All Inclusive Caribbean Vacations... Which One Is Right For You?

Ok, now that you've decided to try an all-inclusive family vacation, you might be asking where do I go? Off the top of my head I recommend the Caribbean with destinations, like Jamaica, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico.

Here's a short list of hotels offering all inclusive plans.

This, by no means, covers every destination or resort. There are many more fine destination and resorts to choose from.

Alphabetically, you might try the Westin Aruba or the Riu Palace while in Aruba or, if thinking Bahamas look into packages by Beaches Resorts or Club Med. Further South, consider Dominican Republic offerings like Allegro Punta Cana, Coral Canoa, or the Wyndham. Jamaica has many great inclusive packages; try the Grand Lido Braco Resort, Breezes Runaway Bay or the Couples Negril. Puerto Rico
is an beautiful island. Consider Paradisas Resorts or Copa Marina. Forty miles east you'll find the U S Virgin Islands and the Wyndham Sugar Bay. All great loacations with something for everyone.

Want a change from the Caribbean? Try Canada's North West region. British Columbia is absolutely stunning.

When researching destinations, try using one of the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, or MSN. If you are a scuba diver or want to spend a week fishing, type fishing (sailing, diving, kayaking, etc.)all inclusive vacation and you'll see lots of results for those particular search terms.

Let's cover one additional subject that may be on your mind... tipping. Do I have to tip at an all-inclusive resort? If so, how much? My answer is this... some properties forbid tipping, but general guidelines say tipping is not required at all-inclusive resorts. It's almost always included in the total cost of the vacation. However, employees working activities like water sports or excursions that are not included in your all-inclusive package are usually tipped. Baggage handlers, tour guides, golf caddies, etc., are also customarily tipped. Feel free to ask your travel counselor concerning questions about whether tips are, or are not suggested. How much do you tip? Use the same general guidelines you practice at home.

Ready to go? Just remember that careful planning is the key to a great all inclusive vacations for your family. First dedicate some quality time to research and then pick your destination. Hopefully some of the destinations I mentioned above will trigger you're curiosity and make your planning easier.

Here are a few more Caribbean destination ideas: Barbados, St. Kitts, St. Martin, St. Lucia, Panama, Belize, Mexico and the Turks and Caicos. Well known resorts like Sandals, Beaches, Radisson, and Wyndham are all great choices, and I can pretty much guarantee that an all inclusive vacation in the Caribbean will be an adventure your family will remember for a long time.

I hope I've answered the question... "All inclusive vacations- are they worth your time and money?"

I recommend giving your family the opportunity to experience one of the very best options for a family vacation; the all inclusive family vacation. Watch for some of the vacation specials in your local Sunday paper, or simply type "caribbean all inclusive vacations" into your favorite search engine and you'll find all the information you need to make a great decision for your next family vacation.
