All Inclusive Resorts – Where and Why to Go?!

If you LOVE the beach, then you MUST go to an All-Inclusive Resort!


My first trip out of the USA was to Cancun, Mexico to an all-inclusive resort.  At first I was super nervous to travel to Mexico mostly because I wasn’t sure if people would speak English or if it would be safe.

Turns out it was totally safe and easy to find English speaking people. I remember being so excited to ride the public bus and interact with people from all over the world.

Basically, I fell in love.

The reason I like all inclusive resorts is because everything is included!  Duh! {actually not always, more on that tomorrow}

It’s so EASY!

You pick your place, pay, and go. When you arrive, everything is free!

Okay – it’s not free – but while you’re there it feels free!

For me, one huge purpose of a vacation is to RELAX! I have a tough time relaxing when I have to consider my budget for dining out, my transportation in an unfamiliar city, and my ability to find entertainment every day.

At all inclusive resorts, the most stress I feel is determining the location of my beach chair. {that’s not stress! lol}

Where do you find them?

Mexico and the Caribbean!  Not in the US.

So far I’ve been to:

  • Cancun {x6}
  • Jamaica
  • Aruba
  • Dominican Republic

Why are they amazing!?

  • Mental Freedom – you’ve already researched and paid!
  • Food and drinks included – variety for every craving
  • Activities included – learning a language, game, crafts
  • Night time entertainment – singers, acrobats, plays
  • Amazing beaches – teal water, white sand.

Okay, I’m ready to go now.

I hope this information convinced you to put an all inclusive vacation on your bucket list!


Where are you going next!?
