While the all-inclusive resort is one of the most popular options on other islands like Jamaica, the opposite is true in Puerto Rico. Still, visitors interested in an all-inclusive stay will be able to find one on the island.
Many vacationers feel that all-inclusive resorts are a great deal. After all, you pay one set price for all of your food and entertainment, so you know exactly how much to budget for that portion of the trip before you even leave home. It's a weight off many traveler's shoulders, and helps to take away some of the pressure of pre-vacation planning. However, vacationers should keep in mind that each resort has different definitions of "all inclusive." Check with the individual resort to see what they include in their price.
Others feel that all of the in-resort activities and meals detract from the experience of visiting a Caribbean island. With so many other tourists and planned activities, all-inclusives make some people feel that they are actually missing out on something. Getting a true taste of Puerto Rican culture would certainly be more difficult without stepping outside of the resort's confines. Likewise, the resort's menu would probably have little local flair.
