Escape for cheap on an all-inclusive getaway in Montego Bay at the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort.

By Vince Font

If you’re like me, you don’t have relatives living near the most exciting vacation destinations in the world. The good news is I may have found the perfect vacation — an all inclusive vacation. My experience at the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort Montego Bay All Inclusive is what did it for me; now I finally believe in the elusive cheap Caribbean vacation that always seemed too good to be true. In fact, when I suggested a three-night getaway to the SunSpree, my wife gave me her trademark “Are you kidding me?” look. That look disappeared when I delivered the details on the asking price; At 60 percent off, we weren’t going to let our very own cheap Caribbean vacation slip away. We didn’t wait a second — we pounced.

On the beach at the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort Montego Bay

I love Jamaica because it embodies what most people envision to be the perfect Caribbean vacation: soaking in the sun on a beautiful beach, sipping a tropical fruit drink, and getting lost in the omnipresent reggae riffs. What’s also great about Jamaica is that its the perfectly cheap Caribbean vacation — accessible to just about anyone on any budget, not just the rich and famous.

My formula for a fantastic Jamaican getaway starts with a solid hotel.  I highly recommend the all inclusive Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort in Montego Bay. It has beautifully renovated public areas, a perfect location, clean, comfy rooms, and all the food and drink you can consume — all included!  However, you will have to venture across the street at least once during your trip for lunch at Scotchies, arguably the best jerk food in all of Jamaica. I recommend the ¼ pound chicken, festival (fried dough), and a bottle of Red Stripe to wash it all down. Yum! And it all costs less than $5 per person.

All-inclusive: Designed for big family fun, small budgets

All-inclusive vacations provide a great opportunity to plan a  family vacation on a budget. With one upfront payment, you’ve taken care of rooms, food, drinks, entertainment, activities taxes and tips. The beautiful thing? No need to carry around large sums of money — something not so fun at the swim-up bar (wet money is generally frowned upon).

There are many all-inclusive packages available to families, but here are three options if you’re looking for value, variety and an exceptional vacation:

1) Barcelo Tucancun Beach – All-Inclusive - Cancun, Mexico
25% off per night. Valid for travel before 12/24/10.
