Most all inclusive resorts include almost-but-not- quite-everything: that is, all meals and snacks, drinks, kids' programs, and certain watersports and other activities.
- Generally "non-motorized watersports" are included: kayaks, windsurfers, aquak-trikes, etc., while "motorized" ones cost.
- Snorkeling gear is often free, but perhaps only for an hour of use. Snorkeling boat-trips generally cost extra.
- Scuba is generally extra
- spas are always extra
- off-property outings are extra, though a shuttle bus to a nearby town may be free
- some NON-all-inclusives offer plans that include meals and/or activities
Breezes Curacao is another place with free scuba: guests age 12 and up can first take instruction, and then do daily shore dives. Meanwhile Breezes charges a small fee for its premium restaurants.
At Club Med properties, a wide range of activities are free; note, however, that you'll pay a charge for Baby and Petit (toddler) kids' clubs. Guests also need to buy a Club Med membership (which includes travel insurance.)
Tipping, by the way, is generally an official no-no, but at some properties is common enough.
