I would say we all need a good holiday. And if you’re already worried about booking (or at least dreaming) to go to your next Covid, we’ve got the right thing for you.
Just check out TripAdvisor’s top all-inclusive resorts from last year. Winners are determined based on the amount and quality of reviews from travelers over the past year, in addition to booking interest for those spots.
Why include all, you ask? Consider it the ultimate stress-free way to access a variety of cooling facilities (read: free meals, snacks, drinks, day and night activities) for a final price. Of course, sometimes this turns out to be a high price point, but it also means that you don’t have to reach for your wallet. Also, if you get the right deal, it can actually save you money.
Below, you’ll find 25 prize-winning locations that vary in price from real bargaining (thinking about 200 200 per night) to over-the-top luxury.
The U.S. State Department is currently recommending that travelers seek country-specific travel advice through their website or see the CDC’s latest guidelines. Before you plan an international trip, check out these sites before and after you leave. In light of the obvious health risks here, be sure to take precautions and consider the risks of international travel before booking. Once you reach your destination, you may have to comply with strict curfews and mask orders, and may face heavy fines and in some cases even jail time for health violations.
