For the outdoorsy family
If your idea of a getaway isn’t to just lounge by the pool all day, then you probably want to choose an all-inclusive that allows for some action. In the Santiago Bay on the Mexican Pacific Riviera is Manzanillo, Mexico, home to the La Hada Golf Resort & Marina, where all-inclusive rates begin at $179 a night. Everything you need to make your vacation is part of your rate: food and beverage and access to the private beach, golf course, and marina. When you get bored with hitting balls at their 18-hole course, you can play tennis, try water sports and more. About to welcome a new addition to your family? Try one of these babymoon ideas.
For the couple who likes to get down
Down in the Caribbean, locals know how to throw a good party. If that sounds right up your alley, consider Lighthouse Pointe at Grand Lucayan on Grand Bahama Island. With fruity (yet, strong) drinks and plenty of spicy food, it’s not uncommon for guests to throw a few back and dance while the sun sets over the crystal-clear waters. Rates begin at $169 a night, and include food, beverage, water sports, unlimited golf, and weekly entertainment. From beach barbecues to fish frys and more, you won’t lust for party time, because you’ll be right in it the middle of all the action.

You want to book an exotic anniversary trip, but your husband’s passport is expired? No problem. Hop a flight down to Puerto Rico where U.S. citizens can travel with simply a driver’s license to stay at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa in Rio Grande. Since it’s adjacent to the only national rain forest in the United States, you can take a break from your poolside drinks to catch a rare glimpse into wildlife and nature. Or, feed iguanas and witness turtle nesting on the resort’s own mile-long secluded beach. Rates begin at $280 a night, with all meals, drinks, and dozens of recreational activities included.
