All-Inclusive Resort Vacations

Looking for your next relaxing getaway? For some travellers, there’s nothing better than an all-inclusive resort vacation because it means spending more time lounging on a pristine, white-sand beach (with a fruity drink in hand, of course). Or, snorkelling among colourful fishes, splashing in the pool, or dining out with loved ones without ever having to reach for a wallet. And even though some all-inclusives can be pretty pricey, others offer great value, with all meals, activities, and accommodations included at one fair price.

We rounded up some of the best affordable all-inclusive resorts, and they range from luxurious villa hotels to family-friendly properties on the beautiful Mexican coast, with rates averaging $1,000 a night or less.

Here are 13 of the best affordable all-inclusive resorts. We have added approximate pricing which is subject to change. These are prices for a 7 night stay for a family of 4 from January 15th to January 22nd, 2023. Prices are in CAD and do not include airfare.
