It’s no secret that Los Cabos is one of the more expensive Mexican vacation destinations.
That being said, it doesn’t mean that you can’t find ways to have a Los Cabos vacation on a budget, and one way to do that is by booking an all-inclusive resort for your stay.
While nightly rates range considerably, there are still 7 ways an all-inclusive can make your Los Cabos vacation more affordable.
Saving On Dining
Dining out is getting more and more expensive, and while it might seem like it would be easy to eat on a budget, it very rarely is.
Additionally, vacation is about splurging, not limiting yourself, and at an all-inclusive you can save on dining and splurge at the same time.
Most all-inclusives have numerous dining spots, and many include 24-hour in-room dining, so you can have whatever your heart desires at any time of the day or night without breaking the bank.

Drinks On The House
Everybody wants to have a night out while on vacation, and at an all-inclusive, it’s included.
You’ll find at least a couple of bars or lounges at most Los Cabos all-inclusives where you can sit and enjoy a drink or two or more if that’s what you want to do.
At some of these all-inclusives, they even offer premium liquors and refill your complimentary minibar on a daily basis, so you never have to go far for a tasty beverage.

Activities To Keep The Kids Busy
Keeping the kids busy on vacation is one of the biggest expenses to budget for, but you can minimize that expense by staying at an all-inclusive.
There are many family-friendly all-inclusives to choose from, some with their own water parks, game rooms, and/or kid’s clubs.
At the very least, most family-friendly all-inclusives will offer daily kid-friendly activities.

Fun For The Whole Family
In addition to various kid-friendly and adult-only activities, many all-inclusives also include certain other activities and excursions for free or at a discounted price.
At Hotel RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas, for example, guests can enjoy trying scuba diving in the pool for free and snorkeling and horseback riding for a fee.
Guests can also enjoy tennis volleyball, and fitness activities 6 days a week.

Many all-inclusives offer some type of nightly entertainment that’s included in the all-inclusive price.
Sometimes, it’s live music or live performances; other times, it’s themed parties, often different each night.
These free entertainment options in the evenings really help keep spending down for travelers who like to keep busy throughout their vacation.

While not all resorts offer complimentary airport transfers, there are a number of them that do, and since transportation is pricey, this is a great benefit to have included.
Even the all-inclusives that do not offer complimentary transfers are likely to provide transfers for a fee.
And there is a good chance that it will be less than other transportation options, and less hassle too because the resort will handle the details.

No Blowing The Budget
The number one way that staying at an all-inclusive in Los Cabos can make your vacation more affordable is that you don’t have to worry about blowing your budget.
Once you pay for your all-inclusive, you’re paying for your entire vacation, aside from a little cash for some well-deserved tips.
You may want to spend some extra money on off-site activities, but it definitely won’t add up as fast when you book an all-inclusive for your Los Cabos vacation.
