But all-inclusive resorts have also never been more different. Yes, you can still find the “traditional” all-inclusive, but there is a remarkable amount of choice for the modern traveler: you can do an all-inclusive adventure retreat; spend your week at in a private villa with a plunge pool; take a diving vacation.
