I like Fiesta Premier or Occidental Grand Papagayo. Most of the all-inclusives are little islands all on their own...not much local stuff.

Why go all-inclusive? Are you scared of being abroad? Tourism is quite a damaging industry, but AI is about the worst there is, with most of the corporations running them being based out of the country where the resorts are and very few of the tourist dollars going in to local pockets.

There a many splended locally run hotels, and eating out in local restaurants almost guarantees that you will be supporting the local economy. It seems to me that you have the climate and the beaches in Florida, so why not find out a bit more about the world and avoid the isolation of AI?
