Day pass (bring the kids) to Dreams Huatulco Resort

Infinity pools, cocktails, gourmet dining — if you’d like to experience all-inclusive luxury in Huatulco, Mexico then it’s worth considering a  day pass to Dreams Huatulco Resort & Spa.  And if you don’t have time for a full day, Dreams is one of the few all-inclusive resorts in Oaxaca  that allows you to visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy all the amenities of a luxury, all-inclusive resort.  So if you’re on a cruise, headed to Puerto Escondido (110 kilometres west), Mazunte, Oaxaca City, Guatemala or the Huatulco airport, it’s a stop-over the whole family will enjoy. Read on to learn more about the costs and what’s included.

An extra bonus is that Huatulco gets 300 days of sunshine a year so it’s almost guaranteed to be perfect weather. Located on beautiful Tangolunda Bay facing one of Huatulco’s most swimmable beaches, Dreams Huatulco is part of the AMResorts group . You can read about my Day Pass to Secrets Resort & Spa Huatulco, their adults-only brand,  in my article It’s a Luxe Life in Huatulco.

This little-known deal on a day pass to Dreams Huatulco is especially great value when you factor in the all-inclusive gourmet meals, premium cocktails, soft drinks, towel service and comfy loungers plus your choice of  sparkling clean swimming pools, including two infinity pools. You also have access to water sports, fitness facilities and group activities such as pool volleyball, aerobics and more.

One of the advantages of getting a Day Pass to Dreams Resort is that this stretch of beach is one of the cleanest and most swimmable in Huatulco. If you’ve ever been caught in an undertow, it’s quite scary and can happen without notice.  The section of the sandy bay in front of Dreams Huatulco is especially calm and attracts schools of curious fish which dart in and around your feet. It’s great fun if you’re travelling with toddlers or tweens.

Once you’ve got your Day Pass to Dreams Huatulco in hand,  you can choose from six restaurants (including the World Cafe with a buffet specifically designed for kids) and enjoy unlimited beer, top shelf drinks (including wine), natural juices, bottled water and soft drinks.  All Dreams and Secrets resorts have a no-reservations dinner policy so you don’t need to worry about booking a table in advance. Consult this map of the resort to plan your day.

Tip: Register upon arrival and your kids (ages 3-12) will also get access to the Explorer’s Club, the nature-based supervised entertainment  program (space permitting).

    What a great idea! A meal AND and an adventure!

  • santafetraveler

    I have a friend who’s stayed there and loved it. I didn’t know you could get a day-pass. Interesting.

  • Suzanne Fluhr

    I like the idea of a resort day pass, especially if one is on a cruise. That’s what we should have done instead of a bus tour when our recent Azamara Southeast Asia cruise stopped at Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand.

  • sarah

    Great tip! As we are on a budget that doesn’t allow for much luxury day passes are a great option.

  • esperanza
