For those who are in desperate need of a little vacation, but have little time to plan a trip, an all-inclusive holiday just may be the perfect solution. All-inclusive vacations typically include your meals, drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), sports and basic activities, and entertainment.
When it comes to all-inclusive holidays in Europe, Spain is one of the most popular destinations, particularly the islands. The Balearic Islands, which include Majorca and Ibiza, are located in the western Mediterranean Sea, and offer terrific scenery and plenty of great activities.
Spain’s Canary Islands are also quite popular for all-inclusive holidays. Located just off the northwest coast of mainland Africa, the Canary Islands are the place to go if you love sun-bathing, scuba-diving, snorkeling, and swimming. The easternmost Canary Island, Lanzarote, is home to several fine resorts, including the family-friendly THB Hotel.
Turkey is another country in Europe that is home to some beautiful all-inclusive resorts, with many of these resorts located on the Turquoise Coast. Greece (especially Corfu and Crete) and Portugal also offers spectacular all-inclusive vacations in stunning settings.
Africa and Asia
Africa is rarely associated with the idea of an all-inclusive holiday. Yet, despite common belief, the continent is actually home to some truly impressive resorts. In Kenya, you can stay amid the tropical gardens of Bamburi Beach or at the luxurious Sarova Whitesands, set on the longest beachfront on the Kenyan coast.
All-inclusive resorts can also be found in tropical Sri Lanka, where holiday-seekers can enjoy popular activities such as kite-surfing or surfing. Sri Lankan resorts include The Sands by Aitken Spence Hotel, a contemporary resort hotel, and the Club Palm Bay, which features its own lagoon. Even small Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, boasts some resorts, such as the small yet modern Silver Beach, and the glamorous Tamarina Boutique Hotel.
The Caribbean is the ultimate vacation destination for North American sun-seekers. Whether you’re a college student on spring break, a family searching for a kid-friendly vacation, a young couple planning their honeymoon, or a retiree looking for a relaxing week or two on the beach, there is definitely the perfect all-inclusive resort waiting for you in the Caribbean.
Cuba tends to be a popular destination for young Canadians (it remains somewhat difficult for Americans to gain entry into Cuba), as resort prices tend to be cheaper than prices on other islands. The Dominican Republic is also home to a wide variety of more reasonably-priced resorts.
For a romantic getaway, the Caribbean is also home to many adult-only resorts. High season in the Caribbean is Christmas time, as well as February and March when schools are on break. June can be rather rainy, and September and October are the peak months for hurricane season, but keep in mind that not all areas are affected by this weather pattern so research before you book.
So that's it, which continent would you choose to spend an all inclusive vacation on?
