- Caribbean All inclusive holidays
Not many holidays sound more luxurious than an all-inclusive break in the Caribbean. With more than 700 land masses throughout the Caribbean Sea, grouped into more than 30 different territories, it's a real meeting place for the different cultures of the world, ranging from the great European explorer nations like France, Portugal and the UK, to local influences from North America - which the Caribbean is generally considered to be a part of - to neighbouring Central and South America too.
Off the islands in the Caribbean
Think of the Caribbean and you probably imagine paradise islands with unspoilt sandy beaches and palm trees, waves lapping at the shore, and perhaps a hotel on the beach or the chance to go snorkelling or scuba diving off the coast. All of these things can be found in abundance in the region, but many people overlook the Caribbean's mainland coast too, and the beaches of Venezuela, Suriname, Belize, Guyana and French Guiana are all often grouped into the general heading of the Caribbean. Make your break in any of these locations for the great weather and watersports activities that you'd find anywhere else in the Caribbean Sea, without having to leave the mainland.
Why all-inclusive is better in the Caribbean
If your holiday is taking place on a Caribbean island, there really is no reason not to go all inclusive. Many of the smaller islands don't take too long to explore, especially if the resort you are staying in is one of the only sizeable communities on the island. All-inclusive holidays in the Caribbean mean your hotel becomes a starting point for any such explorations, but when you return to it at the end of the day, you have a better chance of being able to get a satisfying meal without having to pay extra for it, or can relax with a refreshing drink without breaking the budget for the day.
What does all-inclusive include?
All-inclusive holidays to the Caribbean mean the basic essentials are all paid for without any additional cost to your holiday. Flights and accommodation are standard, but food and drink will usually be covered in full, with perhaps the exception of alcohol. The significant difference is that all-inclusive holidays usually give you the ability to order food when you want it, rather than including it in the price but only at specific mealtimes during the day.
Why choose an all-inclusive holiday to the Caribbean?
An all-inclusive holiday to the Caribbean is every bit as good as it sounds. There are many benefits of choosing to go all-inclusive but the biggest is that you are free to relax and fully immerse yourself in island life. From the moment you arrive on your Caribbean retreat the only thing you will need to worry about is getting yourself down to the beach and unwinding. Those extras costs for things such as accommodation, meals and drinks won’t be a feature of your beach holiday – leaving you free to get on with relaxing in the sun.
