We definitely recommend going all-inclusive on your Dominican Republic holiday. This ensures you get a wide variety of food options in your resort and don’t have to worry about opening your wallet while you’re away. From family-friendly hotels to adults-only resorts, you’re sure to find something to suit your needs and budget. The fabulous Dreams Palm Beach Resort is the ultimate haven of tranquillity, luxury and relaxation.

I love Mexico – for a beach lover like me, it’s paradise! But Mexico isn’t all white sandy beaches and all-inclusive resorts. Get out and see some of the beautiful attractions resulting from Mexico’s Mayan history.
