Hotels in Mexico vary widely in price and quality. However, don't assume that only with a five-star mega-hotel can you be assured service and security. If a large, corporate-sized hotel is what you seek, there are plenty that fit the bill. However, there are also smaller, boutique-style hotels that offer a more personal and homier touch. Smaller hotels can be luxurious and pricey, or reasonably priced for families. It all depends on what type of guest they're focused to serve.

The truth is that Mexico has been a popular, worldwide tourist destination for so long that it has hotels to fit virtually every taste and budget. If you are on a budget, you needn't worry about finding quality lodgings at a bargain. However, when searching for budget hotels in Mexico, always keep your safety and security in mind.

Choosing Hotels in Mexico

Mexico is one of the most beautiful and friendly countries in the world to visit. However, like many tourist destinations, Mexico has long struggled with problems of poverty and crime. Middle class travelers who arrive in Mexico often find that, compared to the local people, they're rich by comparison. Logically, tourists are often targeted for theft--not just in the streets, but even in their hotels. This doesn't just happen in Mexico, but in any country where poverty is a problem, including the United States.

For this reason, when choosing hotels in Mexico--which you've likely never seen in person--don't just choose the biggest bargain. Look for consumer or travel guide ratings on any hotel that you're interested in. What do they say about the hotel's security situation? Is the hotel located in a good neighborhood? Guests' feedback about their hotel stay is also very helpful. In the end, you'll be glad you made the extra effort in the planning stage to secure the best accommodations for your money.
