How do you appease both the beach bum and the avid explorer? An all-inclusive resort in a fascinating destination can pacify all types of travelers. Plus, it gives your more independent boomer travelers the autonomy to choose whether they would like to relax or seek out a memorable adventure.
These all-inclusive resorts can function much like a cruise where it’s up to the passengers what to do with their day, yet they enjoy all the other social benefits of traveling with a group. These all-inclusive resort destinations for groups range from the traditional beach locales to more exotic areas that might be on your group members’ bucket list.
