The All-Inclusive formula came out of the Dominican Republic and is the leading formula on the market. It is an Everything-Included package that really does include everything! Right up to drinks at the bar at any hour of the day.
This is contrary to the Full-Board formula, which includes all three meals but generally not alcoholic beverages, with your meal or at the bar. Or even the Everything-Included formula, which nevertheless has restricted hours for the bar during the day or for the ice cream for children. With an all-inclusive formula, everything is included in the price. It is also, and above all, the best way to be in control of your budget.
With an all-inclusive, you know that everything is paid for and that there wont be any extra costs. The inconvenience: the trip loses some of its charm by not promoting exchanges with the locals and the local culture, and by not pushing you to discover the surroundings and create business for the local shop owners.
