Imagine: You’re relaxing on the white-sand beach of a tropical island, sipping a cool drink, and soaking in the sun. The kids are playing water games while you and your friends plan which resort restaurant to try out next. The waiter returns with cool drink.

And you haven’t pulled out your wallet.

Not. Even. Once.

This is the beauty of the all-inclusive resort—a dream vacation where everything around you has already been taken care, before your arrival.

All you have to do is show up and enjoy your four days and five nights of blissful paradise.

So, we thought it important to share several resorts that are all-inclusive. Whether you’re looking for an adults-only getaway or a trip for the entire family, we’ve got just the spots for you! This is not a complete list, but enough to get you thinking.
