Hi everyone, my boyfriend and I are graduate students, and we are looking to get away this January. After some research, I've decided on Negril, the beach looks amazing.
My question is, I have never done an all-inclusive/group type vacation, I've always been a very independent traveler, studying the local language before I go, renting a car, doing it all myself, etc etc. But this winter both my boyfriend and I need to study. So, our plan is to hit the books, just on the beach.
First of all - is this a reasonable plan? Second of all, should we just do an all-inclusive resort, so that we won't have to plan anything, save time, etc? I was looking into Couples Swept Away, which sounds appealing, but it also looks like there's a lot of cheap hotels on the beach. All we really want to do is get a chair on the beach and stay there all day, reading (perhaps with headphones). Do the benefits of the all-inclusive outweigh simply getting a hotel? We won't be doing too many activities.
What would people recommend? Thanks!
