    Last week, I wrote about what’s included at an all-inclusive resort. This week, let’s dig a little bit deeper into this topic and talk more about this unique and popular vacation style.


    What are the benefits of staying at an all-inclusive resort? The biggest benefit is that an all-inclusive tends to be a stress-free vacation. When you know what the vacation is going to cost up front—and when almost everything is included in the price—you are more likely to keep your vacation in budget. No budget stress! Another stress reducer is that everything is in the same place and easily accessible. You don’t need to drive to find activities or restaurants in an area that is new to you.



    Is this a good vacation for my children/grandchildren? Yes, an inclusive can be a great multi-generational vacation! Kids love all-inclusive resorts because they generally have fantastic pools, lazy rivers, beaches, and more. Some even include special kids’ activities with staff members who specialize in keeping children entertained. One important note: all-inclusive resorts are generally sub-categorized as adults-only or family-friendly. You’ll want to make sure that you are booking a family friendly resort if you intend to bring kids. If you aren’t bringing children/grandchildren with you, you should decide if you want an adults-only environment or if you prefer a family-friendly environment.



    Where can I go if I want to try an all-inclusive resort? Most all-inclusive resorts are found in the Caribbean, especially in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Because they are so popular in the Caribbean, all-inclusives are an excellent option for those seeking a tropical vacation with lots of relaxing on the beach or at the pool. In the US, there are only a couple of true all-inclusive resorts. You are more likely to find resorts where you can add on a meal plan or where you might have access to on-site included activities.



    Is there a resort or a brand that you recommend? Yes, we definitely have our favorites! But before we can recommend a resort, we want to know more about what kind of vacation you want. Adults only or family friendly? Luxury or no frills? Attentive service or more independence? Lots of activities or lots of serenity? Exciting nightlife or quiet and calm? Beach or pool? Food quality or food quantity?



    If you’re ready to give an all-inclusive a try, we’d be happy to recommend something that we think is the perfect fit for your preferred vacation style and destination. With so many options to choose from, there is an all-inclusive for everyone and for every budget!
