Planning a vacation can create a significant amount of stress. You must choose and budget for accommodations, meals and activities throughout your stay. All-inclusive vacations remove vacation planning stress by offering a packaged deal that contains most of what you need for a relaxing vacation for a set per-person price. Package options at all-inclusive resorts include those catering to singles, couples and families, depending on the resort you choose.
Booking an all-inclusive vacation takes much of the stress out of planning your trip. Your resort provides most of what you need for your vacation at a predetermined price. As long as you stick to included activities and dining options, you will know exactly how much your vacation will cost before you leave. The Family Vacation Survival Guide indicates that all-inclusive vacations can cut the cost of your trip by as much as 25 percent when compared to paying for things as you go.
By staying at an all-inclusive resort, you eliminate the need to have a rental car. Most of your vacation activities occur on the resort. If you wish to travel away from the resort to see the sights of your destination, simply use a resort shuttle service or hire a cab for a short drive. Often tour companies pick vacationers up from the resort as well. In major tourist areas, resorts send shuttles to the airport to pick up guests and bring them to the hotel, completely eliminating the need to pay for a car.
Not only do all-inclusive resorts include food and lodging, but they also include on-site activities. Resorts on beaches give guests snorkeling gear, non-motorized watercraft, and even sand pails and shovels for the kids. Cooking, yoga and fitness classes may be included as well. If you have your children with you, access to supervised children’s programs, camps and clubs may also be included.
It's the BEST way to go!
