The 12 Advantages of All Inclusive Vacation !
by Jen Campbell of Escape Destinations Travel
So, you can never truly fathom the true awesomeness of the all-inclusive resort until you can experience one firsthand. Many families I know believe it’s the best value for your money when you’re on a set budget. Many now they swear by all-inclusives and, happily, try out a new one every year or so. Simply put, even on a limited budget, no such compromise is necessary with the best all-inclusive resorts and here’s our 12 reasons why:
1. Logistically Easy.
The one headache people wish most to evade on holiday: Logistics. Simply put, where to go, how to get from one place to another (and keep our sanity), where to stay and what all to see. All-inclusives erase all this. For a busy family or couple, this is a godsend.
2. One price for Everything.
All-inclusives eliminate guesswork and the need to calculate complex budget algorithms. One (usually affordable) price for airfare, hotel, food, drinks and extras is a seductive offer for a family on a tight budget, a couple on a honeymoon, a gaggle of college students or, family getaway, girls only weekend, or anyone who simply desires to rapidly and simply get lost for a week or so.
The all-inclusive is just that. All-inclusive, a one-stop-shop, a purpose-built resort where you need not worry about where and what to eat, what to do and, most importantly, what not to do. Sure, you may have to pony up a little bit extra for that massage or activity but the beauty is that the spa is steps away and the beach is within eyeshot of your room. Activities are planned nearly all day and night, and you can choose to be as busy (or not busy) as you’d like.
Need to escape from your children or family for a week? Need to escape from other people’s kids for a week? You’re in luck. More and more all-inclusive resorts cater to the child-less, offering the promise of serenity, true romance and flirty fun.
On the other hand, if you plan to haul the wee ones along, plenty of all-inclusive resorts cater to parents and children alike. Daycares, kid-specific pools, activity zones, kids-clubs, monitors, performers and much, much more make it super fun and stress-free for the entire family (and especially for Mom and Dad).
6. No awkward tipping moments.
The awkward tip moment (whether to tip or not, how much to tip) inspires many a memorable travel tales to be shared. But some prefer to forgo the experience altogether, which is where the all-inclusive comes in, yes, it includes your tips (unless specified otherwise).
7. Opportunity to meet new people.
Whether you vacation all-inclusive style in the Caribbean, Mexico, the South Pacific or stay in a smallish or big time resort, you will enjoy meeting people from every corner of the world (and probably your corner of the world too). The all-inclusive culture facilitates a kind of breezy, informal locale that you can choose to adopt or abandon at your leisure.
8. Relative privacy and seclusion.
With that in mind, all-inclusive resorts can also be havens of solitude and stillness, where the mind quiets and settles into a delicious anti-routine. You can sit on the beach the entire week lost in thought, reflection and serenity, it’s all up to you!
9. No need to schlep.
When you stay in one place for a week or two, you can toss your bags in the closet and forget about them. No need to constantly pack and un-pack at various locations. Unpack once and be done!
10. No surprises.
Life moves super fast these days. The 9 to 5 grind can exact a super heavy tool and stress upon all of us. As such, a vacation with no surprises and a tranquil predictability can be a wonderful panacea. Enter the all-inclusive, doesn’t it sound heavenly?
11. Easy to stay on budget.
Unless you go nuts with side trips and menu extras, all-inclusives make it easy to adhere to the holiday financial plan (budget) that you’ve set up ahead of time.
12. You can get away anytime.
After a few days by the pool or with your feet in the sand, you may feel a tug to flee the confines of the resort. No problem, there’s always lots of things to get into. Tour operators in the lobby will be happy to whisk you to ancient ruins, caves, a rainforest, zip line, waterfall or, if fortune has it, a World Heritage colonial town.
