The holiday travel season will be here in a matter of weeks, but there’s still time to plan how you want to spend your Thanksgiving vacation. November is a great time to consider hitting the beach in places like the Caribbean and Mexico. If you want a break from tradition and trade the stress of having to cook a turkey for a cold Mai Tai on the beach, these all-inclusive resorts in places like Jamaica and the Dominican Republic will make sure you don’t have to lift a finger this Thanksgiving.
Hotel Riu Montego Bay

Hotel Riu Montego Bay is all-inclusive 24/7, and it’s calm, peaceful surroundings make it an ideal for a beach getaway. There are themed restaurants and a buffet for meals, water activities like kayaking ample opportunity to take a dip in the freshwater swimming pool and Jacuzzi before heading to the wellness center for a spa treatment. If you want all of the benefits of going on a cruise without having to set foot on a boat, this is the resort for you.
Holiday Inn Resort Los Cabos All Inclusive
Put those IHG rewards points to use over the Thanksgiving break and head to Mexico for a relaxing holiday under the sun. Holiday Inn Resort Los Cabos is an oceanfront property, and while the beach isn’t swimmable, the outdoor pool, adults-only section of the hotel, and unlimited food more than make up for it.
The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort
For those that wish to stay stateside for Thanksgiving, The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort located in California’s Santa Barbara Wine Country goes back to the basics, but it’s a ranch experience that is perfect for couples and families. The night rate here includes breakfast and dinner, and the resort offers activities like archery, movie screenings and tennis and no additional cost.
Iberostar Costa Dorada
If you tense up when you hear “all-inclusive” because of the potentially high price tag, Iberostar Costa Dorada Dominican Republic is for you. The Dominican Republic has a slew of all-inclusive resorts at affordable prices, but Iberostar Costa Dorada is a five-star property that gets points for being family-friendly, having three restaurants and a buffet, and for costing less than $700 for a 4-night stay over the Thanksgiving break for two people.
Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino
The Dutch Caribbean doesn’t get nearly as much attention as other islands, but Curaçao is a natural wonder that is often ignored by American travelers for more well known Aruba. The island isn’t filled with resorts, but Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino offer an all-inclusive Unlimited-Fun package that covers all meals, most activities, and entertainment.
