My sister was just telling me about a really great deal she found for a girls’ weekend in Mexico next month. And she’s going for it. Me = jealous. I know I shouldn’t be – I just got back from Florida! – but I am. I love Mexico. It’s been 5 years, but I have fond memories of my last trip to Cancun. My husband and I stayed at Le Blanc Spa resort. It was amazing. Okay, more like ahhhhhh-mazing. Truly restful and relaxing… exactly what a vacation is supposed to be! It was my first experience at an all-inclusive resort, and let’s just say I’m never going back. Never going back to a regular hotel, that is! If I have the option, I’ll always go the all-inclusive route.
What does this mean, exactly? It varies from one resort to the next, but in addition to your room, your stay will likely include all meals, beverages (alcoholic, too!), resort activities, airport transfers, and gratuities. Yes, tips are usually included in the price of your all-inclusive vacation! Some, like Beaches, do not allow their staff to accept tips whatsoever, but this policy varies from one company to the next, of course. With the good food, nightly entertainment, and a variety of activities and water sports available onsite, you may not even have to leave the resort grounds!
Ultimately, it ends up being an incredible value. If you keep track of all the food and drinks you consume, and the activities you partake in, you’ll see just how much you’ll be saving. Not having to carry cash around is really wonderful, too. I did splurge on a massage and pedicure in the beautiful Le Blanc spa, but had no other expenses otherwise!
So… now that my little ones are older, I’d love to take them along with us to Mexico one day. We did go to Beaches in Jamaica once, which was fabulous, but Mexico is closer and, well, more affordable! I’ve been ‘building’ my trip on the Funjet Vacations website just for fun. A girl can dream!
