Decide if an All-inclusive Is For You


Should you vacation at a resort that provides everything at one price?
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 30 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Use the link below to acquaint yourself with the leading all-inclusive resorts.
  2. Understand that most are located in the warm Caribbean.
  3. Is this your first major trip? If so, the ease of knowing everything is provided for you may lessen any anxiety you have about going to a foreign country.
  4. Are you on a budget? The biggest advantage of an all-inclusive is that you know in advance what the trip will cost.
  5. Do you like to go exploring? Determine if the all-inclusive offers excursions outside its gates, and what the costs are.
  6. Is there a specific sport you like? Find out if it's available at the property, and if there's a fee or ever a wait to do it.
  7. Do you mind being surrounded by couples, or would you rather interact with locals when you travel? (An all-inclusive can be an insular experience.)
  8. Check the Honeymoons/Romantic Getaways Forum to read about other travelers' experiences.


  1. Some all-inclusives charge extra for items such as liquor, sports, and spa services.
  2. Pick an all-inclusive that caters to couples. (Some attract singles or families, the last thing you want on a romantic holiday.)
