“It’s a fact that all-inclusive resorts can be expensive, with the average nightly rate at some of the bigger chains running $450—per person. And when you find one in your price range there’s usually a caveat—the beach is a 15-minute drive away, or the “all” only includes non-alcoholic beverages (those margaritas by the pool really add up). We here at Budget Travel love a challenge and—though it wasn’t easy—we found eight beachfront all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America starting at around $100 per person, per night. And they really are all-inclusive: a double room, three meals a day, drinks (from soda to cocktails), and lots of activities.”
ClubHotel Riu Negril, Jamaica, from $98 per person, per night.
Iberostar Costa Dorada, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, $100 per person, per night (three-night minimum).
Royal Decameron Golf Beach Resort & Villas, Farallón, Panama, from $111 per person, per night.
Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa, Mexico, from $150 per person, per night.
Krystal Cancun, Mexico, from $188 per person, per night. Tipping for the staff is included in the rate, so no need to reach for your wallet every time you order another round. (I like this, too much stress having the change and thinking every time how much I should tip.)
Barceló Langosta Beach, Tamarindo, Costa Rica, from $188 per person, per night.
Paradise Island Harbour Resort, Bahamas, from $210 per person, per night, check the website for specials thru 2013.
Jolly Beach Resort & Spa, Antigua, from $221 per person, per night.
