How much does an all-inclusive vacation in Mexico or the Caribbean cost?
This is one of the questions I get most often. The truth is, there is no simple answer. It’s kind of like asking “how much does a steak cost?” Well, that’s going to depend on a lot of factors such as the cut of meat, where you live, how big the steak is, if you’re buying it at the grocery store, if you’re getting it at Denny’s or if you’re getting it at a fancy steakhouse.
Vacations are no different. Do you want a chuck eye or a filet mignon? Do you want Denny’s service or upscale steakhouse service? A 4 oz petite filet or the Old 96er? And if you’re a vegan, then good news…the steak analogy portion of the blog has ended. 🙂
Here are some things that will affect the price of your all-inclusive vacation in Mexico or the Caribbean:
WHERE are you going?
Some destinations are less expensive than others. Your flight could range anywhere from $200-1000 depending on where you live and where you’re going.
WHEN are you going?
Are you staying 3 nights or 7 nights? Do you need to travel during festive season? Then be prepared to pay up to 3x more than you would if you traveled just a couple weeks earlier in the year. Spring break is also more expensive due to increased demand. Winter is the high season, so you can expect higher rates than in the Fall.
WHO is going?
Is this a family vacation? How old are the kids? Many all-inclusive resorts charge teenagers as adults. So if last year your child was 12, you may experience a big increase in cost this year. There are some resorts that do not charge full price for teenagers and I’ll help you find those gems.
WHAT kind of experience do you want?
I lied, the steak analogy is back. Chuck eye vs filet mignon. Denny’s vs Fine Steakhouse. You get it….there are all-inclusive resorts that span a spectrum of quality and experience. Even within the same resort the cost varies greatly from the cheapest room overlooking the trash can to a huge suite with private pool and butler service.
WHY are you traveling?
Is this a special occasion such as your honeymoon? Are you celebrating a milestone birthday or anniversary? Or maybe you’re just in need of an affordable last-minute getaway. I splurged when I turned 40 and booked a nice suite on a cruise. Then the next year I booked a last-minute cheap Carnival cruise. Different occasions call for different budgets.
