The Free Perks At These Caribbean Resorts Go Beyond Unlimited Drinks & WiFi
By Kelsey Marie
When staying at resorts, free WiFi and an open bar can feel like the ultimate perks. During my trip to the Dominican Republic a few summers ago, I was in heaven after receiving welcome cocktails and heading to the beach while scrolling my timeline courtesy of the free internet.
However, resorts are aspiring to give travelers so much more. They want to step their game up, providing us with the free perks we really deserve.
These Caribbean resorts are currently going all out for their travelers — from cooking classes to garden tours; you’re sure to get your money worth with these free perks.
