All Inclusive Vacations, What Does it Mean, Who are They For?

The most important advice is to read what is included carefully, as each resort is different.

There are all-inclusive for families that include kid activities through out the day – some even have night time activities; there are some just for couples and others for everyone. Once again, read carefully, if you want a romantic or quiet vacation, do not go to an all-inclusive that says it is for “everyone”.

If you are looking for relaxation, beach and to be catered to without much exploring and adventure, an all inclusive in the Caribbean/Mexico is the perfect vacation for you.

The Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Mexico are probably the least expensive and most popular destinations in the Caribbean for mid – high level All Inclusive resorts. The Dominican Republic (Punta Cana especially) is perfect for the all inclusive vacation because the price is right, the country is beautiful and some areas may not be the best place to explore on your own. The resorts are safe, beaches are beautiful and you get the bang for your buck!

If you are coming from the West Coast, you may want to consider the All-Inclusives located on the West Coast of Mexico. There is a lot to see in Mexico, but because it is so inexpensive, it does not hurt to pay for the all inclusive to have the luxury of everything you need at your finger tips and go out every once in a while if you feel the urge.

Here are a few examples of really good deals on all-inclusive deals:
For a plethora of deals throughout Mexico and the Caribbean check out this site for “SummerSun Fares”, the airfares are amazing like $749pp w/Air for All-Inclusives in Cozumel; there are many more destinations to choose from: More All-Inclusive SummerSun Fares.

Looking in Jamaica, check this site, as an example, $785+: Air & All-inclusive Resort, in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. This is what is called a “lead rate”, the least expensive of the bunch, but it is a good start. The price for this particular property, Breezes Runaway Bay is Casual, romantic, active, adults-only all Inclusive resort on a very nice beach on 22 acres of beachfront property in Runaway Bay- approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes from the Montego Bay airport- ROUND TRIP AIRPORT TRANSFERS ARE INCLUDED.

Another option is Mexico, for example, $835+: Air & 4nt All-Inclusive Resort , Iberostar Paraiso Maya Deal. This price reflects the Iberostar Paraiso Maya, a four star all inclusive, on one of the most beautiful beaches on the Riviera Maya only 30 minutes from the Cancun airport and 10 minutes north of Playa del Carmen- The service is top notch and friendly- R The pool complex has its own wave pool-a hit for the kids-a lazy river and many interconnected gigantic pools, highly recommended for families and couples alike. Please note this is for couples, who do not mind children around. However if you click on the above link, you can scan the website to find plenty of deals that are singles or couples only.

Club Med has locations around the globe and each location is catered towards a specific type of vacationer. There are Club Med’s for couples, families, great for both young children and teenagers, and for singles! Club Med is currently running some pretty spectacular deals through October to check out. Alcoholic beverages are not included, however many activities that are not included in other all inclusive resorts are included with Club Med, read descriptions carefully so you know what you are paying for.

For me it is not about the lowest price, but the best value. Whether you are looking for a low priced package just for a room to sleep in or if you want to be surrounded by luxury, offers every type of deal.
