The Truth About All-Inclusive Honeymoons
Continued (page 2 of 8)
You're both really active.
Like starting the day with yoga, moving on to windsurfing, and fitting in some bocce before sunset? An all-inclusive holiday may be just your cup of Red Bull. The list of active offerings varies with each property (from tennis to trapeze lessons), and you can play from sun up to son down.
You like to make new friends.
Extroverts, rejoice: With a little effort, you'll likely return home from your holiday with more than a few additions to your Facebook Friends list. Along with the social lubricants in the bar, group events like team volleyball ensure that you'll make all the couple companions you could ever desire. Believe it or not, many honeymooners find themselves vacationing with their resort friends on future trips, too.
You want to rock and roll all night—and party everyday.
If you relish a bit of a buzz in the afternoon, we have two words for you: open bar. All-inclusives specialize in serving free-flowing libations to patrons—gratis. Some resorts charge extra for top-shelf liquor, so if your hubby must have his brand of scotch, be sure to ask about the resort's policy before you go.
You're mad about scuba diving.
If you're determined to spend as much time at the reef as on the beach, consider staying at a property that includes diving fees in its room rates. Many all-inclusive chains (including Sandals, Beaches, and some Grand Lido and Breezes properties) will outfit you with a tank for the princely price of…well, nothing. This policy can save avid divers hundreds of dollars on their honeymoon, but be warned—not every all-inclusive covers diving or other "motorized" water sports sports. Read the fine print before you sign on the dotted line, and then you can truly unwind and not worry about the expense once you arrive in paradise. —Yolanda Crous
