When it comes to traveling, do you prefer to stay at an all-inclusive resort or go “freestyle” and plan your vacation yourself? Some travelers love all-inclusive resorts, while others would not go near them – it’s all a matter of preference.

Do You Prefer Comfort or Authenticity?
Would you enjoy having all of your dining and amenities available onsite, so you can simply sip cocktails by the pool and enjoy the sunshine? Or would you enjoy the challenge of navigating the streets to find a local restaurant? At an all-inclusive resort, you’ll have all of your food included, which can be very convenient and easy. However, some people thrive on discovering the local culinary scene and trying new things. Also, if you’re staying at an all-inclusive resort and you do decide to try one of the restaurants outside the resort, you’re essentially paying for your dinner twice.
