I’m writing this post from the balcony of my room at the Villa Del Palmar Loreto hotel in Loreto, Mexico where I am staying as an all inclusive guest as part of a fam tour. This is only my second time staying at an all inclusive resort (the first was a few years back in Cuba) and you know what? I like it.
When I travel, as you know I mostly travel solo. Each trip is an adventure. I enjoy roaming city streets without a map, trying new and different foods at whatever random restaurant I come upon when I realize I’m hungry. I like interacting with the locals and hearing travel stories from other people staying at the same hostel as me or from people on a tour I’ve chosen to take. Nothing is planned, I never know what I might stumble upon or what might happen next. At an all inclusive resort however that is all different.
At an all inclusive resort after a day or two, everyone staying there is a familiar face to you, you will have eaten at the various restaurants, sampled the drink list and enjoyed the amenities. End of adventure. However I like that. It is nice to come to a place like this where the only decision you have to make is chicken or fish? Piña Colada or Margarita? You don’t need to think about much or even worry about money as everything is included. And well with a view like this who can complain?
Its nice just to turn your brain off, relax and enjoy the sun and let other people worry for you. All inclusive vacations might not be for every one but after a lot of quick fast paced half way around the world trips it is nice just to stop and think, read a book and just relax.
Have you gone on an all inclusive vacation before? Would you? Hola from Mexico!
