    Hello! Interval International has offered me an accommodation certificate and I was looking at the Palace Resorts in Cancun. The resort representative quoted me a price of $272/day/per person!....(for food ?!?!?!) Does this sound right?? Thanks.

    Yes, it sounds right and it's ridiculous. Mandatory all inclusive timeshares are almost always a very bad deal. It would be cheaper to go to Expedia and just book it for cash outright.

    And, if you buy through II or RCI, sometimes you are required to pay for the full occupancy of the unit (e.g. 4 persons) and for the full 7 nights...even if there are fewer people in your party and you may be arriving late or leaving early.

    We don't recommend selecting an AI resort through the Exchange companies. Try Costco, Apple Vacations, or the resort's own website.

    Thanks! Looks like I'll be using that Accommodation Certificate for Orlando, FL instead.

    Check Costco Travel. They often have good deals for All Inclusive in mexico that include air fare.

    I too found the mandatory inclusive fees on RCI for Mexican timeshares insane. 200 plus a day fee where food and drink are cheap?

    What are they smoking?

    Yes, just pay your maintenance fee and use whatever left in your wallet to book an all inclusive package for cash. Sheesh.
