If you are one of the hundreds of thousands of people whose all-inclusive vacation or cruise was cancelled due to Covid-19, you're probably struggling to come up with a plan B. The hunt for hassle-free vacations close to home is on, but the search is anything but easy.
Are there all-inclusive resorts in the US?
Yes! Well, sort of. The truth is that there are plenty of all-inclusive vacations available in the continental US, but most are different from what you'd find at a typical all-inclusive resort in Mexico and the Caribbean.
Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is one of the most popular tourist destinations. Resort development began on this stretch of the Dominican Republic soon after the first commercial airport opened in 1984. Since then this lush, tropical island paradise has become a mecca for vacationers seeking affordable all-inclusive vacations.
There are a little over 100 resorts lining Punta Cana's 8 main beaches, most of them offer all-inclusive amenities. But we'll be honest, vacationers seeking quality service and food and who prefer a little more luxury will find the choices to be limited. Resorts in Punta Cana do not always live up to the pictures and descriptions on their websites. So how can you afford a luxury Punta Cana resort without lowering your expectations?
