Share on: Share on Google+

Vista Verde Guest RanchThere’s a lot of fine print that goes along with all-inclusive resorts: Are premium drinks included? Specialty restaurants? Motorized water sports? But in some cases, those resorts actually include some really crazy amenities.

In Mexico, the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit isn’t just kid-friendly…they have their own baby concierge. They’ll get you whatever you need—toys, gear, organic baby food, etc. To top it off, they’ll even handle your baby’s first haircut.

Club Med properties include the traditional meals, drinks, and snorkeling. But at Sandpiper Bay in Florida, you can also participate in a real Tennis Academy. These are top-tier coaches who will teach guests as young as four, on both clay and hard courts.

Or, how about… circus school? That’s right, Club Med properties in Florida, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic actually include trapeze lessons, tightrope walking, and juggling classes.

But, don’t forget, an all-inclusive resort doesn’t necessarily have to be at the beach. Dude ranches often include meals and activities in the price.

So, go to a place like Vista Verde Ranch in Colorado, and your rate will include horseback riding, guided fly fishing, and even cooking classes.
