The last resort

All in for all-inclusive travel

Sitting back is the new adventure map. In 2022, people want to get away—to beautiful escapes where they won’t have to lift a finger. Millennials, Gen X-ers and boomers are turning to resorts and all-inclusive packages for easy getaways. Another daiquiri, please.
