Thank you all so much. I have contacted the resort and my travel agent. I am so excited about the card. I never thought to look that up. I was going to make one up myself.
I've found it is far easier to eat gluten free outside of the USA and Canada because meals are made from fresh ingredients and not pre-packaged and pre-frozen. I just returned from a month's vacation travelling independently in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay and had some fabulous meals.
Make use of free or purchased restaurant cards in multiple languages, in your case, Spanish. Here is one source www.celiactravel.com/restaurant-card
Also, google gluten free restaurant card and check the results.

If you plan on only eating at the resort or doing most of your eating there, I would contact the resort. Ask them if they have a gluten free menu and/or request to speak with the head chef. I would do this ahead of time and then again once you arrive.
If you are going to be eating elsewhere, I would do some research on the restaurants in the area or ask about gluten free items when you get to the restaurant.

I would contact the hotel for one. Ask if they can put ingredients out or at least indicate which are gluten free.
I am sure there are people needing dairy free too.
I am fairly new to the GF life and am going on vacation to an all inclusive resort in Mexico in a few months. I was just wondering if anyone had been in this situation before and if you had any advice on what to do to keep any gluten from ruining my trip.
Thanks in advance,
