Okay so I am planning a girl trip with friends in Feb to somewhere warm to escape the gloom... there are about 5 of us going and we have been constantly batthling it out on whether to do the all inclusive and where!! Any suggestions? I have heard HORROR stories of crappy food, bad service etc. Have any of you did the all inclusive and do you have any tips on where to go, what to look for and what to avoid? I have a parent from the Caribbean so I have always done the island hopping thing without the resorts...more of an adventure trip. I am willing to try to resort thing once but I have NO idea where to begin and what to expect. Your help and feedback is greatly appreciated!

Great Question on Jan 10, 2007 @ 12:39 pm

I've been looking into the same thing. I've done an all-inclusive once at a 3 star hotel in Puerto Vallarta (can't remember the name). It was not too bad but I'd like to find somehting else so I'm also interested in feedback on this. Just whatever you do make sure you don't have ice in your drinks, don't eat sliced food, lettuce or anything washed in water that hasn't been cooked. You could end up spending your vacation on the toilet. My old roommate and I went on the trip I mentioned above several years ago. We did what I suggested and were fine, though others we met on the trip didn't (they made fun of us for it) and ended up getting sick.

No Mexico eh? on Jan 10, 2007 @ 11:02 pm

Yeah I have my reservations about Mexico. I have to tell my best friend to come on this website and see that other people agree with me! Sheesh! :oP I have no need to spend a grand to be sick or have a bad time!

Safety on Jan 11, 2007 @ 10:05 pm

I think you have to be really careful in general anyway. There has been a lot of talk on the news about safety when travelling, even though tourist areas are deemed safe, you have to watch out.


This is a good site to look at:

Just want to make you aware! But I think this should apply to everywhere, not just Mexico.

Varadero all the way! on Jan 12, 2007 @ 01:28 pm

Hey Ladies. I recently got back from a fantastic trip with my best gal pal. We went to Cuba and stayed at the Breezes Jibacoa which was great...BUT NOT AS GREAT AS THE BREEZES VARADERO. It has a younger crowd, amazing beach, and there are clubs close by. The entertainment staff were amazing and organized groups each night to go out to the clubs and dance all night! Admission would be $5 or $10 U.S. and that included all your drinks. I highly recommend it!

Looks like the votes are in and we are going to Florida/Island Hopping...no resorts...more of an adventure vacation! Should be interesting!
