As summer winds down, it’s the perfect time to start planning your winter vacation for the entire family. All-inclusive resorts are a great option for parents and kids of all ages because they offer everything you can imagine included in one price! Picture a gorgeous resort with pristine pools, hot tubs, beaches and garden-like grounds, and then add in room accommodations, fine and casual dining, cocktails, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, activities for both kids and adults, and you have the perfect recipe for a successful, relaxing and fun family experience! 

You’ll enjoy crystal Caribbean blue waters and white sand beaches at the Iberostar Paraiso Maya. Located on Mexico’s Riviera Maya, this stunning 5-star resort is perfect for active families. Water activities abound; the resort boasts a lazy river, wave pool, six swimming pools, and a water park. Special programs for kids 4-12 and teens ensure there will never be a dull moment! From aerobics to archery and snorkeling to windsurfing, there is something for every member of the family. When it’s time to refuel, catch a casual bite at one of two buffets, or enjoy one of six specialty restaurants. 

Ideal for families with children 3-12, Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort and Spa offers “unlimited luxury” for all guests. Adults will enjoy the golf course, spa, sparkling pools and top-shelf wines, beers and spirits, while the Explorer Club for kids offers fun activities designed around nature and exploration with a professionally supervised staff. Parents, would you like to enjoy a romantic evening alone? The Explorer’s Club provides dinner and activities for your kids while you reconnect and enjoy gourmet dining options at one of four a la carte restaurants or large international buffet. Before traveling, you can download an app that allows you to make calls and send messages over the Dreams WiFi network without incurring international roaming charges. 

Dreaming of Hawaii? While not traditionally known as an all-inclusive destination, the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island now offers an “inclusive exclusive” package! Enjoy daily breakfast, dinner, house wine, beer, rail cocktails, and non-alcohol beverages for two when you stay four nights or longer. This 62-acre award-winning oceanfront resort features three stunning pools with waterfalls, a 175-foot waterslide, and an adults-only pool. At Club Keiki for kids 5-12, camp counselors share their knowledge of the islands through storytelling and activities that engage and inspire. The entire family can enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the lovely, ocean-fed, salt-water lagoon or soak up the tropical sun on the smooth white-sand beach.

Your best bet for additional value is to book early for increased savings. An all-inclusive family vacation can allow you to stay within your travel budget while enjoying a multitude of activities and dining options. The only challenge you’ll face is deciding where to go!
