luxury of an all-inclusive, five-star Cancun resort (minus the guest room) without committing to a full week or staying overnight.
Here’s what you need to know about getting this all-inclusive Cancun Day Pass!
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.
It’s located on one of the best stretches of beach in Cancun and is home to the Unlimited Luxury vacation concept.
What is an All-inclusive 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, an all-inclusive Day Pass offers access to a resort’s swimming pools, lounge areas, non-motorized water sports, restaurants and bars for a specified period of time.
It includes unlimited food and drink as well as tips.
It does not include access to an overnight room, specialty wines/cocktails or a spa service. There may also be other exclusions.
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. Just 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.

A Secrets Resort Day Pass is also a good option is you’re worried about mosquitos in Cancun. Unlike spending a day swimming in cenotes in the Yucatan, you won’t be bothered by mosquitos at this luxury resort.
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 food, 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 drinks, beer, wine and virtually any cocktail you can dream up.
On Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos), St. Patrick’s Day and other special occasions Secrets The Vine often hosts special theme parties that you can participate in.
Cost of a Secrets The Vine Cancun Day Pass
Here are the costs for a Secrets The Vine Resort Day Pass as at August 18, 2023. They are subject to change without notice.
Be sure to contact the Front Desk up to 24 hours in advance to confirm availability and book your Cancun Day Pass:
- 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.
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.
