An all-inclusive resort is an attractive vacation option to many travelers. It's convenient to get to your destination and not need to worry about the cost of food and whether the activities are included or take your wallet or purse everywhere you go. Those who are accustomed to less-expensive Caribbean or Mexican all-inclusive resorts might be disappointed at the price point of Florida's all-inclusive properties.True all-inclusive resorts are few and far between in Florida - and the US in general. These resorts cater to couples and families seeking luxury, relaxation and convenience. For those who have smaller budgets, but still want the convenience of preplanned and prepaid meals and activities, look for resorts and hotels that offer meal plans or special activity or themed packages.
