When it comes to traveling as a family, couple or group I think some of the biggest challenges are budget, making sure there are activities that everyone can enjoy and if traveling with kids, Mom and Dad being able to get some adult/date time.

 While I believe there are several vacation choices that will conquer these challenges, at the top of my list is the All-Inclusive resort vacation.

Here Are My Top 5 reasons I Love All-inclusive Vacations:



1. Amazing Food and Drink –  Long gone is the boring buffet line. There are now many gourmet all-inclusive resorts. The resorts have many restaurants so you can eat at a different restaurant each night. For example,  The Royalton Riviera Cancun has 9 different restaurants and Beaches Turks and Caicos has 20. As well, they offer so many different cuisines, amazing international cuisine, brick oven pizza, gelato and bakeries for those yummy afternoon snacks.  Many resorts are also serving premium brands of liquor and wine.
2. Activities and Entertainment –  These resorts offer activities for adults, kids and the whole family. You can learn to scuba, surf or just relax on the beach. They have night time parties and amazing entertainment for the whole family.  A nice added feature is that resorts like Beaches and the Nickelodeon Punta Cana also offer great character experiences for the kids.

3. Cost –  There are all-inclusive resorts to meet any budget.

The best part of going to an all-inclusive resort is the “all-inclusive”.  When everything is included you really do save money over other vacations, and you will not be surprised with a big bill when you check out. The only additional charges should be if you choose a spa visit or additional babysitting. However, not all resorts are created equal and there can be additional charges, but that is where I come in to make sure you get to the “right” resort.

4. Child Care and Kids Clubs – This is one of the great added values of the all-inclusive when it comes to families. Many resorts offer child care and activities for kids 3 and up.  But what about the little ones? Well, there are several resorts which include certified nannies.  The great thing is that you can use the child care as much or as little as it suits your family. It is just nice to have it as an option. I think Mom and Dad deserve a little vacation too. Even if it is just to be able to have a nice dinner date.

5. There is an all-inclusive resort to match any family.  There are many all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, with the best deals being Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Mexico.  But, if you are looking for something closer there are actually some great resorts right here in the US, like the Club Med Sandpiper right in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

So, are you ready to start planning your All-Inclusive vacation?
