All inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico are extremely popular with families, thanks to their beautiful beaches, fun watersports, and kids programs. Below you'll find nine all inclusive resort suggestions -- in Jamaica, Aruba, Curacao, Mexico, the DR -- that won't blow the budget. But first, a few points to note, before you look for a place with a good price point:

  • Don't Play Prima Donna : it's nuts to feel entitled to five-star service at a value price. Enjoy what the resort offers, focus on the best features, and be happy you're saving money.
  • Do the Due Diligence.: for any property, read recent visitor comments at a site like TripAdvisor.com. Remember, there will always be habitual whiners, so read a broad sample, and read between the lines.
  • Do The Math. Be sure to factor in the cost of transportation to the resort, i.e. airfare plus ground transfers.
