It's the middle of winter, which means most of us are getting tired of cold weather and dreaming of lying on a beach somewhere tropical instead, with palm trees swaying overhead and a fruit smoothie in hand.
The problem? It can be overwhelming trying to plan a trip and coordinate all the logistics.
The solution? Staying at an all-inclusive resort! At an all-inclusive resort, the price you pay includes your room, all food and drinks, tons of activities, and sometimes extra perks like free airport transfers.
It's a totally hassle-free experience that frees up time for you just to relax and enjoy your vacation.
All-inclusives have changed in recent years — resorts are leveling up the accommodations, food, and experiences they offer to cater to more travelers.
There are all-inclusive resorts for every budget, whether you're looking for an affordable getaway or a luxurious vacation. Some all-inclusive resorts cater to families, while others are adults-only. And some resorts have a special focus on wellness or other interests.
Here are the top destinations for all-inclusive resorts in 2024:
Cancun is one of the best destinations for an all-inclusive vacation. This Mexican Caribbean hotspot is just a short flight away from many cities in the U.S., making it a very convenient getaway. Nearly 40 cities in the U.S. currently have nonstop flights to Cancun.
