Regardless of whether you’re planning to leave for your honeymoon the day after your wedding or if you’ll be waiting just a few months longer, getting everything sorted for your first big vacation as a married couple is not something to put off. If you’re like many couples, you’ve already begun thinking about the possibility of an all-inclusive trip – and we can’t blame you. With all of the expenses involved with a wedding, the thought of paying for everything all at once and not having to worry about the money again is extremely appealing.
All things considered, remember that all-inclusive trips aren’t for everyone. Ask yourselves these few questions before making the big decision:
Do you like being active on your vacations?
When it comes to tropical destinations in particular, tons of activities are already included in the all-inclusive package. If you don’t see yourself getting up to partake in things such as snorkeling, kayaking, cave tours, etc., you may just be paying extra for no reason.
Do you plan to drink a lot?
We all know how overpriced alcoholic drinks can be on vacation. With most all-inclusive packages, alcohol is almost always included, meaning that you don’t have to worry about the cost of those Mai Tais on the beach.
Would you rather be left alone?
Still wrapped up in wedded bliss, we know that you and your new spouse will want to have a bit of alone time during your honeymoon. However, do you want it to stay that way throughout the majority of your trip, or are you interested in meeting new people? All-inclusive trips often bring like-minded people together, and you may just find yourselves sharing cocktails and spending a great deal of your trip with another couple. If this doesn’t sound like the most ideal situation, ask your travel agent about the resort’s atmosphere before booking.
