    Any Secrets resort is sure to be a winner from our experiences with the Secrets resorts. We have in the last 4 years been to Secrets 4 times. Once in Cancun and three times in Cabo (Cabo is amazing)!!! Our favorite. It would be nice to go to a different country. I have always wanted to visit Jamaica (Jamaica man)!!! There are so many new resorts opening up and they are all on my bucket list.
