Costa Rica boasts some amazing all inclusive hotels and resorts. You pay one price and you get all your meals include PLUS unlimited alcohol. It sounds amazing until you realize what you’re missing out on.
The all inclusives are not cheap in Costa Rica, so you end up staying at the resort for almost the entirety of your trip trying to “get your moneys worth”.
You could have just stayed home if you plan to come to Costa Rica and not leave a resort.
Instead, book a stay at a Bed & Breakfast, or a hotel that offers a free breakfast, or even an AirBNB.
You’ll probably end up spending about the same amount of money as you would on an all inclusive, but you’ll get to experience more of the culture of Costa Rica.
