Costa Rica All Inclusive Resorts

Whether visiting Costa Rica is your once-in-a-lifetime trip, annual trip or just the spot you picked for this year there is one thing that is true – travel is not cheap (and if it is it probably isn’t going to be a great experience!).

No matter what brings you to the “rich coast” that is Costa Rica, you should be looking for ways to make your dollar stretch.

You want to spend as long as you can in Costa Rica, so that you can experience all that the coastlines and forests have to offer, but that can be hard to do if you are on a budget.

That’s where all-inclusive resorts & hotels come in and help.

Savvy travelers know that they can use an all-inclusive resort to tie up all the loose ends of travel so that they can just experience their surroundings.

If you have to worry about how you are going to get from place to place, where you are going to stay, what you’re going to eat and what you are going to do when you get where you’re going, your trip becomes more work than play.

All-inclusive resorts are available with all different sorts of inclusions and levels, so anyone from families to honeymooners, and from budget-watchers to big spenders, can find exactly what they need to customize their own vacation.

All-inclusives take the guess work out of traveling to Costa Rica, and allow you to kick back and enjoy a day on the beach, an adrenaline-filled rafting adventure, or an exploratory hike.

All-inclusive with Transportation

Transportation is included in some all inclusive resorts. Since this is one of the biggest expenses for travelers, it is one of the areas that you want to focus on for getting a deal.

Check to see what the regular prices would be if you weren’t using an all-inclusive package, and compare it to the cost if you use the package. Transportation can be included in your trip to and from the airport with some resorts.

All-inclusive Resorts with Meals & Drinks

Meals and drinks are likely to be included, though this is going to be limited to what your Costa Rica hotel has to offer.

You’ll likely be able to have three meals a day, and alcohol will be excluded from the free drinks. Of course, you might want to plan to eat out a few times, so you could see if you could reduce the number of included meals so that you aren’t essentially double paying for meals.

If you want the peace of mind of knowing that you can eat on site at your hotel, though, then an all-inclusive resort in Costa Rica with meals and drinks is your saving grace. This is a great option for families and for travelers that have large groups.

All-inclusive with Alcohol & Entertainment

While a some all-inclusive resorts to Costa Rica excludes alcoholic beverages, there are resorts that include alcohol and entertainment as part of the check list.

This type of resort is popular with newlyweds and couples, since it covers everything they need to relax during the day and to party at night.

A great place for couples to look into is Guanacaste. If it’s a more romantic trip that needs to have some luxury, try North Puntarenas.
