Which is better? All inclusive, or just on your own?

I did an all inclusive once but am not sure it was such a great value?

  • We alwyas did it on our own after analyzing the deals. But I have heard some of the all inclusives for Mexico resorts are fantastic. I have friends who have gone to 2 different Mexico resorts and loved it.

  • We will never go on a vacation that is not all-inclusive. We booked Riveria Maya for 5 nights for $3100 and when we get there, we get $1500 back in resort money to use on sightseeing, spa, activities that aren't already covered.

    If you shop around, you can find some really great deals. Applevacations.com and cheapcarribean.com are our favorite sites. We could go to Punta Cana for $1600 for 2 of us with flight included.

  • We prefer to do your own, but we tend to visit many off the beaten path places-

  • We prefer our own except for cruises. For a land vacation I don't want to be so tied down to one place.
