Go for an all-inclusive resort in the fall

Sandals Royal Caribbean's Jamaican bungalows come with butler service, 24-hour in-room dining, and a water taxi to take you to and from the mainland.
  • Fall is the best season for an all-inclusive vacation, when rooms are often significantly cheaper.
  • Off-site activities, usually limited to a certain number of people, also tend to fill up fast during the high seasons.
  • Seasonal price drops on airfare – on both domestic and international airfares – start in August.

Hurricane season doesn’t really faze Maddie Winters. For the past five years, the Philadelphia-based travel blogger has celebrated her autumnal birthday at all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean. And she’s not alone.

Historically, fall has been a slower time for all-inclusive resorts, but both Club Med – the pioneer in the all-inclusive concept – and Sandals Resorts tell USA TODAY they’ve seen an increase in fall bookings in the past few years.

“This fall season is shaping up to be one of our best ever – and that’s on the heels of a stronger-than-ever 2021 fall season in which many of our resorts generated twice as much demand from prior years,” said Adam Stewart, executive chairman of Sandals Resorts International. 

What makes Winters and savvy travelers willing to travel during a time that’s synonymous with tropical storms? They’ve discovered one of the hospitality industry’s best-kept secrets: Fall is the best season for an all-inclusive vacation. Here’s why.
