All-inclusive Vacations & Resorts
Your All-inclusive Vacation
It's a fact: All-inclusive resorts won't leave you hungry, thirsty or bored. With lagoon-style pools, overflowing buffets and activities from theme nights to kids clubs, all-inclusive vacations are packed with the most travel bang out of your buck. Under an all-inclusive plan, pay for room, meals, activities, taxes, tips and entertainment up front. Tailor your trip, whether you want luxury, thrifty, family-friendly or kid-free, and for goodness sake, kick back and have a cerveza.

If you've never booked vacation packages, all-inclusive is the way to go. Learn more about all-inclusive vacation packages in these frequently asked questions:
Q: What's included in my bill?
A: Costs are spelled out in our vacation package descriptions. They include airfare, accommodations, meals, and listed activities. All taxes are included as well, along with resort fees and -- best of all -- gratuities. You can stash your plastic and cash the moment you arrive and never see menus prices or bar tabs.
Q: How can I save more on all-inclusive vacations?
A: Book your flight + hotel together. Orbitz gives you access to discounted rates that you wouldn't see booking separately. Plus, we'll show you how much you'll save.
Q: Can I leave the resort?
A: Just because you're staying at an all-inclusive doesn't mean you can't explore your surroundings. Most packages include tours of the area or shuttles to nearby attractions. And most resorts have concierges who can help you choose additional expeditions geared to your interests. Since you're not paying each time you dine, you're free to use your discretionary cash to zip over the treetops on a jungle canopy tour, climb ancient pyramids, or wander through local villages.
Q: Can I dine or use facilities at nearby resorts?
A: Most resorts have enough activities and dining options to satisfy relaxed vacationers. But if you have wanderlust in your soul, several all-inclusive resorts offer privileges at nearby properties so you can explore new restaurants, beaches, spas and destinations whenever you wish. On Jamaica, for example, Sandals offers shuttles between its Ocho Rios properties.
Q: Can I get the type of vacation I want?
A: While some all-inclusive resorts offer something for everyone, others target vacationers with specific interests. For golfers, Moon Palace's all-inclusive package includes play at its Jack Nicklaus course. The Royal Hideaway is geared toward couples seeking romance, gourmet dining and personalized service, while Breezes Runaway Bay includes scuba diving at fabulous underwater walls and canyons.
Q: What if I want an all-inclusive vacation without kids?
A: Choose an adults-only resort, which allows guests 18 and older. Secrets, Sandals and Excellence have adults-only properties. Some emphasize fun, while others offer seclusion, serenity and fabulous spas.
