How to Choose an All-inclusive

There are so many all-inclusive resorts throughout the Caribbean and Mexico that it can be tough to choose. We want to make it easy for you with these tips!

Family friendly or adults only all-inclusive?


If traveling with children you must look for a kid-friendly resort.  You want to ensure that there are age-appropriate activities such as clubs, kid play areas and water sports. Do you need a place to put a crib? You also want the proper room configuration to best meet your needs and for privacy.

If no kids are traveling you must determine if you want a general resort that has both adults and families, or an adults-only resort which is generally more expensive.


Families and adults

There are a number of all-inclusive resorts that accept both families and couples, but also have adults-only sections.  They are often in separate buildings, have their own pool and restaurant, but are together using all of the resort facilities.


How much do you want to spend at an all-inclusive?

Determine your budget so you know whether to choose a budget, moderate or a deluxe property. There are many options and knowing how much you would like to spend will help you narrow it down. Don’t forget to look for exclusions in the fine print and in comparing prices!
