    Does anyone have a site they recommend for an all inclusive package (hotel + flight) to the Caribbean or Central America? I’m looking to take a long weekend trip I’m May but I’ve never done one of the all inclusive packages before.

    Any recommendations? Or advice on booking?

    Thanks

    We've used Travelocity in the past, but now that we have points for free flights we book things separate now. There are so many options out there now, pick one and book it.

    I use any one of these sites and I've done if I can remember right, well over 10 all-inclusives...
    www.vactionexpress.com www.cheapcaribbean.com www.applevacations.com

    Also, cross reference with the major airlines. Delta, American, JetBlue, Southwest. They all have vacation websites linked through their main websites. I've sometimes found booking directly through the airlines has been the cheapest. And don't count out Groupon too. There are occasions where travel websites put deals on there last minute. That's how found Vacation Express.

    Costa Rica was one of my favorites.

    I've used Apple vacations before, not bad.

    I have gone to Punta Cana, the property is the NOW Larimar. I expected it to suck, it was great! Real cheap, the food selection, and the food was great.

    I planned my wife and I's honeymoon at excellence play mujeres. I think I spoiled her though, now shes afraid to try anything cheaper. I had absolutely no complaints.

    When we went to peru and Bolivia we stayed at airbnbs. We winged everything. 2 return flights, 3 weeks, staying airbnbs cost us both $2500. They charge to many fees for booking agency's.

    Caribbean is my choice!
    We visited Los Roques this time last year and I have to admit we were torn between Caribbean and Central America too! We were on a fishing trip and found an affordable flight through this resource http://losroques-travel.com/en/flights/ . The overall experience was amazing
    If you have any questions please feel free to ask me

    I highly agree. I'm bias though. I wouldn't want to do an all inclusive. I really wouldn't want to do a cruise. Both trips just have you stuck around other English speaking people, in your "safe" little all inclusive bubble, pretending to look out into a country. "Oh, I've been to Mexico before." No, you stayed at a hotel in Mexico, too scared to leave their property.

    ...that's just me though. I know I'm the odd one. Plenty of people like their all inclusive trips. I see all the pics from friends and family on FB. Myself, I'm more the type to end up in Indonesia, rent a $6 moped, and cover 150km in a single day. Now that's an adventure.

    What are you looking to do and what is your budget. Toes in the sand, drink in the hand? Scuba? Hiking? Party? Young crowd, old crowd?
